Axenic plantlets derived from three species of marine macroalgae, the temperate green alga Acrosiphonia coalita, the temperate red alga Porphyra yezoensis, and the tropical red alga Portieria hornemannii, all possessed a similar metabolic route to remove the explosive compound 2,4,6-trinitrotolune (TNT) from seawater. At a biomass density of 1.2 g l(-1) and(More)
Microplantlets of the marine red macroalga Portieria hornemannii efficiently removed the explosive compound 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) from seawater. Photosynthetic, axenic microplantlets (1.2 g FW/L) were challenged with enriched seawater medium containing dissolved TNT at concentrations of 1.0, 10, and 50 mg/L. At 22 degrees C and initial TNT(More)
