Figure 2

Characterization of lipid accumulation in P. tricornutum during increase in Nile Red fluorescence intensity (■) with respect to cell number (▲) (A). Nile Red fluorescence intensity indicating the increase in lipids is shown with the depletion of external nitrate () and phosphate () (B). Phosphate concentrations are multiplied by a factor of 10 for scaling purposes (e.g., 0.2 mM = 0.02 mM). Arrows indicate time points at which cells were harvested for RNA sequencing.
