The response of the marine diatom Phaeodactylum ,tricornutum to Fe deficiency was evaluated in the context of fundamental physiological models of growth and photosynthesis. Fe deficiency induced chlorosis, which decreased Chl a : C ratios and Chl a-specific light-saturated photosynthesis (P, "). In contrast to Pme, (Ye was slightly increased under Fe… (More)
Embryonic limb-bud mesenchyme was induced to calcify in culture by the addition of 3 mM inorganic phosphate to the medium. Phosphate enhanced calcification of the matrix produced by mesenchymal or fibroblast-like cells, whereas no calcification was evident in areas where cartilage had developed. However, calcification was induced throughout the cell layer… (More)
