Enhanced eicosapentaenoic acid production by a new deep-sea marine bacterium Shewanella electrodiphila MAR441T - Fig 2
(A) Time period of cell growth (filled circles) and quantitative yield of whole cell TFAs and EPA in strain MAR441T grown in marine broth medium at 15°C during the time period. Total fatty acids (TFAs, filled boxes); eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, open circles); quantitative yield of biomass (open boxes). (B) Change in average chain length (ACL, open diamonds) and relative proportion of whole cell FAs in strain MAR441T grown in marine broth medium at 15°C during the time period. Straight chain fatty acids (SCFAs, filled circles), branched chain fatty acids (BCFAs, filled boxes), monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs, open boxes); eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, open circles). The experiments were carried out in triplicate and values are means of three samples based on S1 Table.
