  1. The kinetic parameters are: specific growth rate (µ) and biomass productivity (P x ), both under growth conditions (between t = 0 and t = 2). TAG productivity (Ptag) and lipid fluorescence accumulation rate (BPr) consider the whole N-starvation period (t = 2 to t = 8), while lipid fluorescence per cell was measured considering the values at the end of the starvation phase (t = 8). All analyzed biomass components are expressed as relative to biomass dry weight (g g−1 DW−1). Standard variation of measurements is not depicted because the technical error was always around 5 %
