Table 2 Comparing kinetic parameters and biomass composition between original and S5 under indoor simulated Dutch summer conditions

From: Sorting cells of the microalga Chlorococcum littorale with increased triacylglycerol productivity

Populations µ (day−1) P X (g l−1 day−1) PTAG (g l−1 d−1) YTAG (g mol−1)
Original 0.52 ± 0.08a 1.03 ± 0.19a 0.2 ± 0.02a 0.16 ± 0.01a
S5 0.48 ± 0.03a 1.08 ± 0.08a 0.4 ± 0.06b 0.32 ± 0.03b
  Starch (g g−1) Carbs (g g−1) Polar lipids (g g−1) TAG (g g−1)
Original 0.25 ± 0.04a 0.20 ± 0.04a 0.07 ± 0.01a 0.21 ± 0.02a
S5 0.29 ± 0.01a 0.19 ± 0.05a 0.06 ± 0.01a 0.30 ± 0.04b
  1. The kinetic parameters are: specific growth rate (µ), biomass productivity (P x ), TAG productivity (Ptag) and TAG yield (YTAG). All analyzed biomass components are expressed as relative to biomass dry weight (g g−1 DW−1). Error bars in the table indicate the standard deviation. Superscript letters represent the results of the statistical analyses between Original and S5. Different letters indicate statistical significance (ANOVA, p < 0.05)
