Photographs were taken 14 days after the inoculation.
The major problem in open pond systems is that the culture is easily contaminated by undesirable microorganisms, including algal predators. Heterotrophic growth of two strains of the acido-thermophilic red alga, Galdieria sulphuraria.
KEGG GENOME: Galdieria sulphuraria
Biology portal Molecular and cellular biology portal. YKT1, which were comparable to those in an autotrophic synthetic medium. Five hundred microliter of the neutralized water sample were transferred into a 1.
International Journal of Biological Macromolecules. Two natural acidic water samples from Tamagawa Ta; pH 1. In this study, the phycocyanin contents in G. Thus, the fact of being rich in phosphate is a strong advantage of sulfuric hot spring water for algal cultivation.
Biotechnology and Bioengineering 90 It is also capable of neutralizing biohazardous metals in some instances . Single mitochondrion in acidic hot-spring alga: For cultivation of P. The chlorophyll and phycocyanin contents were determined by spectrophotometric method according to Misumi et al.
Conceived and designed the experiments: In the spring water media with an additional nitrogen source, P. YKT1 grow well when the spring water is supplemented with an inorganic nitrogen source. Journal of Phycology 53 3: The earliest description of an organism corresponding to the modern G.
This is because metals are easily ionized and dissolved in acidic water. Journal of Phycology Cells cultured in the synthetic MA medium OD of 1.
Brucine method for determination of nitrate in ocean, estuarine, and fresh waters. To maintain internal pH, G.
D—F The change in the OD of the culture in the respective media. Thus, the combination of acidophilic algae in acidic natural wastewater will be one strategy applied to open pond culture systems for commercial use or bioremediation in the future.

Microalgae – commercial potential for fuel, food and feed. However, large-scale cultivation of microalgae for commercial use is still costly, so has remained limited to the production of relatively expensive materials. More information and statistics. Views Read Edit View history. Significance was calculated by t -test. It is the type species of the genus Galdieria.
Microbial community composition and ecology of an acidic aquatic environment: First, we prepared Ta and Tsu water as they were prepared above, i. YKT1 Trebouxiophyceae was recently isolated from the acidic drainage of an abandoned sulfur mine in Japan Hirooka et al.
