UTEX 2235
Pseudotrebouxia usneae

*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: 2235
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Pseudotrebouxia usneae
Media: Trebouxia Medium
Origin:
Description of Location: as phycobiont from Usnea filipendula
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation:
Isolator Number:
Deposition: V. Ahmadjian (4/9/80)
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: (Hildreth & Ahmadjian 1981); lichen-synthesis experiments (Ahmadjian 1980) phycobiont-mycobiont interactions (Ahmadjian et al. 1980) resynthesized lichens/products of (Culberson & Ahmadjian 1980)

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.
