An investigation of the cellular response of the freshwater microalga Chlorella zofingiensis to exogenous selenium showed that Chlorella cells can tolerate sodium selenite up to a concentration of 100 mg l−1. Cells grown in such a selenium-supplemented medium accumulated boiling-stable proteins in a concentration-dependant manner. Western blot analysis revealed that three of these boiling-stable proteins cross-reacted with anti-dehydrin antibody. Selenium was also found to exert an effect on… CONTINUE READING
