Method "Carotenoids and Chl were extracted in 80% acetone and the total carotenoid to Chl ratio was estimated from the absorbances of the extract at 460 nm (mainly due to carotenoids) and 663 nm (mainly due to Chl)."
Comments WT data from Table 1 where chlorophyll per cell is given in various conditions. Converted from 1.94e-11 mg to 1.94e-14 g = 19.4 femtograms. Range is a standard deviation from 12 replicates. Was unable to determine how cells were counted in this study.
