Abstract

Seasonal changes in the contents of lipids and photosynthetic pigments (PSP) in the brown alga Undaria pinnatifida (Harvey) Suringar (Phaeophyceae, Alariaceae) on different stages of its growth were studied. Lipids of all plant growth group comprised glyceroglycolipids (GL), phospholipids, and neutral lipids (NL). The ratio between these lipid groups and the content of particular lipids depended on the season and algal growth stage: NL predominated in seedlings; juvenile algae comprised approximately similar amounts of NL and GL; and in adult algae, GL predominated. In winter and spring, algal tissues contained relatively more free sterols than in summer. Total lipid content in seedlings and juvenile algae was higher then in adult plants. Lipid fatty acid (FA) composition was similar on all growth stages, but the content of major components differed; this is mainly related to 18:4 n-3, 20:4 n-6, and 20:5 n-3 acids. The predominant FAs in seedling lipids were saturated FAs, whereas in the lipids of juvenile and adult algae, polyunsaturated FAs predominated.
