Abstract

Highly useful and economic algae especially protein-rich micro- algae are highly affected, and the protein, carbohydrate and pigments are highly damaged by increased UV-B exposure in a high protein-rich (45%),green,freshwater, unicellular,microalga  Chlorella vulgaris. 1 mM sodium dithionite (SDT) partially protected survival and growth against UV-B induced damage but NaCI (0.5m) became lethal to C. vulgaris in supplemented condition.

Key words: UV-B; Protection; Survival; Growth; Chlorella
