A polymer-producing strain of unicellular cyanobacteria, Synechococcus sp., was isolated from a coastal lagoon in Florida. This strain, designated BG0011, excreted a highly viscous polysaccharide. Maximum observed growth rates for BG0011 were 2.5 div. day-2. BG0011 also exhibited nitrogen fixation (nitrogenase) activity under aerobic conditions and grew at near maximum rates in medium lacking reduced nitrogen. Growth and carbohydrate production were enhanced by carbon dioxide enrichment… CONTINUE READING
