Abstract: Carotenoid content of microalga, Dunaliella salina was increased using different stress parameters, such as cell division inhibition (vinblastine), nitrogen starvation, high salinity and high irradiation with high temperature. Vinblastine had very little favourable effect. Salinity above 3 M significantly decreased the cell growth rate due to cell death but increased the per cell carotenoid content. With nitrogen starvation, -carotene content increased from 1.65 pg/cell to 7.05 pg/cell. However, the maximum -carotene (8.28 pg/cell) was obtained with high irradiation along with high temperature.
