Effects of different levels of CO2 on photosynthesis and cell components of the red alga Porphyra leucosticta

Photosynthesis and cell composition of Porphyraleucosticta discs grown at low (< 0.0001% in air), current (control) and high (1% CO2 in air)inorganic carbon (Ci) concentrations were analyzed. Carbohydrate content in discs grown at high Ci increased (15.1 mg g-1 FW) with respect to the control (6.4 mg g FW-1), whereas soluble protein content decreased to one… CONTINUE READING
