Dissolved free amino acids (DFAA) form a significant proportion of dissolved fixed nitrogen in marine waters and could provide an additional source of nitrogen for the growth of marine microalgae. With the advent of DFAA analysis by HPLC, recent studies of algal physiology, and an increased awareness of potential experimental errors, doubts are cast over the conclusion that marine microalgae are not net users of DFAA. Results obtained by testing the use of a few amino acids cannot be… CONTINUE READING
