The cell carbohydrate content of cyanobacteria can alter buoyancy, and the ability to regulate the buoyancy is one of the most important mechanisms of cyanobacterial blooms. The net accumulation of carbohydrate in cell is affected by photosynthesis, respiration, synthesis of proteins, and other metabolisms, which are connected to the growth. The aim of this work is to seek the relationship between growth rate and intracellular carbohydrate content. The cell carbohydrate content in Microcystis… CONTINUE READING
