UNLABELLED Understanding microalgal lipid accumulation under nitrogen starvation is of major interest for biomass feedstock, food and biofuel production. Using a domesticated oleaginous algae Tisochrysis lutea, we performed the first comparative proteomic analysis on the wild type strain and a selected lipid over-accumulating mutant. 2-DE analysis was made(More)
2-Ethyhexyl nitrate (2-EHN) is a major additive of fuel that is used to increase the cetane number of diesel. Because of its wide use and possible accidental release, 2-EHN is a potential pollutant of the environment. In this study, Mycobacterium austroafricanum IFP 2173 was selected from among several strains as the best 2-EHN degrader. The 2-EHN(More)
Azadinium spinosum (Elbrächter and Tillmann), a small marine dinoflagellate, has been recently described as a de novo producer of azaspiracid-1 and -2 (AZA1 and -2) diarrhoeic toxins. A culture of A. spinosum was established in our laboratory and optimised for pilot-scale production of this organism, to evaluate and understand AZA1 and -2 accumulation and(More)
The 2-ethyhexyl nitrate (2-EHN) is currently added to diesel oil to improve ignition and boost cetane number. The biodegradability of this widely used chemical needed to be assessed in order to evaluate the environmental impact in case of accidental release. In aerobic liquid cultures, biodegradation of 2-EHN was assessed in biphasic liquid cultures using(More)
A fast and high-resolution UPLC-MSE analysis was used to identify phytoplankton pigments in an ethanol extract of Porphyridium purpureum (Pp) devoid of phycobiliproteins. In a first step, 22 standard pigments were analyzed by UPLC-MSE to build a database including retention time and accurate masses of parent and fragment ions. Using this database, seven(More)
Phytoplankton, with an estimated 30 000 to 1 000 000 species clustered in 12 phyla, presents a high taxonomic and ecophysiological diversity, reflected by the complex distribution of pigments among the different algal classes. High performance liquid chromatography is the gold standard method for qualitative and quantitative analysis of phytoplankton(More)
19 2-Ethyhexyl nitrate (2-EHN) is a major additive of fuel which is used to comply with the 20 cetane number of diesel. Because of its wide use and possible accidental release, 2-EHN is a 21 potential pollutant of the environment. In this study, Mycobacterium austroafricanum IFP 22 2173 was selected among several strains as the best 2-EHN degrader. The(More)
2-Ethyhexyl nitrate (2-EHN) is a synthetic chemical used as a diesel fuel additive, which is recalcitrant to biodegradation. In this study, the enzymes involved in 2-EHN degradation were investigated in Mycobacterium austroafricanum IFP 2173. Using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and a shotgun proteomic approach, a total of 398 proteins appeared to be(More)
