Iron limitation and the role of Siderophores in marine Synechococcus
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
Marine cyanobacteria in the genus Synechococcus are widely distributed and contribute significantly to global primary productivity. In many parts of the ocean their growth is limited by a lack of iron, an essential nutrient ...
Trace metals and the ecology of marine cyanobacteria
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
The marine cyanobacteria Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus are important primary producers in oligotrophic oceans. The abundance and cell division rates of these cyanobacteria can be influenced by trace metals such as iron ...
Comparative analyses of aryl hydrocarbon receptor structure, function, and evolution in marine mammals
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
Marine mammals possess high body burdens of persistent organic pollutants, including PCBs and dioxin-like compounds (DLC). Chronic environmental or dietary exposure to these chemicals can disrupt the function of reproductive ...
