The red alga Gratelupia doryphora was cultivated in Provasoli enricher (plain) seawater and in a glycerol media. The incubation in seawater leads to an increase in the percentage of polyunsaturated acids, while the glycerol increase the total lipid content. If the alga is being grown as a heterotrophic culture, it is possible to increase the alga biomass as well as the content of biologically-active fatty acids.

Optimization of biomass and fatty acid productivity of Scenedesmus obliquus as a promising microalga for biodiesel production
TLDR
The present study examines the possibility of enhancement of fatty acid productivity of Scenedesmus obliquus by modifications of the culture medium composition by studying the effect of different concentrations of sodium bicarbonate, salinity, potassium nitrate, glycerol and sugarcane molasses on the enhancement of biomass and esterified fatty acids production.

Improvement of Medium Composition and Utilization of Mixotrophic Cultivation for Green and Blue Green Microalgae towards Biodiesel Production
TLDR
Optimal culture medium significantly improved growth, CDW for three microalgae, beside increasing lipid content and lipid productivity for S. acuminatus and C. aponicum by 7.5 and 5 folds respectively at 25 th day compared to Bold’s medium.

Distribution of C20 Polyenoic Fatty Acids in Red Macrophytic Algae
TLDR
The fatty acid composition of 28 species of red algae was studied, finding that Rhodophyta typically have high levels of C2o polyunsaturated fatty acids, and arachidonic acid was the main polyenoic acid in Grateloupia divaricata only.
Light control of the respiration of exogenous glycerol in the red macroalga Grateloupia doryphora
TLDR
Heterotrophic activity in macroalgae has been little studied, but the red macroalga Grateloupia doryphora is known to grow in light at a higher rate in a glycerol-containing medium than in seawater, suggesting that non-photosynthetic patterns were operating.
Glycerol-activated cellular division and biosynthetic activity during growth and morphogenesis of carpospore seedlings of Grateloupia doryphora (Cryptonemiales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
The red alga Grateloupia doryphora (Montagne) Howe was grown in axenic culture in Provasoli's enriched seawater medium supplemented with glycerol as an organic carbon source and the regeneration capability remained with the internal cells that maintained their cell structure and accumulated compounds in large vacuoles.
A rapid method of total lipid extraction and purification.
TLDR
The lipid decomposition studies in frozen fish have led to the development of a simple and rapid method for the extraction and purification of lipids from biological materials that has been applied to fish muscle and may easily be adapted to use with other tissues.
