Fig. 8

A simplified scheme showing regulation employed by Spirulina subsalsa to survive in mZM (a) and seawater mixed with MSGR (b). Different color of tails for lipids in membrane stands for the saturability of fatty acids: yellow is for saturated tail, red colored monosaturated tail, purple represents polysaturated tail. The width of the arrows represents the speed of ions moving towards the arrow direction. PM: plasma membrane; TM: Thylakoid membrane; ATP: adenosine triphosphate; ADP: adenosine diphosphate
