The effect of different light qualities (white, blue, green, yellow and red light) on photosynthesis, measured as chlorophyll fluorescence, and the accumulation of photosynthetic pigments, proteins and the UV-absorbing mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs) was studied in the red alga Porphyra leucosticta. Blue light promoted the highest accumulation of nitrogen metabolism derived compounds i.e., MAAs, phycoerythrin and proteins in previously N-starved algae after seven days culture in ammonium… Expand

TLDR
The results showed that the photosynthetic performance of P. cruentum was severely impacted by nitrogen deficiency, leading to the inactivation of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) and decreased light energy conversion efficiency. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that not only MAA accumulation but also N availability is very important to determine the photoprotective capacity against UVR of Heterocapsa sp. Expand

Availability of ammonium influences photosynthesis and the accumulation of mycosporine-like amino acids in two Porphyra species (Bangiales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
Ammonium supply diminished the decrease of Fv/Fm, increased the content of photosynthetic pigments and soluble protein, and stimulated of the accumulation of MAAs in the red algae P. leucosticta and P. umbilicalis. Expand

BLUE LIGHT AND UV‐A RADIATION CONTROL THE SYNTHESIS OF MYCOSPORINE‐LIKE AMINO ACIDS IN CHONDRUS CRISPUS (FLORIDEOPHYCEAE)
TLDR
It is hypothesized that there are two photoreceptors for MAA synthesis in C. crispus, one for blue light and one for UV‐A, which can act synergistically, and this system would predispose C. crispyus to efficiently synthesize UV protective compounds when radiation levels are rising, for example, on a seasonal basis.

Photoregulation of Nitrogen Metabolism and Protein Accumulation in the Red Alga Corallina elongata Ellis et Soland
TLDR
The photostimulation of nitrogen metabolism was correlated with light-regulated accumulation of soluble proteins and the blue-light effect seems to be mediated by a specific B-light photoreceptor besides phytochrome due to the different time course of the response and the extent of the stimulation after blue compared to red light pulses.

Ultrastructure of the vegetative gametophytic cells of Porphyra leucosticta (Rhodophyta) grown in red, blue and green light
TLDR
The monochromatic light (blue, red and green) brings about marked changes in the package effect and consequently in the efficiency of light absorption, which contributes to the intense production of chlorophyll a, phycoerythrin,phycocyanin and soluble proteins, while intenseproduction of polysaccharidic material is attributed to red light.

TLDR
Photoinhibition (as a decrease of optimal quantum yield) was significantly greater under nitrogen‐deprived conditions than that under replete ammonium levels, and positive relationships between maximal GP or ETR and pigment ratios (BP and MAAs/chl a) and negative relationships with chl a concentration were found.
