Biosynthesis of triacylglycerol molecular species in an oleaginous fungus, Mortierella ramanniana var. angulispora.


The incorporation of radiolabeled lipid precursors into triacylglycerol (TG) molecular species in Mortierella ramanniana var. angulispora, an oleaginous fungus, was studied to determine the biosynthetic pathways for TG molecular species. Radiolabeled TG molecular species were separated and quantified by reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography… (More)
