Figure 4

Effect of glucose and ethanol on cell growth and early production of pigments in X. dendrorhous. Cell growth (a), total amount of carotenoids produced by culture volume (b) and carotenoids produced by biomass (c) were determined for the control (untreated, black circle) and cultures treated with glucose (20 g/l final, white inverted triangle) or ethanol (2 g/l final, black square). In addition, the relative content of astaxanthin with respect to the total amount of carotenoids detected in each sample was determined (d). The error bars correspond to standard deviation (n = 3).
