Role of Amination and Transamination in Ammonium Incorporation in Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii
In C. reinhardtii, like in other unicellular green algae, the main route of ammonium incorporation into carbon skeletons is the so-called glutamine synthetase/glutamate synthase (GS/GOGAT) cycle (Miflin and Lea 1977).
