The effects on productivity of the light-harvesting pigment in cells of themarine Chlamydomonas perigranulata were examined using thewild type and a mutant with a lower level of the light-harvesting pigment(LHC-1). We confirmed the photosynthetic characteristics of the wild typeand LHC-1, and these were retained generally in the continuous culturesused for evaluating productivity. The maximum productivity was 1.5 timeshigher in LHC-1 than that in the wild type. The photosynthetic productivityefficiency was higher in LHC-1 than in the wild type. These resultsindicate that the improvement in productivity can be attributed to theimproved photosynthetic productivity efficiency. We conclude that thetechnique of reducing the content of light-harvesting pigment is not onlyavailable for blue-green microalgae, but also for green microalgae.
