The green alga Haematococcus pluvialis is able to produce and accumulate large amounts of astaxanthin under stress conditions, but not every strain has such a capability. At present, there is little information on how strains differ for astaxanthin production. In this study, three Australian strains of H. pluvialis (New South Wales (NSW), South Australia (SA) and Queensland (QLD)) were cultured and exposed to 0.17 M NaCl for 10 days, to compare their molecular profiles for astaxanthin… CONTINUE READING
