Temperature stress-induced bleaching of the coralline alga Corallina officinalis: a role for the enzyme bromoperoxidase

Abstract

Coralline algae are important components of coral reefs and are involved in reef building via calcification, cementation, the synthesis of anti-fouling compounds and the synthesis of allochemicals to aid recruitment, settling and metamorphosis of reefs species. Using Corallina officinalis we have shown that these algae undergo temperature-related bleaching… (More)
