Strain information

Phycobiliprotein types: Cr-PE 545

Pigment type: n.a.

Habitat: marine

Remark: Only the nucleomorph genome is available, so the phycobilin lyase set is only partial.

Genome sequence

Genome status: draft assembly

Sequencing center: JGI


  • Bolte et al., 2008. Complementation of a phycocyanin-bilin lyase from Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 with a nucleomorph-encoded open reading frame from the cryptophyte Guillardia theta BMC Plant Biol, 8, 56.

Gene Locus tag Genbank Remark Length Last change
CpcT family GTHECHR1104 XP_001713602.1 Low protoscan score but best BLASTP match to the CpcT family. This cpcT-like gene was characterized by complementation of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 cpcT (Bolte et al. 2008). However, since G. theta possesses PE (Cr-PE 545) not PC, the function of this gene (despite its closest similarity to cpcT than cpeT families) must likely be to attach a PEB at Cys-159 of beta-PE. 222 09-28-2012
