Method p.2206 left column 2nd paragraph:"[Investigators] characterized inorganic carbon (Ci) acquisition and processing in Prochlorococcus spp. MED4, examined the effect of long-term acclimation to different CO2 concentrations on CCM physiology and gene expression, and searched metagenomes for Prochlorococcus spp. CCM genes to determine if CCMs in the natural populations are similar to cultured strains."
Comments p.2208 right column 2nd paragraph:"A mechanistic model of the Prochlorococcus spp. CCM (see “Materials and Methods”) was parameterized using data obtained in this study and values from the literature (Table III Fig. 5A). The model was used to assess [investigators’] understanding of CCM structure based on its ability to match rates of photosynthesis, CO2 efflux, and internal Ci concentrations observed under culture conditions. While the model structure should be applicable to a broader range of environmental conditions, the specific implementation used here should not be applied without modification to more general environmental conditions, since the model was parameterized based on cultures grown under a narrow range of conditions (constant temperature, light, etc.)."
