UTEX 229
Chlamydomonas zebra

Due to the upcoming Winter Holiday closures, orders placed after November 15, 2017 for any Bulk Microalgae, Freshwater Diatoms, and strains kept in cryopreservation (cryo only-designated and NAABB strains), will not ship until early February 2018.



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 229
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlamydomonas zebra
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin: Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: M.A. Brannon
Isolator Number: 5
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 11/3; SAG 8.72
Also Known As: formerly Chlamydomonas brannonii (Starr & Zeikus 1987)
Notes: 3/38 to CCAP as new type from M.A. Brannon; In 1990, UTEX, CCAP, and SAG strains of Chlamydomonas were investigated by H. Ettl & U.G. Schlosser and many were found to be incorrectly named. Subsequently, most of the changes, but not all, were accepted and incorporated in the UTEX list. "[E&S]" tags the 1990 identifications of Ettl & Schlosser (pers. comm.).

Cryopreservation Conditions

Temperature: -190 °C
Light source: Not Applicable
Intensity: Not Applicable
Periodicity: Not Applicable

Cryopreservation stabilizes genomic integrity, preserves culture quality, minimizes maintenance costs and reduces the risk of catastrophic loss. A broad variety of techniques employed at the CCAP, at UTEX, and elsewhere, can be found in Day, J.G. and Brand, J.J. Cryopreservation Methods for Maintaining Microalgal Cultures, in Algal Culturing Techniques, ed. R. A. Andersen, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 2006. A relatively simple method that uses a minimum of specialized equipment, yet allows a large variety of microalgae to be cryopreserved with high viability, can be found on the Cryopreservation of Microalgae page.
