the research aim of this study was to characterize an isolated native strain of Chlorella sp. ACUF_802, well adapted to a high nitrate concentration environment and to investigate its potential to nitrate and phosphate removal from industrial wastewaters with the minimal addition of chemical reagents and energy. The isolated strain was identified and evaluated for its capability to support biomass growth and nutrient removal from synthetic wastewater in batch tests using different concentrations...

The Cyanobacterium Oculatella subterranea Zammit, Billi, Albertano inhabits hypogea and stone caves and is a pioneer of different stone substrata. In this study, a strain isolated from the House of Marco Castricio (Archaeological Park of Pompeii, Italy) was identified by a polyphasic approach and used for an in vitro colonization test to verify the influence of the substrate on the biofilm architecture. Fine structure of O. subterranea microbial mats was revealed as well as filaments orientation...

Cyanidiophytina are a group of polyextremophilic red algae with a worldwide, but discontinuous colonization. They are restricted to widely dispersed hot springs, geothermal habitats, and also some human-altered environments. Cyanidiophytina are predominant where pH is prohibitive for the majority of eukaryotes (pH 0.5–3). Turkey is characterized by areas rich in volcanic activity separated by non-volcanic areas. Here we show that Cyanidiophycean populations are present in thermal baths located a...

Abstract To date, the main source for phycocyanin production is the thermophilic cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis , although latest researches are exploring the possibility to exploit the thermoacidophilic Cyanidiophyceae (Rhodophyta) to this purpose. Galdieria phlegrea is a polyextremophilic red alga belonging to Cyanidiophyceae, colonizing, along with G . sulphuraria , acidic and thermal environments and distinguishable from this latter on the base of molecular and ecophysiological traits. I...

A key aspect of the industrial development of microalgal production processes is the excessive cost of biomass production. A solution is a combination of biodiesel production and wastewater treatment. The microalga Scenedesmus has a high lipid content and a potential extracellular phenoloxidase activity, which could improve the phycoremediation of phenolic pollutants. In this work, the most suitable growth conditions to obtain this twofold aim were analyzed. First, different strains of Scenedesm...

The Algal Collection at the University Federico II (ACUF) is a bioresource center where over 800 live microalgal strains are maintained, mainly belonging to Cyanobacteria, Chlorophyta, Rhodophyta, and Bacillariophyceae. The extremophilic algae maintained at ACUF include thermo-acidophilic and acidotolerant strains, mostly belonging to the Cyanidiophyceae isolated from European and extra-European sites, and also terrestrial isolates from bare rocks and monuments. The main target of the ACUF Cente...

The nomenclatural history of the genus Cyanidium (Tilden) Geitler is long and complex, due to uncertainties regarding its taxonomic position. In the course of the last two centuries, Cyanidium has been assigned to Cyanophyta, Chlorophyta, and finally to Rhodophyta (Ott & Sechback 1994, Albertano et al. 2000). On the basis of morphological, ultrastructural and reproductive characters, Merola et al. (1981) instituted two new genera, Galdieria and Cyanidioschyzon , strictly related to Cyanidium , a...
