Abstract:

Cyanobacteria of the genera Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus are an important contributors to photosynthetic productivity in the water ecosystems. The discovery of genes (psbA, psbD) that encode key photosystem II proteins (D1, D2) in the genomes of phages that infect these cyanobacteria suggests new models for the regulation, function and evolution of photosynthesis in the immense aqueous ecosystems. Potential recombination of phage and host genes requires studying diversity of these genes in phages of different ponds. Here, using metagenomic data the largest channel reservoir of Kazakhstan samples, we show that the different viral psbA genes are presented in the environment
