UTEX B 1542
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: 1542
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Plectonema boryanum
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation: M.B. Allen
Isolator Number: 6306
Deposition: M.M. Allen (5/66)
Relatives: UTEX 581; ATCC 27894; PCC 6306; PCC reference strain; ACMM 367
Also Known As: Leptolyngbya boryanum; P. notatum; LPP-group; LPP Group B
Notes: 2 plasmids (Felkner & Barnum 1988); taxonomy (Rippka et al. 1979); 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.
