The contents of lipids and pigments were compared in juvenile and adult algae Costaria costata [Turn.] Saund (Laminariaceae) collected in April. The total content of lipids and that of particular lipid classes increased markedly with age. In adult algae, the contents of total lipids, glyceroglycolipids, and neutral lipids doubled as compared with juvenile algae and was equal to 5.70, 1.78, and 0.81 mg/g fr wt, respectively. The content of free sterols increased with age by three times; it was… CONTINUE READING
