Transcriptome-based analysis on carbon metabolism of Haematococcus pluvialis mutant under 15% CO2.

To elucidate the mechanism underlying the enhanced growth rate in the Haematococcus pluvialis mutated with 60Co-γ rays and domesticated with 15% CO2, transcriptome sequencing was conducted to clarify the carbon metabolic pathways of mutant cells. The CO2 fixation rate of mutant cells increased to 2.57gL-1d-1 under 15% CO2 due to the enhanced photosynthesis… CONTINUE READING
