Abstract

Dunaliella tertiolecta in culture showed rates of net protein synthesis at night nearly equal to those during the day. In night protein synthesis carbon stored in carbohydrates and metabolite pools was used, whereas sulfate was assimilated from the medium as needed. As a result, whole cell C:S ratios varied systematically over the diel cycle, while the C:S ratio of isolated protein remained constant. In the stationary phase, sulfate incorporation into protein, unlike carbon incorporation, measured net protein synthesis rather than turnover. Diel experiments with natural populations of marine and freshwater algae demonstrated that night protein synthesis is a general phenomenon in phytoplankton. -from Authors
