||For exposure of cells to salt stress, a solution of 5.0 m NaCl was added to 50 ml of a suspension of cells that had been grown under standard conditions for 16 h, to give a final concentration of 0.5 m. The duration of incubation under salt stress was 20 min, the same duration and molar concentration (of sorbitol) used for the experiments with hyperosmotic stress
||Wild-type cells were grown photoautotrophically at 34 °C in 50 ml of BG-11 medium buffered with 20 mm HEPES-NaOH (pH 7.5) under continuous illumination from incandescent lamps at 70 microeinstein m-2s-1, with aeration by air that contained 1% CO2
