They have confirmed for the first time that a plant, the green alga Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii, not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants.
Two years ago, a UC San Diego team of biologists headed by Mayfield, who is also the director of the San Diego Center for Algae Biotechnology, a research consortium seeking to develop transportation fuels from algae, published a landmark study demonstrating that many complex human therapeutic proteins, such as monoclonal antibodies and growth hormones, could be produced by Chlamydomonas

In the green alga Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii three different nitrate/nitrite transport systems (Nar2, Nrt2;1, Nrt2;2) have been identified as high affinity nitrate/nitrite transport genes (Quesada, et al.
The starch derived from green algae called chlamydomonas
reinhardtii was genetically tweaked to carry the vaccine antigens.
A sharp increase can be seen in the NPP Chlamydomonas

Washington, March 25 (ANI): Researchers studying a hydrogen-producing, single-celled green alga, Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii, have unmasked a previously unknown fermentation pathway that may open up possibilities for increasing hydrogen production.
Xanthophyll cycle mutants from Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii indicate a role for zeaxanthin in the D1 protein turnover.
As part of the agreement, researchers at Iowa State University will generate data demonstrating the utility of EXZACT[TM] in the microalgae Chlamydomonas
, a model system for the green technologies that will produce the carbohydrates, lipids or hydrocarbons used in high-energy, renewable bioproducts.

In 2006, scientists at Wayne State University in Detroit reported that they had inserted a gene for a light-gathering protein from a green algae, Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii, into the retinas of mice with a disease similar to retinitis pigmentosa.
One photobioreactor utilized hydrogenase activity of the green alga, Chlamydomonas
reinbardtii CC-503, cw92 [mt+].
Grossman's research has exploited both eukaryotic and prokaryotic photosynthetic organisms and he has served as the Lead Investigator on the Chlamydomonas
Genome Project, which involves the participation of four other internationally recognized laboratories.
