Abstract:   (2068 Views)
Melatonin has important roles in many growth and stress-related responsive processes in plants and algae. In this study, the mediating role of 100 and 500 µM melatonin on photosynthetic pigments and non-enzymatic antioxidant responses of microalga, Chlorella vulgaris to gamma irradiation stress has been studied. The result showed that the alga treated with 100 µM had a stable amount of chlorophyll and a more stability of cell membrane under gamma stress. It was concluded that although melatonin could increase resistance of alga to gamma by strengthen non-enzymatic antioxidant system like more production of proline, however this resistance probably further be related to enzymatic antioxidant system.
