From: Heterologous co-expression of a yeast diacylglycerol acyltransferase (ScDGA1) and a plant oleosin (AtOLEO3) as an efficient tool for enhancing triacylglycerol accumulation in the marine diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum

Assessing the effect of expressing ScDGA1 in Pt4 on growth and lipid accumulation. Growth profiles for these lines are based on cell concentration (a) and chlorophyll a content (b). Data points on the profiles represent mean values from two independent studies, where in each study there were two biological replicates. Lipid yield in the lines is shown as maximum lipid yield obtained from total lipids and TAGs (c) from day 7 of culture when transformants showed the highest TAG levels. EV empty vector, TAG triacylglycerol, WT wild type. Raw data for growth profiles and lipid yields can be obtained from Additional file 14
