Fig. 1

Growth and lipid profiles of N. oceanica in response to nitrogen depletion. ae Time course of biomass concentration (a), cell number (b), cell weight (c), TAG content (d), and the transcriptional expressions of NoDGAT1A and NoDGAT1B (e). –N and +N represent nitrogen depletion and nitrogen repletion, respectively. f Polar lipid contents at 48 h of nitrogen depletion. g, h Relative abundance of fatty acids in TAG sn-1/3 (g) and sn-2 (h) positions at 48 h of nitrogen depletion. C18:1 represents the mixture of C18:1n9 and C18:1n7. Data are expressed as mean ± SD (n = 3). Asterisks indicate the significant difference compared with +N (t-test, P < 0.05)
