The degree of unsaturation of fatty acids was higher in Chlorella vulgaris 11h cells grown with air (low-CO(2) cells) than in the cells grown with air enriched with 2% CO(2) (high-CO(2) cells). The change in the ratio of linoleic acid to alpha-linolenic acid was particularly significant. This change of the ratio was observed in four major lipids (monogalactosyldiacylglycerol, digalactosyldiacylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine, and phosphatidylethanolamine). The relative contents of lipid classes… CONTINUE READING
