We report on the effects of high light irradiance (480 μmol quanta/(m2·s)) and salinity (160 and 200 g/liter NaCl) on culture growth as well as on cell lipid pigment and fatty acid (FA) composition in three novel strains of halophile microalga from the genus Dunaliella. Based on the ITS1–5.8S rRNA–ITS2 sequence and on the capability of accumulation of secondary (uncoupled from the photosynthetic apparatus) β-carotene, the strains Dunaliella sp. BS1 and BS2 were identified as D. salina and… 
Diversity of carotenogenic microalgae in the White Sea polar region.
TLDR
Most likely, carotenogenic algae in the White Sea coast are abundant due to their high physiological and metabolic plasticity, which is essential for surviving under adverse conditions of the northern regions.
Comparative Analysis of Culture Conditions for the Optimization of Carotenoid Production in Several Strains of the Picoeukaryote Ostreococcus
TLDR
This work compares the carotenoid contents and growth rates of strains of Ostreococcus under a wide range of light, salinity and temperature conditions and illustrates that phylogenetically related microalgal strains originating from different ecological niches present specific interests for the production of specific molecules under controlled culture conditions.
Modeling the Dynamics of Pigment Content in Cells of Dunaliella Salina Teod. Unicellular Alga at the Stage of Carotenogenesis
The work is focused on modeling of chlorophyll and carotenoids content dynamics in the in cells of the unicellular algae D. salina, living in salt water, at carotenogenesis induction phase. A
Carotenogenic response in photosynthetic organisms: a colorful story
TLDR
Current functional, mechanistic, and ecological insights into the CR in a broad range of organisms suggest that it is obviously more widespread and important stress response than it is currently thought to be.
Production Characteristics of Dunaliella salina at Two-phase Pilot Cultivation (Crimea)
TLDR
Crimea is a prospective region for D. salina algobiotechnology because it enables production of 3 g of carotenoids from 1 m2 (100 l) of starter culture, and optimal duration was found to be 10-12 days for the studied weather conditions.
Diversity of Prokaryotes in Planktonic Communities of Saline Sol-Iletsk lakes (Orenburg Oblast, Russia)
TLDR
Effect of salinity on prokaryotic taxonomic richness, composition, and diversity in planktonic communities of the studied lakes was demonstrated.
Algae-induced taste and odour problems at low temperatures and the cold stress response hypothesis.
TLDR
It was found that, for cold algae, low temperature may have a favourable effect on the generation of algae-induced T&O compounds, and the stress response theory is introduced, which provides ideas for T &O control in raw water and in water treatment.
АПРОБАЦИЯ ДВУХСТАДИЙНОГО КУЛЬТИВИРОВАНИЯ DUNALIELLA SALINA (TEODORESCO, 1905) В СЕВАСТОПОЛЬСКОМ РЕГИОНЕ
Aim . In this work, we set out to study the effect of surface irradiance on the growth rate and the pigment ratio of D. salina, as well as to test a technology for semi‐industrial cultiva‐ tion of D.

Physiology and adaptive significance of secondary carotenogenesis in green microalgae
TLDR
This review summarizes recent experimental data on the importance of secondary carotenogenesis for stress tolerance of unicellular green algae (Chlorophyta) and particular attention is given to the relationships between SCar biosynthesis and stress-induced biosynthesis of neutral lipids as well as the role of ROS as universal inducers and regulators of SCan biosynthesis.
Characterization of a novel Dunaliella salina (Chlorophyta) strain and the assessment of its cultivation parameters
Physiological characteristics of a novel strain of the halophilic alga Dunaliella salina IPPAS D-232 isolated from the hypersaline lake Razval (Sol-Iletsk, Orenburg region) were studied. It was shown
Physiological role of neutral lipid accumulation in eukaryotic microalgae under stresses
TLDR
A review of experimental data obtained so far allowing to distinguish at least three aspects of TAG adaptive function in microalgae shows that TAG biosynthesis consumes excessive photoassimilates preventing photooxidative injuries under stresses which reduce cell capacity of photosynthesis product utilization.
Stereoisomers of β-Carotene and Phytoene in the Alga Dunaliella bardawil
TLDR
The data suggest that the isomerization reaction which leads to the production of the 9-cis isomer occurs early in the path of carotene biosynthesis, at or before the formation of all-trans phytoene.
Carotenoid and fatty acid metabolism in light‐stressed Dunaliella salina
TLDR
The results indicate that cellular β‐carotene accumulation in D. salina correlates with accumulation of specific fatty acid species (C16:0 and C18:1) rather than with total fatty acid content.
ACCUMULATION OF β‐CAROTENE IN HALOTOLERANT ALGE: PURIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF β‐CAROTENE‐RICH GLOBULES FROM DUNALIELLA BARDAWIL (CHLOROPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
It is suggested that the β‐carotene globules may serve to protect D. bardawil against injury by the high intensity irradiation to which this alga is usually exposed in nature.
Induced beta-carotene synthesis driven by triacylglycerol deposition in the unicellular alga dunaliella bardawil
TLDR
It is concluded that under normal conditions the carotenogenic pathway is not maximally active and may be appreciably stimulated in the presence of sequestering structures, creating a plastid-localized sink for the end product of theCarotenoid biosynthetic pathway.
Similarity and diversity of the Desmodesmus spp. microalgae isolated from associations with White Sea invertebrates
Similarity and diversity of the phenotype and nucleotide sequences of certain genome loci among the single-celled microalgae isolated from White Sea benthic invertebrates were studied to extend the
PHOTOADAPTATION AND THE “PACKAGE” EFFECT IN DUNALIELLA TERTIOLECTA (CHLOROPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
Thylakoid membrane protein/lipid ratios change during photoadaptation, and these changes influence the effective rate of light harvesting per unit chlorophyll a, and the results suggest that thylakoids stacking and the transparency of thylAKoid membranes were important factors.
