UTEX B 2677
Microcystis flos-aquae

ATTENTION:

Due to the upcoming 2018 Winter Holiday closures, orders placed after the stated deadlines will not ship until 2019 (review expected shipping estimates).

*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: 2677
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Microcystis flos-aquae
Media: J Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection: L.C. Dempsey
Isolation: D. Parker
Isolator Number: UWOCC C3- 40
Deposition: (11/19/97)

Also Known As:
Notes: o Parker from L.C. Dempsey; (D. Parker 6/15/98, pers. Comm.) 38 mol % G+C; polysaccharide slime layer containing (by weight) 83% galacturonic acid and lesser amounts of galactose, glucose, xylose, mannose, and rhamnose, but not detectable protein; coccoid cells; cell diameter = 6-8µm; gas vacuoles; colonies in a copious slime layer with indistinct boundaries and with cells close to the slime boundary; slime layer binds several metal ions; (Dempsey 1977, Fahrenkrug et al. 1992, Parker 1982, Parker et al. 1996, Plude et al. 1991)

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.
