UTEX B 389
Nostoc muscorum

ATTENTION:

The deadline for 2018 shipment on orders for strains maintained in cryopreservation only (cryo only) was November 14, 2018. Orders placed after this deadline will not ship until Early February 2019. View more information here.

*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: 389
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Nostoc muscorum
Media: BG-11(-N) Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: T. Gibson (1945)
Isolator Number: Anabaena 2
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 1453/9; SAG 1453-12b
Also Known As: Nostoc sp.; Nostoc muscorum
Notes: 1976 renamed (George 1976); grown in shaded light

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.
