Carrier Turnover and Phosphate Uptake in Chlorella pyrenoidosa
In a previous publication (JEANJEAN, 1973) it was shown that Chlorella cells growing in a culture medium depleted of phosphate exhibit an increased capacity for phosphate absorption. This increase can be inhibited by impairing protein synthesis in a number of ways. The addition of phosphate to starved Chlorella rapidly results in a reduction in the absorption rate. These results were interpreted as a repressing effect of phosphate on phosphate carrier synthesis.
