About this book

Comprises selected papers presented at the international Symposium on Cyanobacterial Biotechnology, under the section headings : Biotechnology and molecular biology; cell biology and physiology; biofertilizer; food, feed and pharmaceuticals; and biodiversity and environment.


Cyanobacterial biotechnology Nostoc PCC 73102 and H2 -knowledge, research and biotechnological challenges; characterization of stress effects on photosynthesis in cyanobacterium "Spirulina paltensis"; the alternative bioenergetics patterns in cyanobacteria as factors of biochemical adaptation; selection and characterization of a high CO2 requiring mutant of cyanobacterium "synechococcus" PCC 7942; the role of polyunsaturated glycerolipids in low-temperature stress - studied by genetically engineered cyanobacterial strains; transport of osmoprotective compounds in salt-loaded cells of "Synechocystis" sp.PCC6803; the role of cyanobacterial exudates for growth of heterotrophic bacteria; the effect of changes in gravity on the cyanobacterium "Synechocystis" sp.PCC6803; do biochemical alterations occur in "Anabaenba cycadeae" upon growth in free-living conditions?; cellular characteristics of a marine "Nostoc calciola" BDU40302; influence of aeration and nutrients on akinete differentiaion in the cyanobacterium "Anabaena torulosa"; photosynthesis respiration interplay in cyanobacteria -fundamentals and applications; characterization of the mutant M406 of "Synechocystis" sp.PCC6803 unable to tolerate high salt concentrations; hydrogenase-mediated hydrogen production in unicellular cyanobacterium "Cyanothese" spp.ATCC 51142; reduction in daily oxygen production rates for predicting biomass productivity in "Spirulina" cultures; strategies to develop a gene transfer system for marine aerobic nitrogen-fixing unicellular cyanobacteria; regulation of gene expression during heterocyst differentiation in "Anabaena" sp. strain PCC7120; genetic and physiological characterization of salt-sensitive mutants of the cyanobacterium "Synechocystis" sp.PCC6803; molecular characterization of the "Azolla-Anabaena" symbiosis; expression, purification and properties of the "Synechocystis" 6803 Ca2+-ATPase; genetic dissection of heterocyst differentiation; stress-regulated gene expression in nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria; cyanobacteria and "azolla" as biofertilizer for rice; use of cyanobacterial biofertilizers in rice cultivation - a technology improvement; cyanobacterial nitrogen metabolism - relevance in agricultural biotechnology; the nitrate metabolism of non N2-fixing cyanobacterium "Synechoccoccus Ieopoliensis" and of "Chlorella sosokiniana" - special features; agronomic potential of a marine "Nostoc calciola" BDU 40302; tubular photobioreactors for large-scale algal culture; spirulina farms - micro to macro; "spirulina" by 2001AD; sugar as a source of carbon for "Spirulina (Arthrospira platensis)" culture; marine cyanobacteria for feed, fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals; stabilization of nitrogenase activity and hydrogen evolution of "Synechocystis" sp. by cell entrapment; genotoxic effects of freshwater cyanobacterium "Microcystis aeruginosa"; studies on the effect of "Spirulina" supplementation in control of diabetes mellitus.
