In contrast to plants and green algae, diatoms and most other algal groups do not accumulate storage polysaccharides in their plastids. The diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum possesses only a single gene encoding a putative β-1,3-glucan synthase (PtBGS). Here, we characterize this enzyme by expressing GFP fusion proteins in P. tricornutum and by creating and investigating corresponding gene silencing mutants. We demonstrate that PtBGS is a vacuolar protein located in the tonoplast. Metabolite analyses of two mutant strains with reduced amounts of PtBGS reveal a reduction in their chrysolaminarin content and an increase of soluble sugars and lipids. This indicates that carbohydrates are shunted into alternative pathways when chrysolaminarin production is impaired. The mutant strains show reduced growth and lower photosynthetic capacities, while possessing higher photoprotective abilities than WT cells. Interestingly, a strong reduction in PtBGS expression also results in aberrations of the usually very regular thylakoid membrane patterns, including increased thylakoid thickness, reduced numbers of thylakoids per plastid, and increased numbers of lamellae per thylakoid stack. Our data demonstrate the complex intertwinement of carbohydrate storage in the vacuoles with carbohydrate metabolism, photosynthetic homeostasis, and plastid morphology.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Lepetit, Bernard</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Jeblick, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Haferkamp, Ilka</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Kroth, Peter G.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
