Temperature Optimization for Arachidonic and Eicosapentanoic Acids Production by Oomycete Pythium irregulare LX

Authors : Mehdi Ghasemi, Yemen Atakishiyeva and Keyvan Radjabalizadeh

Abstract: The biomass, substrate utilization, lipids and individual Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acid (PUFA) profiles were studied in oomycete Pythium irregulare LX and isolated in Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (AMEA), during the fermentation process at different temperatures. The results were then applied to determine an optimized incubation temperature mode for target PUFA production. When temperature did not shift, the optimal lipid, EPA and AA production occurred at the incubation temperature of 25°C when the temperature shifting technique was implemented, greater yields occurred for cultures incubated for 5 days at 28°C followed by 2 days at 15°C.
