Erwachen aus der Chlorose: Wie scheintote Cyanobakterien ergrünen

Abstract

Non-diazotrophic cyanobacteria respond to nitrogen starvation by growth
arrest and pigment degradation (chlorosis), resulting in dormant cells
that are able to survive starvation periods for extended periods of time.
Resuscitation from chlorosis by nutrient availability is a developmental
process that is supported by a highly organized, genetically determined
program.
