Summary of "Continuous cultivation of Arthrospira platensis for phycocyanin production in large-scale outdoor raceway ponds using microfiltered culture medium."

In the present study, the effect of filtrating algal culture medium for reuse by using microfiltration membranes on microalgal growth, microbiological contamination, and phycocyanin production of Arthrospira platensis was investigated. Results showed that microfiltered culture medium affected microalgal growth, microbiological contamination, and phycocyanin production of A. platensis significantly. Microfiltered culture medium could enhance biomass production, photosynthesis, and phycocyanin accumulation and decrease microbiological contamination during continuous cultivation of A. platensis compared to the control. The profile of microbial communities, which contained the 10 phyla of microorganisms including bacteria and microzooplanktons, was identified for the first time for industrial algae systems of A. platensis with extreme conditions (salt-alkaline stress conditions). The application of the established strategy can enhance phycocyanin production of A. platensis while mitigating microbiological contamination.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods for cultivation of cells, usually on a large-scale, in a closed system for the purpose of producing cells or cellular products to harvest.

The large scale production of pharmaceutically important and commercially valuable RECOMBINANT PROTEINS.

The science of soil cultivation, crop production, and livestock raising.

A scale comprising 18 symptom constructs chosen to represent relatively independent dimensions of manifest psychopathology. The initial intended use was to provide more efficient assessment of treatment response in clinical psychopharmacology research; however, the scale was readily adapted to other uses. (From Hersen, M. and Bellack, A.S., Dictionary of Behavioral Assessment Techniques, p. 87)

A subjective psychometric response scale used to measure distinct behavioral or physiological phenomena based on linear numerical gradient or yes/no alternatives.
