Enhancement of marennine production by blue light in the diatom Haslea ostrearia
The marine diatom Haslea ostrearia Simonsen produces a blue pigment, marennine, which is used for greening oysters. This microalga is cultured industrially indoors with artificial light. TheExpand

Combined effects of irradiance level and carbon source on fatty acid and lipid class composition in the microalga Pavlova lutheri commonly used in mariculture
Abstract Pavlova lutheri, a marine Pavlovophyceae, has been well documented as it is commonly used as a food source in mariculture. In this study, we investigated the combined effects of carbonExpand

Effect of UV stress on the fatty acid and lipid class composition in two marine microalgae Pavlova lutheri (Pavlovophyceae) and Odontella aurita (Bacillariophyceae)
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), especially eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids (EPA and DHA), are abundantly synthesized by some phytoplankton species and play a key role in the marineExpand

Long-term photoacclimation of Haslea ostrearia (Bacillariophyta): effect of irradiance on growth rates, pigment content and photosynthesis
Haslea ostrearia, the peculiar diatom that develops in oyster-ponds and synthesizes a water-soluble blue pigment (marennine), was grown in a semi-continuous mode over a wide range of irradiancesExpand

Acclimation of Haslea ostrearia to light of different spectral qualities - confirmation of 'chromatic adaptation' in diatoms.
The marine diatom Haslea ostrearia was cultured under light of different qualities, white (WL), blue (BL), green (GL), yellow (YL), red (RL), and far-red (FRL) and at two irradiance levels, low andExpand

The role of Odontella aurita, a marine diatom rich in EPA, as a dietary supplement in dyslipidemia, platelet function and oxidative stress in high-fat fed rats
BackgroundDietary changes are a major factor in determining cardiovascular risk. n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids modulate the risk factors for metabolic syndrome via multiple mechanisms, includingExpand

Comparison between fluorimetry and oximetry techniques to measure photosynthesis in the diatom Skeletonema costatum cultivated under simulated seasonal conditions.
This study reports comparison of two techniques measuring photosynthesis in the ubiquitous diatom Skeletonema costatum, i.e., the classical oximetry and the recent modulated fluorimetry. MicroalgaeExpand

Osmotic adjustment, gas exchanges and chlorophyll fluorescence of a hexaploid triticale and its parental species under salt stress.
The effect of salt stress (NaCl 85.7 or 110 mmol/L) was investigated in the triticale T300 and its parental species, Triticum dicoccum farrum (Triticum df) and Secale cereale cv. Petkus. Triticum dfExpand

IN-VIVO FLUORESCENCE MEASUREMENT OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS OF HASLEA OSTREARIA SIMONSEN IN RELATION TO MARENNINE CONTENT
Isolates of Haslea ostrearia containing different amounts of marennine have been investigated to elucidate the physiological role of this enigmatic blue pigment. Fluorescence analyses at roomExpand

Light-dependent utilization of two radiolabelled carbon sources, sodium bicarbonate and sodium acetate, and relationships with long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid synthesis in the microalga Pavlova
Pavlova lutheri is a common member of the Pavlovophyceae (Haptophyta), often used as a food source for aquatic filter-feeders and cultured in laboratories to produce high levels of polyunsaturatedExpand
