Astaxanthin production in fed-batch fermentation. a Profile of astaxanthin yield (pink), astaxanthin titer (red), glucose (blue), ethanol (purple) and cell density (green) during fermentation with strain SyBE_Sc2110M3. The error bars represent standard deviation calculated from duplicate experiments. “astaxanthin yield” was determined as “the astaxanthin content in single cell” with unit mg/g DCW; “astaxanthin titer” was determined as “the astaxanthin concentration in bioreactor” with unit mg/L. b The trend of carotenoid composition (the content (mg/g DCW) of a particular carotenoid to the total carotenoid content (mg/g DCW) in single cell, resented in %) in fermentation product. Astaxanthin, zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin, lycopene and β-carotene were labeled by red, blue, green, yellow and orange, respectively
