Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 was grown photoautotrophically in BG-11 medium supplemented with 8mM NaHCO3 and buffered with 10mM HEPES (pH 7.4). The cells were grown in 250ml flasks at 32oC under a light intensity of 25µmol photons m-2 s-1. Cultures were bubbled with sterile air containing 1% (v/v) CO2. Log phase cells (OD730nm=0.6) were harvested by centrifugation (2000×g for 12 min) washed once and then re-suspended in sulfate-free media (MgSO4 replaced by the same molarity of MgCl2). In addition, all S-containing trace metals in BG-11 were replaced by non-S containing metals. Cells were harvested and fixed for microarray analysis by adding 10% (v/v) ice-cold 5% phenol in ethanol stop solution at the following time points: before S-depravation (time 0, control), 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 hr after S-depravation. S-deprivation with HEPES buffering control experiment was performed as described above, except that HEPES buffer was used upon sulfate removal. Bacterial samples for a time course were taken at time 0, 1, 12 and 24 hrs after sulfate withdrawal. Growth stage control experiment was done in parallel with S deprivation experiments. Samples were taken at 0, 1, 2.5, 4, 7, 11 and 48 hr after OD730nm reached 0.60. All the experiments were done in biological replicates.
