The influence of inorganic carbon compounds (sodium bicarbonate and carbon dioxide) on cell volume of nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria - Nostoc calcicola and its mutant resistant to high concentrations of bicarbonate (HCO3-R), and Anabaena sp. and its mutant resistant to high concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2R) was investigated. Morphologically, HCO3-R and CO2R mutants (isolated through mutagenesis with MNNG) exhibited shorter trichomes consisting of 4-20 cells per trichome. Following incorporation of HCO3- or CO2 in the growth medium, the cell volume increased in the wild type strains and their mutants in a concentration dependent manner. It was concluded that the significant effect on cell volumes of wild type and mutants, may be due to intracellular influx of bicarbonate ions or CO2 molecules.
