Photosynthetic characteristics of Dunaliella salina with high (red form) and low β-carotene (green form) concentrations were studied. D. salina growing in brine saltworks exhibited a high level of β-carotene (15 pg cell−1). The rate of oxygen evolution as a function of irradiance was higher in the red than in the green form (on chlorophyll basis). Photosynthetic inhibition of the green form was observed above 500 µmol m−2 s−1. The red form appeared more resistant to high irradiance and no… CONTINUE READING
