Accumulation of secondary carotenoids in flagellates of Haematococcus pluvialis (Chlorophyta) is accompanied by an increase in per unit chlorophyll productivity of photosynthesis

Abstract:

Flagellates of Haematococcus pluvialis accumulate secondary carotenoids (mainly astaxanthin and its esters) under nitrogen deficiency in combination with exposure to stronger light. Our cultivation scheme allows the characterization of metabolic activities during the accumulation process without interference by formation of the resting state (aplanospores). The highest rate of secondary carotenoid biosynthesis (0.046 h-1) was observed almost simultaneously with the highest rates of cell divis...
