Although akinetes ofNostoc PCC 7524 lost little of their main photosynthetic pigments, phycocyanin and chlorophyll, with increasing age after the onset of sporulation, they lost at least 90% of their photosynthetic and respiratory capacities. Germination needed the supply of light throughout the process, though previous dark metabolism accelerated the following light process. In standard conditions, both respiratory and photosynthetic capacities increased markedly during the first 9–10 h, a… CONTINUE READING
