Figure 4

Relative gene expression levels during phototrophic versus chemotrophic growth. Only representative genes responsible for carbon metabolism, nitrogen fixation and hydrogen production are shown. Gene name (encoding enzyme): pfkA (6-phosphofructokinase), pykA (pyruvate kinase), acsA (acetyl-CoA synthase), ackA (acetate kinase), ppdK (pyruvate phosphate dikinase), pckA (PEP carboxykinase), fdxR (Fd-NADP+ oxidoreductase, FNR), pshB (RC core polypeptide, PshB), fdx (ferredoxin for FNR), porA (pyruvate:Fd oxidoreductase), bchY (chlorophyll reductase, subunit Y), bchB (protochlorophyllide reductase, subunit B), bchE (anaerobic cyclase), and bchG (bacteriochlorophyll synthase).
