Compounds of the trace element vanadium have been shown to mimic insulin effects in in vitro and in vivo systems. Vanadium compounds have emerged as agents for potential use in diabetes therapy. In our work we show the possibility of obtaining enriched biomass of cyanobacteria genus Spirulina (S. platensis and S. maxima) with vanadium in organic form. We(More)
The salt tolerance of two representatives of genus Spirulina (Arthrospira) Spirulina platensis and Spirulina maxima has been investigated. They both are the wide-spread objects of photobiotechnology and it has been shown that the content of 5–15 % sea-water in medium has not caused the decreasing of biomass yield more than 15–20% as compared with control.(More)
A new methodology of biological treatment and conversion of farm waste (manure and wash water) with the use of intensively cultivated phototrophic microorganisms (microalgae) is reviewed. Criteria for selection of microalgae and peculiarities of their intensive cultivation for efficient removal of biogenic elements from and destruction of the organic(More)
Here we present a brief account of current data on immobilization of oxygenic phototrophic microorganisms—cyanobacteria and eukaryotic microalgae—in natural and artificial experimental systems. We emphasize that immobilization e.g. in biofilms is a basic, widespread in nature strategy ensuring the survival of microorganisms. Accordingly, the artificially(More)
Immobilization of phototrophic microogranisms: microalgae (MA) and cyanobacteria (CB) on polyethylenimine (PEI)-based sorbents was studied. For this purpose, 3 insoluble porous polymeric materials were synthesized by cross-linking of PEI with epichlorohydrine and immobilization of PEI on the surface of styrene–divinylbenzene copolymer. The sorbent on the(More)
Presently, synthetical sorbents such as polymeric fibrous nonwoven materials have been widely used for gathering oil and oil products. The systems combining these materials and association of oil-destructing bacteria can be used to obtain effective polyfunctional bio-hybrid materials for gathering oil and oil products. The study of interaction peculiarities(More)
