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

Fig. 2

The impact of AtOLEO3 on growth and lipid accumulation in Pt4. a Localization of AtOLEO3-YFP construct into LDs in Pt4. Growth profiles for the transgenic lines based on cell concentration (b) and chlorophyll a content (c). The data points on these profiles represent mean values from three independent studies, where in each study there were two biological replicates. d The impact of ScDGA1 on lipid yield is shown as maximum lipid yield obtained from total lipids and TAGs. Yields were obtained from day 14 of culture; where transformants showed the highest TAG levels. EV empty vector, TAG triacylglycerol, WT wild type. Scale bar 5 µm. Raw data for growth profiles and lipid yields can be obtained from Additional file 14
