Abstract

SUMMARY: The acid-resistant and heat-resistant alga yields cell-wall preparations which are unusually rich in protein (50 to 55%) and contain only small amounts of polysaccharides (hemicellulose, 12 to 14%; cellulose, 3 to 4%). At least 13 amino acids are present in the cell walls, but diamino-pimelic acid, muramic acid and amino sugars are absent. It is suggested that Cyanidium is more closely related to the green rather than the blue-green algae.
