Pigment composition and its variation with culture agewere analyzed in six strains of Nannochloropsis(Eustigmatophyceae). The capacity for accumulationof the ketocarotenoids astaxanthin and canthaxanthinwas higher in N. salina and N. gaditanathan in the other strains studied here. Theinfluence of salinity (15 to 100 practical units) onpigment production was studied in N. gaditana,where a defined pattern of variation could not befound apart from a notable increase in zeaxanthin at100‰.

Development of a novel nannochloropsis strain with enhanced violaxanthin yield for large‐scale production
TLDR
Key transcriptomic responses that are seemingly associated with different physiological responses of M1 were elucidated under normal light condition, which would guide ongoing efforts to further maximize the industrial potential of violaxanthin producing strains.
Pigments from Eustigmatophyceae: an interesting class of microalgae for carotenoid production
Pigments are a fundamental part of the microalgal cell, with chlorophylls at the center of photosynthesis and carotenoids as accessory pigments. The characteristic pigment profile of the
Molecular and biochemical studies of astaxanthin biosynthesis in Haematococcus pluvialis
TLDR
expression of carotenoid biosynthetic genes revealed that they are up-regulated and maximum transcript levels of phytoene synthase, lycopene cyclase, and -carotene ketolase genes were found to be higher than that in green vegetative cells under stress conditions, which suggested a possible involvement of acetate in the posttranscriptional modifications of carOTenoid genes.
Optimum Production Conditions, Purification, Identification, and Antioxidant Activity of Violaxanthin from Microalga Eustigmatos cf. polyphem (Eustigmatophyceae)
TLDR
The results showed that this microalga vigorously grew and maintained a high level of violaxanthin in the fed-batch culture, and the highest violaxAnthin productivity was obtained under low light illumination with 18 mM of initial nitrogen supply for ten days.
Astaxanthin in microalgae Eustigmatophyceae
Abstract Astaxanthin is a red secondary carotenoid synthesized by some microalgae with a wide range of applications, namely, food, feed, and nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries, due to its
ANALYSIS OF EXPRESSED SEQUENCE TAGS FROM THE MARINE MICROALGA NANNOCHLOROPSIS OCULATA (EUSTIGMATOPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
A cDNA library was constructed using algal cells grown at exponential growth phase and analysis revealed that a large proportion of nonredundant sequences could be unique to this microalga.
Physiological responses of the eustigmatophycean
TLDR
According to the results, N. salina was significantly affected by the pollution with regard to the different physiological parameters examined, and this significance may be negative, positive or variable.
Physiological responses of the eustigmatophycean Nannochloropsis salina to aqueous diesel fuel pollution
The marine eustigmatophycean microalga Nannochloropsis (Monallantus) salina Hibberd was cultivated in a batch culture in the presence of various concentrations (0, 25, 50, 75 and 100%) of an aqueous
Vitamin E (α-tocopherol) production by the marine microalgae Nannochloropsis oculata (Eustigmatophyceae) in nitrogen limitation
TLDR
It was shown that decreasing N concentrations led to an increase in α-tocopherol accumulation, but reduced growth rate, which was found to be dependant on factors such as; N source, concentration and growth phase.

TLDR
The keto-carotenoids never achieved ageing-associated predominance in the total carotenoid mixture, where violaxanthin and vaucheriaxanthin ester persisted as the major xanthophylls.

Ultrastructure, pigment composition, and 18S rRNA gene sequence for Nannochloropsis granulata sp. nov. (Monodopsidaceae, Eustigmatophyceae), a marine ultraplankter isolated from the Skagerrak, northeast Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
A marine ultraplankter isolated from 17 m depth at a position north of Skagen, Denmark, in the Skagerrak, adjacent to the North Sea, had electron-dense bodies in the cytoplasm that did not resemble structures found in the other species.
Excess light-induced violaxanthin cycle activity in Nannochloropsis gaditana (Eustigmatophyceae): effects of exposure time and temperature
TLDR
Violaaxanthin cycle activity was clearly shown by changes in pigment content accompanied by a concurrent decrease in the epoxidation state (EPS), and the de-epoxidation rate was found to be slower than in other plant systems.
Variations du comportement physiologique de l'algue Monallantus salina (xanthophycée) en culture
TLDR
According to A.T.P., active proteins and amino acids estimates are the best indicators of metabolic cell activity for potential carbon production and may prove useful for the nutrition of various marine larvae in aquaculture experiments.
PHYSIOLOGICAL AND PHOTOSYNTHETIC CHANGES DURING THE FORMATION OF RED APLANOSPORES IN THE CHILOROPHYTE HAEMATOCOCCUS PLUVIALIS 1
TLDR
Measurements of photosynthetic unit “size” and estimation of the cellular content of photosystem II reaction centers suggest that the photosynthesis complex remains relatively centers stable during the formation process and in the mature aplanospore.
Use of response surface methodology to optimise carotenogenesis in the microalga, Haematococcus pluvialis
TLDR
RSM has been shown to be a rapid and effective technique leading to the optimisation of algal culture conditions and can be applied readily to the majority of microalgae and their products.

Summary1.Secondary carotenoids (SC) are defined as carotenoids synthesized by organisms or by parts of them at the end of the growth phase instead of or in addition to the primary carotenoids.2.The
PHOTOSYNTHETIC LIGHT‐HARVESTING FUNCTION OF VIOLAXANTHIN IN NANNOCHLOROPSIS SPP. (EUSTIGMATOPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
It is concluded that light absorption by violaxanthin, and possibly by vaucheriaxanthin is coupled in energy transfer to chlorophyll a and that violaxAnthin is the major light‐harvesting pigment in the Eustigmatophyceae.
