Dunaliella parva, a green halophilic alga, was found to accumulate very large amounts of intracellular glycerol. Through measurements of the intracellular volume the internal concentration of glycerol was calculated and found to be around 2.1 m in cells cultured in 1.5 m NaCl. When the extracellular salt concentration of an algal suspension was increased or decreased, the intracellular glycerol varied accordingly, reaching its new osmotic equilibrium after about 90 minutes. Since no leakage of… Expand
