Determination of Ion Content and Ion Fluxes in the Halotolerant Alga Dunaliella salina.
The results suggest that Dunaliella cells possess efficient mechanisms to eliminate Na(+ and accumulate K(+) and that intracellular Na(+)-K(+) concentrations are carefully regulated. 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

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
A SENSITIVE AND SIMPLE METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF FERROCYANIDE.
Abstract A simple assay for ferrocyanide is described which is sensitive down to 0.001 μmole. The method is suitable for a direct assay of ferrocyanide, in the presence of ferricyanide, in… Expand
Photophosphorylation by swiss-chard chloroplasts.

- Biochimica et biophysica acta
Confirmation was presented for the ineffectiveness of 2,4-dinitrophenol and effectiveness of ammonium ions as uncoupling agents, and the lack of exchange between inorganic phosphate and ATP in swiss-chard chloroplasts. Expand
Accumulation of metabolites by halotolerant algae and its industrial potential.
An attempt is made to evaluate the phytochemical properties of phosphorous and its application in agriculture, as well as the potential uses for other materials, such as fertilizer and pesticides. Expand
