To better understand the role of caspase-like proteins in the cellular activities of harmful dinoflagellates, cultures of Karenia brevis and Karenia mikimotoi were monitored over a 56-day period. The cellular abundance, maximum photochemical efficiency of photosystem II (Fv/Fm), percentage of dead cells (revealed by SYTOX-labelling of nuclei of cells with a compromised membrane) and the variation in caspase 3-like protein activity were monitored every 7 days. During the cultures’ late decline… CONTINUE READING
