Isolation of quizalofop-resistant mutants of Nannochloropsis oculata (Eustigmatophyceae) with high eicosapentaenoic acid following N-methyl-N-nitrosourea-induced random mutagenesis

Nannochloropsis oculata was subjected to N-methyl-N-nitrosourea-induced mutagenesis under the selection pressure of quizalofop, a known inhibitor of acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACCase) activity with the objective of generating genetically tractable mutants with altered fatty acid metabolism. Two mutants, QUIZ1 and QUIZ2, with stable resistance to quizalofop… (More)
