Figure 1

Growth and fluorescence analysis of six putative truncated antenna mutants (TAM1-6) of Chlorella sorokiniana . Culture samples were spotted onto minimal medium (upper panels: phototrophic growth) or acetate-containing medium (lower panels: mixotrophic growth), grown in continuous light (50 ╬╝mol photons m-2 s-1) for seven days, and then dark-adapted for pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) fluorescence analysis. False color images reveal that all six mutants have lower fluorescence emissions compared to the wild ype (WT), with TAM-2 and TAM-4 the most pronounced.
