Comparison of several methods for effective lipid extraction from microalgae.
Various methods, including autoclaving, bead-beating, microwaves, sonication, and a 10% NaCl solution, were tested to identify the most effective cell disruption method. The total lipids fromExpand
Selection of microalgae for lipid production under high levels carbon dioxide.
To select microalgae with a high biomass and lipid productivity, Botryococcus braunii, Chlorella vulgaris, and Scenedesmus sp. were cultivated with ambient air containing 10% CO(2) and flue gas. TheExpand
Rapid method for the determination of lipid from the green alga Botryococcus braunii
Of various methods for lipid recovery in Botryococcus braunii UTEX 572, the most effective method was disruption of the cells with a bead-beater followed by extraction with chloroform/methanol (2:1,Expand
Microcystin Production by Microcystis aeruginosa in a Phosphorus-Limited Chemostat
ABSTRACT The production of microcystins (MC) from Microcystis aeruginosa UTEX 2388 was investigated in a P-limited continuous culture. MC (MC-LR, MC-RR, and MC-YR) from lyophilized M. aeruginosa wereExpand
Algae-bacteria interactions: Evolution, ecology and emerging applications.
Algae and bacteria have coexisted ever since the early stages of evolution. This coevolution has revolutionized life on earth in many aspects. Algae and bacteria together influence ecosystems asExpand
Harvest of Scenedesmus sp. with bioflocculant and reuse of culture medium for subsequent high-density cultures.
The optimal flocculating conditions for harvesting high-density cultures of Scenedesmus sp. were investigated using inorganic coagulants and the bioflocculant produced by Paenibacillus polymyxa AM49.Expand
Production and properties of a lipopeptide biosurfactant from Bacillus subtilis C9
Abstract A lipopeptide biosurfactant, C9-BS produced by Bacillus (B.) subtilis C9, emulsified hydrocarbons, vegetable oil and crude oil. A high yield of C9-BS was obtained from a culture of B.Expand
Harvesting of Chlorella vulgaris using a bioflocculant from Paenibacillus sp. AM49
Microbial flocculants for harvesting mass cultured Chlorella vulgaris were screened and that from Paenibacillussp. AM49 was identified as the best. The flocculation efficiency of this bioflocculantExpand
Amplification of Uncultured Single-Stranded DNA Viruses from Rice Paddy Soil
ABSTRACT Viruses are known to be the most numerous biological entities in soil; however, little is known about their diversity in this environment. In order to explore the genetic diversity of soilExpand
CRISPR/Cas9-induced knockout and knock-in mutations in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Genome editing is crucial for genetic engineering of organisms for improved traits, particularly in microalgae due to the urgent necessity for the next generation biofuel production. The mostExpand
