Table 3 AChE neutralized ACh stimulatory action on ALA production

From: Simultaneous improvement in production of microalgal biodiesel and high-value alpha-linolenic acid by a single regulator acetylcholine

  1. Note: ACh influence on production of ALA was reduced using AChE as an ACh inhibitor. ACh was applied at 5 μg L-1 at the initial phase of algal growth (data are presented as mean of three replicates).
