Predictive modeling of β-carotene accumulation by Dunaliella salina as a function of pH, NaCI, and irradiance

Predictive modeling of β-carotene accumulation by Dunaliella salina as a function of pH, NaCI,... Predictive modeling of β-carotene accumulation by Dunaliella salina as a function of NaCI, pH, and irradiance was studied. Modified Logistic, Gompertz, Schnute, Richards, and Stannard models were fitted to describe β-carotene accumulation by the alga under various environmental conditions. Lag time (λ, days), maximum accumulation (A, pg/cell), and the maximum production rate (μ, 1/day) for β-carotene accumulation were calculated by modified Logistic and Gompertz models. Values of λ, A, and μ for β-carotene accumulation varied between 0.26 and 20.14 days, 57.48 to 198.76 pg β-carotene/cell, and 1.80 to 3.68 1/day, respectively. Results revealed that Logistic and Gompertz models could be used to describe the accumulation of β-carotene by D. salina as a function of salt concentrations, pH, and irradiance. The highest asymptotic value was predicted from Logistic and Gompertz models at pH 9.0, 48 kerg/(cm2 s) light intensity, and 20% NaCl concentration. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals

Abstract

Predictive modeling of β-carotene accumulation by Dunaliella salina as a function of NaCI, pH, and irradiance was studied. Modified Logistic, Gompertz, Schnute, Richards, and Stannard models were fitted to describe β-carotene accumulation by the alga under various environmental conditions. Lag time (λ, days), maximum accumulation (A, pg/cell), and the maximum production rate (μ, 1/day) for β-carotene accumulation were calculated by modified Logistic and Gompertz models. Values of λ, A, and μ for β-carotene accumulation varied between 0.26 and 20.14 days, 57.48 to 198.76 pg β-carotene/cell, and 1.80 to 3.68 1/day, respectively. Results revealed that Logistic and Gompertz models could be used to describe the accumulation of β-carotene by D. salina as a function of salt concentrations, pH, and irradiance. The highest asymptotic value was predicted from Logistic and Gompertz models at pH 9.0, 48 kerg/(cm2 s) light intensity, and 20% NaCl concentration.
