The composition of fatty acids synthesized de novo by thirty strains of zygomycetes from various taxa was studied. The qualitative fatty acid compositions of the fungal lipids were found to be virtually identical, but there were significant differences in the contents of individual acids. Highly active producers of essential C18 fatty acids, with their content exceeding 30–40% of total fatty acids, were discovered among the fungi of the families Mucoraceae, Pilobolaceae, and Radiomycetaceae… Expand
Biologically active lipids in fungi of the Pilobolaceae family
TLDR
The fungi grown in submerged cultures showed a correlation of the degree of unsaturation of total fatty acids and the contents of β-carotene, which is typical of zygomycetes of the order Mucorales. Expand
The prevalence of cis-9-hexadecenoic acid is a specific feature of the fatty acid profile of zygomycetes from the order Kickxellales
TLDR
The fatty acid profiles of zygomycetes from the familykickxellaceae of the order Kickxellales were studied with reference to the species Kicksella alabastrina of the key genus KicksellA of the family and the species Linderina pennispora to show the prevalence of cis-9-hexadecenoic acid. Expand

Filamentous fungi for production of food additives and processing aids.
TLDR
This review chapter focuses on the use of fungi in the production of food additives but takes a largely pre-genomic, albeit a mainly molecular, view of the topic. Expand
Reduction of Chemical and Biological Oxygen Demands from Oil Wastes via Oleaginous Fungi: An Attempt to Convert Food by Products to Essential Fatty Acids.
TLDR
This study emphasized the abilities of oleaginous fungi to utilize oil wastes as carbon sources to reduce BOD and COD of the wastes, producing essential fatty acids. Expand
Challenges and Future Perspectives in the Systematics of Kickxellomycotina, Mortierellomycotina, Mucoromycotina , and Zoopagomycotina
TLDR
Evidence suggests that genome sequencing from a wide array of taxa in these four subphyla combined with innovative environmental sampling approaches is likely to revolutionize the authors' understanding of these fungi and also the fungal tree of life. Expand

TLDR
St sterol patterns of the Mucor species analyzed in this study were similar to each other but were not sufficiently similar to those of the Micromucor to suggest a close taxonomic affinity with the MUCoraceae. Expand
