Range 1.4 to 6.1 Table - link %
Organism phytoplankton
Reference Losh JL, Young JN, Morel FM. Rubisco is a small fraction of total protein in marine phytoplankton. New Phytol. 2013 Jan 24. doi: 10.1111/nph.12143. p.4 table 1PubMed ID23343368
Method "Eight species of microalgae were grown in batch culture and harvested for protein in exponential and stationary growth phases. In all species, Rubisco concentrations were higher in the exponential phase compared to stationary phase."
Comments "Cultures tested are: Thalassiosira weissflogii (Tw), Thalassiosira oceanica (To), Skeletonema costatum (Sc), Chaetoceros muelleri (Cm), Phaeodactylum tricornutum (Pt), Emiliana huxleyi (Eh), Isochrysis galbana (Ig) and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (Cr)."
