Optimum conditions of temperature, salinity and glucose concentration were investigated for squalene production of the strain of Aurantiochytrium sp. 18 W-13a, with a high content of squalene. Squalene production by this strain was optimum at 25 °C, 25-50% seawater concentration and 2-6% glucose concentration. When this strain was grown in the optimum(More)
Screenings of thraustochytrids (Labyrinthulomycetes) have been conducted for 176 strains isolated from various sites in the Asian region to investigate what type of species and strains accumulate high levels of squalene. Thin layer chromatography (TLC) screening for squalene production revealed that 38 strains were rated as “+” (high), 29 as “±” (medium),(More)
