STUDY OF ANTIOXIDANT POTENTIALS OF ALKALIPHILIC CYANOBACTERIA ISOLATED FROM LONAR LAKE, INDIA

Seven different Cyanobacterial species belonging to 4 genera were isolated from the alkaline Lake Lonar, situated in the Buldhana district of Maharashtra. The phycocyanin producing ability of all the isolates was screened. All the isolated alkaliphilic cyanobacteria showed more than 10 mgL-1 of phycocyanin.  From the seven cultures tested, Synechocystis aquatilis showed the highest production of ...
