    Abstract

    Prochloron spp. are obligate photosynthetic cyanobacterial symbionts found in cellulose tunics of many didemnid family ascidians. This specific bacterium has a housekeeping gene called cao (chlorophyll b synthase / chlorophyll a oxygenase) that is involved in chlorophyll b biosynthesis. Chlorophyll b is synthesized from chlorophyll a by chlorophyll a oxygenase, which contains consensus sequences for a (2Fe-2S) Rieske center and for mononuclear iron binding sites. Our investigation shows that Prochloron spp. isolated from Lissoclinum patella of Manado Bay is a Prochloron didemni as this species showed 100% identity to Prochloron didemni in a Blast search program in NCBI database. The partial Cao gene used for identification contains the conserved Rieske domain with 100% similarity to Prochloron ididemni. Moreover, phylogentic relationship of these organisms inferred from Cao amino-acid sequence indicates the bootstrap values of 100 in the inner nodes of both species indicating that theses two organisms are identical
