Temperature modulation of fatty acid profiles for biofuel production in nitrogen deprived Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

James, Gabriel; Hocart, Charles; Hillier, Warwick; Price, Graeme (Dean); Djordjevic, Michael


This study investigated the changes in the fatty acid content and composition in the nitrogen-starved. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii starchless mutant, BAF-J5, grown at different temperatures. The optimal temperature for vegetative growth under nitrogen sufficient conditions was found to be 32 °C. Shifting temperature from 25 to 32 °C, in conjunction with nitrogen starvation, resulted in BAF-J5 storing the maximum quantity of fatty acid (76% of dry cell weight). Shifting to temperatures lower than...[Show more]
