Abstract

The nucleotide sequence of the gene coding for the F0F1-ATPase gamma-subunit (atpC) from the transformable cyanobacterium Synchocystis 6083 has been determined. The deduced translation product consists of 314 amino acid residues and is highly homologous (72% identical residues) to the sequences of other cyanobacterial gamma-subunits. The Synechocystis 6803 sequence is also homologous to the chloroplast gamma-sequence. Like in the other cyanobacterial subunits, only the first of the 3 cysteine residues, which are involved in energy-linked functions of the gamma-subunit in spinach chloroplasts, is conserved in Synechocystis 6803.
