UTEX B 594
Plectonema boryanum

*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: 594
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Plectonema boryanum
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: M.T. Dyar
Isolator Number: 3
Deposition: M.B. Allen (8/54)
Relatives: ATCC 29407; ?ATCC 18200 aka ATCC 15581; PCC 73110
Also Known As: Leptolyngbya sp.; LPP-group; LPP Group B
Notes: grown in shaded light; deposited as M-9.2.1; chromosomal & plasmid DNA isolation (Smoker & Barnum 1988); 2 plasmids (Felker & Barnum 1988); glycolate excretion (Ronstom & Bergman 1989); (Safferman & Morris 1963)

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.
