BACKGROUND Chlorella is one of the few microalgae employed for human consumption. It typically has a high protein content, but it can also accumulate high amounts of lipids or carbohydrates under stress conditions and, for this reason, it is of interest in the production of biofuels. High production costs and energy consumption are associated with its(More)
Interactions between algae and associated bacterial communities in the phycosphere depend on many factors such as culture age, nutrient availability, and antibiotic production and greatly influence algal survival and growth. The microbial community associated with the marine microalga Tetraselmis suecica F&M-M33 in a laboratory culture and an outdoor mass(More)
The general objective of the present work was to evaluate the toxicity of 11 microalgal strains and one natural bloom, selected as potential food or food ingredients due to their nutritional quality, in two models, human dermal fibroblasts and Artemia salina. Methanolic and aqueous extracts of the biomasses were tested on A. salina for 24 and 48 h at(More)
