Abstract
    Three sugars (fructose, sucrose and mannose) and three amino acids (alanine, lysine, and methionine) have been tested as potential growth factors for the marine microalgae Tetraselmis suecica, in axenic cultures, at 850 lux light intensity. The organic compounds assayed affected the growth and biochemical composition of T. suecica. Growth stimulation was achieved only in cultures added with fructose, whereas growth was not affected in the cultures with the remaining sugars and alanine. Growth was inhibited in the cultures added with lysine and methionine. Biochemical cellular composition was affected by the nature of the organic compound added, but not by the concentration used. Proteins were the main cellular constituent in the cultures carried out with sugars, while in those with amino acids the main cellular fraction was lipids.
