UTEX B 584
Nostoc commune

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.

To ensure only healthy cultures are sent out, UTEX may temporarily remove the ability to purchase a strain. Once the strain is available again, an email will be sent to customers who have requested a notification.


Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 584
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Nostoc commune
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: T. Gibson
Isolator Number: 4
Deposition: M.B. Allen (8/54)
Relatives: SAG B 1453-5; UTCC 74; NIBB 1033
Also Known As:
Notes: deposited as M-12.1.1; to Allen from M. Dyar; recombinant phage (Xie & Potts 1989); molecular data suggest it may be a different species (Wright et al. 2001); 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.
