ABSTRACT

The accumulation of ammonium nitrogen in the culture medium of green and blue-green algae of the genera The accumulation of ammonium nitrogen in the culture medium of green and blue-green algae of the genera Acutodesmus (Hedew.) Tsar. (1 species), Chlorella Beijer, (1), Coelastrum Nag. (1), and Desmodesmus (Chod.) An, Friedl et Hegew. (5) was studied in the process of their growth on urea. It has been revealed that a sharp increase in the NH4+ concentration in the culture of blue-green algae due to the high activity of urease leads to their inhibition, and eventually to their death. Chlorococcal algae containing urea amidase differed in a low intensity of urea hydrolysis and in the absence of the inhibitory effect of NH4+ ions on their growth. In addition, it has been shown that the character of urea decomposition depends on the biological peculiarities of the species, which is the most distinct in representatives of the order Chlorococcales. The presence of accompanying (associated) bacteria in their culture leads to a decrease in the ammonium nitrogen quantity in the medium.
