Eustigmatophyceae

[‚yüs·tig‚ma·də′fī·sē·ē]
(botany)
A small class of mostly nonmotile, photosynthetic, unicellular algae in the division Chromophycota, characterized by the unique organization of motile cells, photosynthetic pigments including chlorophyll a, beta-carotene, and violaxanthin, and a single parietal yellow-green chloroplast; live chiefly in fresh water but also in marine and soilhabitats.

In this study, the unicellular red alga Porphyridium cruentum, which is a member of the Rodophyta, and Nannochloropsis oculata, a marine unicellular alga belonging to the Eustigmatophyceae family, were used as naturel pigment sources.

Esta microalga pertenece a la clase Eustigmatophyceae, que agrupa a las especies que contienen la mayor cantidad de acidos grasos poliinsaturados (PUFAs), especialmente acido eicosapentaenoico (EPA), acido araquidonico (ARA), docosahexaenoico (DHA) de gran importancia en la nutricion de animales marinos, especialmente en el crecimiento y desarrollo de larvas de peces, moluscos y crustaceos (Otero et al.

The isolated cyanobacteria Aphanocapsa marina, might be used to feed shrimp larvae of Litopenaeus vannamei as the cyanobacteria Synechococus elongatus, which forms chains of cells, that previously was used with this purpose (Moreno-Perez & Sanchez-Saavedra, 2009), or to feed zooplankton like Brachionus plicatilis, that typically is fed with the Eustigmatophyceae Nannochloropsis oculata (Campa-Avila & Sanchez-Saavedra, 2002).

It belongs to the class Eustigmatophyceae, which groups together species that contain a high amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), arachidonic acid (ARA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are of great importance in the nutrition of marine animals, particularly for growth and development of the larvae of fish, mollusks and crustaceans (Otero et al.
