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. Expand
Enhanced Photosynthesis and Redox Energy Production Contribute to Salinity Tolerance in Dunaliella as Revealed by Homology-Based Proteomics1
The results indicate that Dunaliella responds to high salinity by enhancement of photosynthetic CO2 assimilation and by diversion of carbon and energy resources for synthesis of glycerol, the osmotic element in DunAliella. Expand
Salt-induced Changes in the Plasma Membrane Proteome of the Halotolerant Alga Dunaliella salina as Revealed by Blue Native Gel Electrophoresis and Nano-LC-MS/MS Analysis*S
The migration profiles of native protein complexes on blue native gels revealed oligomerization or co-migration of major surface-exposed proteins, which may indicate mechanisms of stabilization at high salinity. Expand
A Salt-resistant Plasma Membrane Carbonic Anhydrase Is Induced by Salt in Dunaliella salina*
The mechanisms allowing proliferation of the unicellular green alga Dunaliella salina in up to saturating NaCl concentrations are only partially understood at present. Previously, the level of aExpand
Characterization of major lipid droplet proteins from Dunaliella
The isolation of MLDP from three species of the extreme halotolerant green algae Dunaliella identified a conserved 4-proline domain that may be considered as a signature domain of Volvocales green algae MLDP. Expand

It is suggested that water molecules have to crystallize on the charged phospholipid interface during the rapid freezing in order to allow the fusion process to take place and to give a few examples of ionophore-mediated ion transport reactions which give rise to accumulation of protons and Ca ions inside the lipsomes.

Are active oxygen species involved in induction of β-carotene in Dunaliella bardawil?
It is suggested that photosynthetically produced oxygen radicals are involved in triggering massive β-carotene accumulation in D. bardawil. Expand
Iron Uptake by the Halotolerant Alga Dunaliella Is Mediated by a Plasma Membrane Transferrin*
The results indicate that transferrins, hitherto identified only in animals, are present and function in iron transport also in plant systems. Expand
Proteome Analysis of Cytoplasmatic and Plastidic β-Carotene Lipid Droplets in Dunaliella bardawil1[OPEN]
Proteome analysis of two types of lipid droplets in Dunaliella bardawil uncovers enzymes involved in β-carotene biosynthesis and lipid droplet biogenesis and hypothesize that βC-plastoglobuli evolved from eyespot lipid Droplets. Expand
Isolation of a Novel Oil Globule Protein from the Green Alga Haematococcus pluvialis (Chlorophyceae)
HOGP is the first oil-globule-associated protein to be identified in H. pluvialis, and it is a member of a novel gene family that may be unique to green microalgae. Expand
