Title: Reduction of Photoautotrophic Productivity in the Cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. Strain PCC 6803 by Phycobilisome Antenna Truncation

Abstract

ABSTRACT Truncation of the algal light-harvesting antenna is expected to enhance photosynthetic productivity. The wild type and three mutant strains ofSynechocystissp. strain 6803 with a progressively smaller phycobilisome antenna were examined under different light and CO 2conditions. Surprisingly, such antenna truncation resulted in decreased whole-culture productivity for this cyanobacterium.
