NR specific activity increased with the nitrate concentration of the water in upwelling areas of the Peru Current. The temperature optimum for NR for natural phytoplankton was 15° to 20°C. NR activity showed diel periodicity, with maximum activity about noon and minimum activity near midnight local time. Rate of nitrate reduction in the extracts averaged only about 15% of the rate of nitrate assimilation in the whole cells.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50908||ISSN:||0025-3162||DOI:||10.1007/BF00347227||Source:||Marine Biology [ISSN 0025-3162], v. 6, p. 195-199|
