TABLE 1

Quantification of average carboxysome sizes and numbers per cell section

TABLE 1
  • a The parameters listed indicate the conditions under which F. diplosiphon cells were grown as described in Methods and Materials (i.e., RL, red light at ∼10 to 12 μmol m−2 s−1; GL, green light at ∼10 to 12 μmol m−2 s−1; LL, low GL-enriched WL at 12 μmol m−2 s−1; ML, medium GL-enriched WL at 30 μmol m−2 s−1; HL, high GL-enriched WL at 100 μmol m−2 s−1; Ci upshift, air enriched with 3% CO2; Air, ambient air; Ci downshift, growth under air enriched with 3% CO2, followed by a shift to ambient air for ∼19 h.

  • b Numbers for carboxysome size and carboxysomes/cell section are presented as averages ± SE. Comparisons subjected to statistical analyses using a Student's t test that resulted in P values of <0.05 are indicated as follows: *, mutant versus WT under the same conditions; #, significant difference versus reference condition (RL, LL, or Ci upshift) for the same strain.
