Induction, Isolation and Counting of Akinetes in Aphanizomenon ovalisporum
Authors:  Assaf Sukenik, Ruth N. Kaplan-Levi, Yehudit Viner-Mozzini, Achsa Lupu and Dotan Sela, date: 05/20/2016, view: 3608, Q&A: 0
Akinetes are spore-like resting (dormant) cells formed by strains of filamentous cyanobacteria for surviving long periods of unfavorable conditions. During deprivation for potassium, vegetative photosynthetic cells along the filaments of the ...
