    Laminarin Quantification in Microalgae with Enzymes from Marine Microbes
    Authors:  Stefan Becker and Jan-Hendrik Hehemann, date: 04/20/2018, view: 5876, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The marine beta-glucan laminarin is an abundant storage polysaccharide in microalgae. High production rates and rapid digestion by heterotrophic bacteria turn laminarin into an ideal carbon and energy source, and it is therefore a key player in the marine carbon cycle. As a main storage glucan laminarin also plays a central role in the energy ...
    Rubisco Extraction and Purification from Diatoms
    [Abstract] This protocol describes a method to extract ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase oxygenase (Rubisco) from diatoms (Bacillariophyta) to determine catalytic performance. This protocol has been adapted from use in cyanobacteria and higher plants (Andrews, 1988; Whitney and Sharwood, 2007). First part (steps A1-A3) of the extraction provides ...
