CHEMICAL PROFILE OF SELECTED SPECIES OF MICROALGAE WITH EMPHASIS ON LIPIDS 1
The low production of hydrocarbon fractions in nitrogen deficient Botryococcus braunii Kutz and Dunaliella salina Thomas cannot support the notion that microalgae can be utilized as biosolar energy converters for the production of liquid fuel, but point to the availability of a variety of neutral and polar lipid products.

Economic analysis is an essential evaluation for considering feasibility and viability of large-scale, photoautotrophic algae-based, biofuel production. Thus far, economic analysis has been conducted… Expand
On the Factors Which Determine Massive beta-Carotene Accumulation in the Halotolerant Alga Dunaliella bardawil.
The results are interpreted as indicating a protecting effect of beta-carotene against injury by high irradiance under conditions of impairment in chlorophyll content per cell. Expand
The biotechnology of cultivating the halotolerant algaDunaliella
The unicellular alga Dunaliella thrives in media with very high salt concentrations, accumulating large amounts of commercially important chemicals such as β-carotene and glycerol, and may be of use as a pharmaceutical product. Expand
ACCUMULATION OF β‐CAROTENE IN HALOTOLERANT ALGE: PURIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF β‐CAROTENE‐RICH GLOBULES FROM DUNALIELLA BARDAWIL (CHLOROPHYCEAE) 1
It is suggested that the β‐carotene globules may serve to protect D. bardawil against injury by the high intensity irradiation to which this alga is usually exposed in nature. Expand
The Role of Glycerol in the Osmotic Regulation of the Halophilic Alga Dunaliella parva.
The above results indicate the existence of a new type of algal osmoregulation, in which the osmotic balance depends on the synthesis or degradation of intracellular glycerol in response to the external salt concentration. Expand
Analysis of carotenoids with emphasis on 9-cis β-carotene in vegetables and fruits commonly consumed in Israel
The high content of 9- cis β-carotene in certain fruits and vegetables and the wide variety of carotenoids and stereoisomers of carOTenoids in all plants should shift nutritional and medical attention toward natural carotENoids as potential candidates for chemoprevention. Expand
Dunaliella: Physiology, Biochemistry, and Biotechnology
Morphology and Taxonomy (H.R. Preisig). Flagellar Apparatus, Cell Motility, and Phototaxis (F. Marano). Photosynthesis: Biochemical and Physiological Adaptation (K. Aizawa and S. Miyachi). ATPases… Expand
Mode of Action of the Massively Accumulated beta-Carotene of Dunaliella bardawil in Protecting the Alga against Damage by Excess Irradiation.
Observations suggest that the massively accumulated beta-carotene in D. bardawil protects the alga against damage by high irradiation by screening through absorption of the blue region of the spectrum. Expand
New mode of Dunaliella biotechnology: two-phase growth for β-carotene production
- A. Ben-Amotz
- Journal of Applied Phycology
- 1 February 1995
The results indicate that a selected algal product can be promoted specifically by growth manipulation of the alga and its environment. Expand
