Comments P.1886 right column bottom paragraph: "For all modeled photosynthetic single cells, the excess oxygen concentration within the cell is negligible compared with the oxygen concentration of 230 µM, which is typical for air-saturated water. As expected, the most primitive known cyanobacterium, Gloeobacter violaceus, generates the lowest excess oxygen level of 0.025µM or ~0.01% of ambient oxygen concentration. In Synechocystis and Synechococcus, the excess concentration is substantially higher, 0.064µM and 0.25µM, respectively, but still well below the ambient oxygen concentration."
