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.
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.
The biotechnology of cultivating the halotolerant algaDunaliella
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.
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.
A SENSITIVE AND SIMPLE METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF FERROCYANIDE.
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.

Stereoisomers of β-Carotene and Phytoene in the Alga Dunaliella bardawil
The data suggest that the isomerization reaction which leads to the production of the 9-cis isomer occurs early in the path of carotene biosynthesis, at or before the formation of all-trans phytoene.
