Gene expression patterns of L/D-synchronized Prochlorococcus marinus PCC9511 cultures under HL and UV growth conditions, as measured by qPCR. A, dnaA. B, ftsZ. C, sepF. The percentage of cells in the S phase of the cell cycle under HL (solid line) and HL+UV (dashed line) are also shown for comparison. Error bars indicate mean deviation for two biological replicates. For each graph, transcript levels were normalized to the reference time point 6:00 in HL condition. Grey and black bars indicate light and dark periods.
