UTEX B 2574
Lyngbya lagerheimii

Important Order Deadlines:

Orders for strains that are maintained only in cryopreservation that were placed before October 26th, 2018, will ship on November 26th, 2018. Please 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: 2574
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Lyngbya lagerheimii
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin: Hawaii, USA
Description of Location: soil
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: G.M.L. Patterson
Isolator Number: DN-7-1
Deposition: (7/23/91)
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: inhibits HIV-1 virus/AIDS, sulfolipids/tetrazolium assay (Gustafson et al. 1989)

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.
