Abstract

The green alga strain 211–8b (algal collection of Göttingen) is able to grow on more than 100 different sulphur sources such as mercaptides, disulphides, thioethers, sulphinic and sulphonic acids including ‘Good buffers’, sulphoxides, sulphones and sulphate esters. This suggests that green algae might be of importance for degradation of xenobiotics and natural compounds in the overall sulphur cycle. The data presented describe the growth of on such sulphur compounds and the influence of these compounds on enzymes of the assimilatory sulphate reduction sequence.
