The expression of mRNAs coding for 1-deoxyxylulose-5-phosphate synthase (DXS) and phytoene synthase (PSY) were studied in Dunaliella salina grown under nitrogen-sufficient (NS) and nitrogen-limited (NL) conditions. Under NS conditions growth was 2.5 times higher than under NL conditions. No differences were found in chlorophyll a content per cell, and total carotenoid content per cell was 5.33 pg 1−1 for the NS treatment and 7.76 pg 1−1 for the NL. DXS transcripts exhibited diminished… CONTINUE READING
