Treatment exposed to light Chlorella vulgaris Beijerinck (Chlorophyceae) with adenine- (BA, Kin, Z) and phenylurea-type (DPU) cytokinins effects positively on alga viability by 1.5- to twofold increase in cell number, chlorophylls, carotenoids, monosaccharides and glycolate content as well as NADH-dependent hydroxypyruvate reducing enzyme activity (NADH-HPR) extensively involved in carbon metabolism. Cytokinins enhance nitrogen assimilation by stimulation of NADH-dependent glutamate… CONTINUE READING
