Unsaturated Fatty Acids Biosynthesis from Thraustochytrium

Unsaturated Fatty Acids Biosynthesis from Thraustochytrium

Thraustochytrium are unicellular fungus-like marine protists that are ubiquitous in marine environments. They significantly contribute to the synthesis of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which are essential for growth and reproduction in crustaceans' fatty acid. Thraustochytrium is a unicellular protist belonging to the Labyrinth fungus genus, characterized by the presence of a high lipid content that can replace conventional fatty acids. Thraustochytrium biomass is estimated to exceed planktonic bacteria in both coastal and marine waters. Also, they need sodium to survive, which cannot be replaced by potassium. When Thraustochytrium is cultivated under certain conditions, some Thraustochytrium can have their total weight composed of 15-25% DHA. Scientists have genetically engineered several pathways to increase the production of unsaturated fatty acids in Thraustochytrium by creating mutants, overexpressing genes, and/or introducing knocking effects.

Our Services

CD BioSciences has been providing high-quality services for many years. Customer service, continuous monitoring of market demand, and research and development activities are all key considerations for CD BioSciences in the design and manufacture of unsaturated fatty acids. CD BioSciences provides one-stop service for producing unsaturated fatty acidsfrom Thraustochytrium.

  • Thraustochytrium Strain Isolated from Marine
    CD BioSciences collects samples of bacterial beads in medium and observes them using light microscopy.
  • Fermentation of Thraustochytrium to Produce Unsaturated Fatty Acids
    CD BioSciences fluorescent staining technique to estimate the cell number of Thraustochytrium. The technique involves a reaction between a fluorescent dye (acriflavine), a sulfated cell wall, and its nucleus.
