Abstract 

Various fluorescent proteins have been developed for in vivo reporter systems in diverse prokaryotes and eukaryotes. However, few in vivo imaging systems have been reported for the model algae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii or Pyropia sp. In this study, an effective imaging system using cyan fluorescent protein (CFP) was developed for the green alga C. reinhardtii, and its application was also successful in the red macroalgae Pyropia tenera and P. yezoensis. For optimization of CFP expression in C. reinhardtii and Pyropia sp., we modified codon usage in the CFP gene (CFP), generating PtCrCFP (Pyropia tenera/Chlamydomonas reinhardtii CFP). PtCrCFP was successfully expressed in PtCrCFP-expressing UVM11 transgenic lines, and high accumulation levels of PtCrCFP were found by western blotting. Consistent with these results, PtCrCFP fluorescence was clearly detected with a low level of chlorophyll background fluorescence in PtCrCFP-expressing UVM11 transgenic lines. In Pyropia sp. gametophytic cells, transient expression of PtCrCFP fluorescence was distinctly visualized. PtCrCFP fluorescence was also observed during the regeneration of monospores and young gametophytes from PtCrCFP-expressing P. yezoensis gametophytic cells. These results suggest that PtCrCFP may be useful as an in vivo reporter in green algae due to the short emission wavelength of CFP, which provides a low level of chlorophyll background fluorescence. This study also presents the possibility of PtCrCFP's use as a visible selection marker for the generation of transgenic lines in the red algae Pyropia sp. Thus, PtCrCFP as an in vivo visualization tool may offer new opportunities for the functional analysis of genetic studies in both green and red algae.
