UTEX 261
Chlorella sorokiniana

*Cryo Only cultures are strains that are not kept in active circulation and therefore require a 4-week minimum processing time period to thaw, grow out, and check viability before shipment.



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 261
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlorella sorokiniana
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin: Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: M.A. Brannon
Isolator Number: 1
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 211/11D aka Stamm 4; SAG 33.80
Also Known As: C. vulgaris (Starr & Zeikus 1987); C. infusionum var. auxenophila (Shihira & Krauss 1965); C. vulgaris f. tertia
Notes: 3/38 to CCAP; physiology/biochemistry/taxonomy (Kessler & Huss 1992); The names of the Chlorella strains given in the last list of cultures (Starr & Zeikus 1987) were based primarily upon the taxonomic treatments of Kessler & Maifarth (1960), Kessler & Soeder (1962), Fott & Novakova (1969) and Kessler (1976). In 1992, Kessler & Huss revised the names of axenic UTEX cultures. Subsequently, most of the changes, but not all, were accepted and incorporated in the UTEX list. "[K&H]" tags the 1992 identifications of Kessler & Huss.

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.
