Extracellular liberation of dissolved carbohydrates by Cricosphaera carterae and Coccolithus huxleyi

Sumitra-Vijayaraghavan

Abstract



Excretion of dissolved carbohydrates (DCHO) by Cricosphaera carterae and Coccolithus huxleyi was studied under laboratory conditions for fifteen days. Production of DCHO varied from 0.5 to 2.5 mu g/ml in C. carterae and 0.4 to 3.5 mu g/ml in C. huxleyi. Accumulation of DCHO was maximum towards the declining phase of the cultures. The importance of organic material excreted by algae have been indicated
