Area: Plant/Algal Physiology Influences of iron deficiency on photosynthesis and growth of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii A recent study investigated the impact of iron deficiency on bioenergetic pathways in Chlamydomonas, a genus of green alga. The researchers found that acetate-grown iron-limited cells maintained high growth rates by suppressing photosynthesis and increasing respiration instead. In order to study this phenomenon the researcher used antibodies that are available on antibodies-online, namely an anti-plasma membrane ferroxidase (or anti-FOX1) antibody and an anti-COXII - mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit II antibody. More antibodies against »Cox2 and »FOX1 Read the complete study here: Source: Photosynth Res. 2010 Jul;105(1):39-49. Epub 2010 Jun 10.
