Biomass and glycogen accumulation of S. elongatus UTEX 2973 under low or high illumination. S. elongatus UTEX 2973 was grown in BG11 media at 41 °C with low-light (LL, 50 µmol photons, indicated by black lines and filled squares) or high-light conditions (HL, 500 µmol photons, indicated by blue lines and open circles). Both dry cell biomass production (a) and glycogen titers (b) of cultures were determined. Intracellular glycogen content (c) is shown as the percentages of dry cell weight. d Absorption spectra of cultures grown for 24 h; the phycobilisome absorption peak (625 nm) is indicated by the arrow. Error bars represent s.d. (n = 3)
