Chlamydomonas starchless mutant defective in ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase hyper-accumulates triacylglycerol.
Many microalgae and plants have the ability to synthesize large amounts of triacylglycerol (TAG) that can be used to produce biofuels. Presently, TAG-based biofuel production is limited by theExpand

Photosynthetic carbon partitioning and lipid production in the oleaginous microalga Pseudochlorococcum sp. (Chlorophyceae) under nitrogen-limited conditions.
Photosynthetic carbon partitioning into starch and neutral lipid was investigated in the oleaginous green microalga Pseudochlorococcum sp. When grown under low light and nitrogen-replete conditions,Expand

Inhibition of starch synthesis results in overproduction of lipids in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Starch and neutral lipids are two major carbon storage compounds in many microalgae and plants. Lipids are more energy rich and have often been used as food and fuel feedstocks. Genetic engineeringExpand

Characteristics and reactivity of algae-produced dissolved organic carbon
Algae (green, blue–green, and diatom) grown in inorganic media produced particulate and dissolved organic carbon (DOC). DOC produced by a green-alga contains 25% hydrophobic acids. DOC from all algaeExpand
