Localization of Strains

  • I search in internet where we can get the strain that need in our project. We need this strain because we like to have the genes of our synthesized sequences in wild type.
  • Chlamydomonas reinhardtii-> We can get it in the "Instituto de Fisiología Celular, UNAM" in the lab of Dr. Diego González Halphen.

This strain has Hydrogenase G and Hydrogenase EF, HydG and HydEF genes.

  • Clostridium acetobutylicum-> We can get it in the strain collection of the CINVESTAV from Mexico.

This strain has Hydrogenase A, Hyd A gene.

  • Desulfovibrio africanus-> We can get it in the ATCC: The Global Bioresource Center.

This strain has pyruvate ferredoxin oxidoreductase, PFOR gene.


I ask Dr. Diego Gonzále Halphen if he could give us clhamydomonas reinhardtii.

I ask Jovita Martínez, who take care of the strain collection of CINVESTAV-Mexico, if she could give us clostridium acetobutylicum.
