N2 - The influence of Na fixation on the P-limited growth of two strains of Anabaena and Aphanizomenon was investigated using continuous cultures. Under N-2-fixing conditions Anabaena had a higher maximum growth rate, a greater affinity for P, a higher yield on P and a higher N-2 fixation activity than Aphanizomenon. In contrast to Anabaena, Aphanizomenon did not adjust its specific N-2 fixation activity and its cells became N depleted at high growth rates. Metabolic control analysis revealed that the growth rate of Aphanizomenon was controlled to a lesser extent by P than Anabaena's growth rate.
