Differentiation of surface properties of chlorococcalean algae by means of aqueous two phase systems

Jan Burczyk, Dorota Szymakowska


Algal cells belonging to various strains of Chlorococcales (Chlorophyta) have been partitioned in aqueous two-phase systems containing ionogenic polymers, DEAE-dextran or SDS-dextran, at various pH values. Strain-specific differences of partition type which have been found in the phase systems used can be useful for distinguishing of algal cells.
