Dunalliella salina (Teodoresco) is a unicellular, wall-less, halotolerant green alga. Previous work has shown that levels of inositol phospholipiils in whole cells of D. salina fluctuate in response to hyper- and hypo-osmotic shock. In this paper, we report the effects of changes in the light environment on levels of phospholipids, including inositol phospholipids, in D. scilina. Utilizing both short-term and long-term labeling of phospholipids with 32PO4, we were able to compare both immediate… CONTINUE READING
