UTEX B 1609
Anabaena aequalis

*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: 1609
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Anabaena aequalis
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin:
Description of Location: CCAP 1403/2a [aka UTEX B 1611 Anabaena cylindrica ] after treatment with bromouracil and penicillin (George 1976)
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: Forest (1964)
Isolator Number: 240
Deposition: T. Kantz (Fall 1967)
Relatives: UTEX 629 ; UTEX 1611; CCAP 1403/2B; PCC 7122 Anabaena (cluster 1) cylindrica TYPE CULTURE; PCC 73105 Anabaena (cluster 1) sp.
Also Known As: A. cylindrica; A. inaequalis
Notes: to Kantz frin CCAP; (Kantz & Bold 1969); taxomomy, identification problems (Anand 1988); 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.
