Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), especially eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids (EPA and DHA), are abundantly synthesized by some phytoplankton species and play a key role in the marine food chain. However, they are generally considered to be sensitive to oxidation by UV radiation (UV-R). In order to investigate the effect of UV-R on the lipid composition of two marine microalgae, Pavlova lutheri and Odontella aurita, they were exposed to a combination of UVA-R and UVB-R with a total… CONTINUE READING
