Lipids and lipid metabolism in eukaryotic algae.
Eukaryotic algae are a very diverse group of organisms which inhabit a huge range of ecosystems from the Antarctic to deserts. They account for over half the primary productivity at the base of the… Expand

Algal lipids and effect of the environment on their biochemistry
Lipids play a number of roles in living organisms and can be divided into two main groups: the nonpolar lipids (acylglycerols, sterols, free (nonesterified) fatty acids, wax, and steryl esters) and… Expand

Occurrence and Characteristics of Oils and Fats
A raison d'être for two distinct pathways in the early steps of plant isoprenoid biosynthesis?
When compared to other organisms, plants are atypical with respect to isoprenoid biosynthesis: they utilize two distinct and separately compartmentalized pathways to build up isoprene units. The… Expand
Does the membrane's physical state control the expression of heat shock and other genes?
Membranes provide the structural framework that divides cells from their environment and that, in eukaryotic cells, permits compartmentation. They are not simply passive barriers that are liable to… Expand
Increasing the flow of carbon into seed oil.
The demand for vegetable oils for food, fuel (bio-diesel) and bio-product applications is increasing rapidly. In Canada alone, it is estimated that a 50 to 75% increase in canola oil production will… Expand
