Acidophilic Green Alga Pseudochlorella sp. YKT1 Accumulates High Amount of Lipid Droplets under a Nitrogen-Depleted Condition at a Low-pH
Results show that acidophilic green algae will be useful for industrial applications by acidic open culture systems by isolated from sulfuric acid mine drainage in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. Expand
Identification of 13 Spirogyra species (Zygnemataceae) by traits of sexual reproduction induced under laboratory culture conditions
An improved methodology for inducing sexual conjugation in laboratory-cultivated filaments was developed and demonstrated that the two Temnogyra species are included in a large clade comprising many species of Spirogyra. Expand
Acidophilic green algal genome provides insights into adaptation to an acidic environment
The results suggest that higher expression of heat-shock proteins and H+-ATPase, loss of some metabolic pathways that acidify cytosol, and acquisition of metal-detoxifying genes by horizontal gene transfer have played important roles in the adaptation to acidic environments. Expand
Occurrence of the endangered species Nitellopsis obtusa (Charales, Charophyceae) in western Japan and the genetic differences within and among Japanese populations
The DNA sequences of three chloroplast DNA markers were identical in all specimens from Lake Kawaguchi and Lake Nojiri (Central Honshu) and differed from those of Lake Biwa and German specimens, and Japanese specimens displayed considerable genetic diversity according to locality. Expand
Morphology and phylogenetic position of a mat-forming green plant from acidic rivers in Japan
Phylogenetic analyses based on rbcL gene sequences strongly indicate that Misuzugoke is positioned within the Haplolepideae, and this mat-forming green plant is considered to be a reduced form of moss in the HaPlolepidae. Expand
