Gas. vacuoles. A gas vacuole is composed of gas vesicles, or hollow cylindrical
tubes with conical ends, in the cytoplasm of cyanobacteria (Figs. 2.11, 2.17) (
Walsby, 1994; Oliver, 1994). Gas vesicles do not have true protein-lipid
Growth and Reproductive Strategies of Freshwater Phytoplankton
Buoyancy is regulated by varying intracellular gas vacuole formation and by
adjusting cellular ballast. Both mechanisms are regulated through the synthesis
and breakdown of specific products of photosynthesis (Dinsdale & Walsby 1972;
Complex Intracellular Structures in Prokaryotes
Mol Gen Genet 218:437–444 Horne M, Englert C, Pfeifer F (1988) Two genes
encoding gas vacuole proteins in Halobacterium halobium. Mol Gen Genet 213:

Ecology of Cyanobacteria II: Their Diversity in Space and Time
6.11.1 Gas Vacuole Structure Gas vacuoles are comprised of numerous cylinders
known as gas vesicles (Bowen and Jensen 1965). These structures are hollow
but rigid, proteinaceous cylinders capped at either end by a cone. Specific gas ...

A. E. Walsby (1) Fine structure (2) Chemical composition (3) Formation of gas
vesicles (4) Physical properties (5) Variation in the degree of gas vacuolation (6)
Functions A. Light shielding B. Providing buoyancy Until recently the gas vacuole
N. G. Carr, Brian A. Whitton, 1973
The Biology of Cyanobacteria
By regulating their gas vacuole content these organisms are able to adjust their
buoyancy. Studies on planktonic cyanobacteria in culture have shown that gas-
vacuolation is regulated in response to light irradiance in a way which permits ...
N. G. Carr, Brian A. Whitton, 1982
The Ecology of Freshwater Phytoplankton
Their rigid proteinaceous walls are fully permeable to gases but a hydrophobic
inner surface prevents the influx of liquid water (for a recent review of gas
vacuole structure, see Walsby, 1978a). In this way, the vesicles collectively
maintain a ...
Light and Photosynthesis in Aquatic Ecosystems
It is the gas-vacuole volume/cell volume ratio that determines whether, and how
fast, the cells rise or sink, or remain at the same depth. Vacuole formation is
favoured by dim light, by a lack of inorganic carbon (CO2, HCO3 À) for
Advances in Water Resources & Hydraulic Engineering: ...
The result was that when the pressuring velocity is as fast as the water hammer
pressure could act, it was shown to be effective in the destruction of the gas
vacuole and the cell. blue-green algae; pressure treatment; water hammer
