UTEX B 94
Chlamydomonas moewusii

*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: 94
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlamydomonas moewusii
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: R.A. Lewin (before 1950)
Isolator Number: mutant M.202+, monstrous cells, cytokinesis affected
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 11/16B; SAG 11-16b
Also Known As: Chlamydomonas eugametos var. moewusii
Notes: 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.
