The marine chlorophyte Dunaliella tertiolecta was grown in continuous cultures under NH(4)-N, NO(2)-N, NO(3)-N, and urea-N limitations. The effect of the nitrogen cell quota (Q(n)) on the steady-state growth rate (mu) was the same regardless of the N source. The relationship between mu and Q(n) was well described by the Droop equation, but only up to the true maximum growth rate ;mu (= cell washout rate). The ratio between the minimum cell quota (k(Q)) and the maximum cell quota (Q(m)) was 0.19… CONTINUE READING
