Rhodopseudomonas capsulata was grown under anaerobic, photosynthetic conditions in a continuous culture device. Under light limitation, at a constant dilution rate, it was shown that cell composition, including photopigment (bacteriochlorophyll and carotenoids) and ribonucleic acid content, was not affected by incident light intensity; however, steady state culture density varied directly and linearly with light intensity. On the other hand, photopigment and ribonucleic acid levels were… CONTINUE READING
