Method P.467 left column 4th paragraph: "Glycogen was extracted from dried cells as described previously (ref 20). Glycogen content was determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) (LC Prominence, Shimadzu, Kyoto, Japan) using a size exclusion HPLC column (OHpak SB‐806M HQ Shodex, Tokyo, Japan) and a reflective index detector (RID‐10A Shimadzu) as previously described (ref 21)."
Comments P.467 right column 4th paragraph: "After nitrogen depletion, Synechocystis started to accumulate glycogen and the glycogen content reached 44% of dry‐cell weight after 72 h (primary source)."
