Phylogenetic and Biochemical Evidence Supports the Recruitment of an ADP-Glucose Translocator for the Export of Photosynthate during Plastid Endosymbiosis
Molecular biology and evolution
The acquisition of photosynthesis by eukaryotic cells through enslavement of a cyanobacterium represents one of the most remarkable turning points in the history of life on Earth. In addition to endosymbiotic gene transfer, the acquisition of a protein import apparatus and the coordination of gene expression between host and endosymbiont genomes, the establishment of a metabolic connection was crucial for a functional endosymbiosis. It was previously hypothesized that the first metabolicdoi:10.1093/molbev/msq158 pmid:20576760 fatcat:g3ikbpqdlzerbamei3mp72zowq
