The effects of silicate and glucose on growth and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) production by the diatom Nitzschia laevis were studied. By alternately altering the concentrations of silicate (2.7–64 mg l−1) and glucose (1–40 g l−1) in the medium, the highest cell dry weight (ca. 5.5 g l−1) was obtained at 20 g l−1 glucose and 32 mg l−1 silicate, while the highest specific growth rate (ca. 0.65 day−1) was obtained at a relatively low glucose concentration (5 g l−1) and high silicate concentrations… CONTINUE READING
