When threeThraustochytrium stains were cultivated in liquid media containing 2.5% starch and 0.2% yeast extract, initial pH 6.0, with shaking under fluorescent light for five days at 25°C, similar biomass yields were observed (9.7–10.3 g L−1). Contents of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in biomass varied: 0.15, 3.55 and 6.40% w/w forT. striatum ATCC 24473,T. aureum ATCC 34304 andT. roseum ATCC 28210, respectively. In further studies,T. roseum produced a maximum titer of 0.85 g of DHA per liter of… CONTINUE READING
