Title Impact of a heterotroph, Alteromonas MIT1002, on the transcriptome of Prochlorococcus NATL2A
Organisms Alteromonas macleodii; Prochlorococcus marinus str. NATL2A
Experiment type Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary We examine how the transcriptome of Prochlorococcus strain NATL2A changes in the presence of a naturally co-occurring heterotroph, Alteromonas macleodii MIT1002. Significant changes in the Prochlorococcus transcriptome were evident within six hours of co-culture, with groups of transcripts changing in different temporal waves. Many transcriptional changes persisted throughout the 48-hour experiment, indicating that the presence of the heterotroph affected a stable shift in Prochlorococcus physiology. These initial transcriptome changes largely correspond to reduced stress conditions within Prochlorococcus, as inferred from decreases in relative abundance for transcripts encoding DNA repair enzymes and many members of the ‘high-light inducible’ family of stress response proteins. Notable changes were also seen in transcripts encoding components of the photosynthetic apparatus (particularly an increase in PSI subunits and chlorophyll synthesis enzymes), ribosomal proteins and biosynthetic enzymes. Changes in secretion-related proteins and transporters also highlight the potential for metabolic exchange between the two strains.
Overall design At each of 7 timepoints, samples from 3 biological replicate co-cultures are compared to 3 biological replicate axenic Prochlorococcus cultures that serve as a control.
