Description

Ulva linza-1.jpg
  • U. linza is a green macroalga (seaweed) that is widely used as a model organism in marine biofouling studies. Reproduction is facilitated by the release of motile, pear-shaped zoospores, 5-8 μm in length that are surrounded by a lipoprotein plasma membrane, ie there is no polysaccharide cell wall. Spores have a negative zeta potential, are negatively phototactic and also respond to a number of surface cues eg wettability, charge and topography. Settlement involves rapid secretion of a glycoprotein adhesive and permanent attachment to the substratum, retraction of the four flagella resulting in loss of motility, and the formation of a polysaccharide-rich cell wall. Permanently attached zoospores are rounded and typically 4-5 μm in diameter. Settlement (ie permanent attachment) is followed by germination of the attached spore, cell division and eventually the formation of a new adult plant[1] [2] .
