Fat accumulation in Nitzschia palea Kutz. starts perceptibly at the end of the exponential phase of growth and reaches a maximum during the stationary phase of growth when the whole cell is filled with fat. Filtrates from old cultures enhanced fat synthesis probably by the production of an autotoxin which inhibits cell growth but at the same time favours fat synthesis. The presence of an inhibitory autotoxin has not been proved but indirect evidence suggests its presence. The nitrogen content… CONTINUE READING
