Determination of Storage (Starch/Glycogen) and Total Saccharides Content in Algae and Cyanobacteria by a Phenol-Sulfuric Acid Method
Authors:  Tomáš Zavřel, Petra Očenášová, Maria A. Sinetova and Jan Červený, date: 08/05/2018, view: 9224, Q&A: 1
This is a protocol for quantitative determination of storage and total carbohydrates in algae and cyanobacteria. The protocol is simple, fast and sensitive and it requires only few standard chemicals. Great advantage of this protocol is that both ...
Measurement of Chlorophyll a and Carotenoids Concentration in Cyanobacteria
Authors:  Tomáš Zavřel, Maria A. Sinetova and Jan Červený, date: 05/05/2015, view: 32480, Q&A: 2
This is a protocol for precise measurement of chlorophyll a and total carotenoid concentrations in cyanobacteria cells. Cellular chlorophyll concentration is one of the central physiological parameters, routinely followed in many research ...

Different Methods of Soil DNA Extraction
Authors:  Asmita Kamble and Harinder Singh, date: 01/20/2020, view: 12783, Q&A: 0
Soil is the major reservoir of microbial diversity. Only 1% of microbial diversity can be cultured while 99% is still not culturable. It is necessary to extract DNA from soil in order to explore the 99% microbial diversity, which will be useful to ...

Fatty Acid Content and Composition of Triacylglycerols of Chlorella kessleri
Authors:  Motohide Aoki and Norihiro Sato, date: 01/05/2018, view: 7884, Q&A: 0
Triacylglycerols (TAGs) are esters formed from one glycerol and three fatty acids. TAGs are induced to accumulate in algal cells under environmental stress conditions including nutrient-limitation, hyperosmosis, and low temperature, for the storage ...
