Fig. 15

Nitrate assimilation gene clustering in Chlorophytes. In the upper part of the figure, the algal phylogeny (left) and the corresponding taxa (right) bracket the gene clusters and unclustered paralogs in each taxon. Gene and cluster lengths are to scale; color codes and acronyms are listed below the 5 kb bar. Phylogeny and clusters were obtained as described in Methods. The lower part of the figure displays as vertical bars the expression levels of the nitrate assimilation genes in the alga grown alone or with the fungus. The full names of the taxa listed from top to bottom are: Micromonas pusilla CCMP1545; Micromonas RCC299; Ostreococcus tauri; Ostreococcus lucimarinus; Ostreococcus sp. RCC809; Chlamydomonas reinhardtii; Volvox carteri; Chlorella variabilis NC64A; Coccomyxa subellipsoidea C-169; Asterochloris glomerata. All the corresponding genome data are at [164]
