Study : Breakdown of the Photosynthetic Apparatus in Chromochloris zofingiensis
Breakdown of the Photosynthetic Apparatus in Chromochloris zofingiensis
RNA-Seq of Chromochloris zofingiensis following the transition from photoautotrophic growth to heterotrophic growth on glucose. Overall design: Cultures of Chromochloris zofingiensis were grown diurnally (16 h light, 8 h dark) in 100 μmol photons m^−2 s^−1 medium light (ML) in glucose-free media (glc-). At t = 0, cultures were transferred to media supplemented with 10 mM glucose (glc+). Samples were collected in quadruplicate at 0, 0.5, 1, 3, 6, and 12 h for glc- cultures and at 0.5, 1, 3, 6, and 12 h for glc+ cultures. All samples were collected during the 16hr daylight period.
