Apiotrichum curvatum ATCC 20509, an oleaginous yeast that can accumulate up to 60% of its cellular dry weight as intracellular lipid when grown with excess carbon, was grown in nitrogen-limited, balanced, and lactose-free medium with asparagine as nitrogen source and lactose as carbon source. Biomass and lipid accumulation were measured, cell composition was analyzed, and catalase activity was followed as marker enzyme for peroxisomes. The organism accumulated 54% of its dry weight as total… CONTINUE READING
