Strain - Media and Culture condition

Preparation of Enriched Sea Water

  1. Collect offshore water and remove particulate matter with filters.
  2. Sterilize filtrated sea water by autoclaving at 121 ℃ for 20 min.
  3. Dissolve 20 ml of PESI or PES medium into 1000 ml of sterilized sea water.

Preparation of PESI medium

  1. Dissolve appropriate quantities of weighted Tris, NaNO3, C3H7Na2O6P・5H2O, Fe solution, PII metal solution and KI solution into about 300 ml of distilled water in order.
  2. Check the pH and adjust to 7.8 with 1N HCl or NaOH, and then dilute to 1000 ml of final volume with distilled water.
  3. Dispense 20 ml of the medium into each of seeled tube and sterilize the medium by autoclaving at 121 ℃ for 20 min, and store at 4 ℃.

Preparation of PES medium

  1. Dissolve appropriate quantities of weighted Tris, NaNO3, C3H7Na2O6P・5H2O, Fe solution, PII metal solution, VitamineB12, Tyamine and Biotine into about 300 ml of distilled water in order.
  2. Check the pH and adjust to 7.8 with 1N HCl or NaOH, and then dilute to 1000 ml of final volume with distilled water.
  3. Dispense 20 ml of the medium into each of seeled tube and sterilize the medium by autoclaving at 121 ℃ for 20 min, and store at 4 ℃.

Preparation of Fe solution

  1. 1Dissolve appropriate quantities of weighted Na2-EDTA・2H2O and Fe(NH4)2(SO4)2・6H2O into about 450 ml of distilled water in order.
  2. Dilute to 500 ml of final volume with distilled water, and store at 4 ℃

Preparation of P-2 metal solution

  1. Dissolve appropriate quantities of weighted Na2-EDTA・2H2O, H3BO3, FeCl3・6H2O, MnSO4・4H2O, CoSO4・7H2O stock solution, ZnSO4・7H2O into about 450 ml of distilled water in order.
  2. Dilute to 500 ml of final volume with distilled water, and store at 4 ℃
