Composition and Positional Distribution of Fatty Acids in Lipids from the Diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum
Eicosapentaenoic acid (20: 5) is generally considered the typical fatty acid of marine organisms. Various algae, the first link of the food chain contribute probably to the marine ecosystem of this polyunsaturated fatty acid. The marine diatom, Phaeodactylum tricornutum, contains a considerable quantity of 20: 5 In this paper we describe composition and positional distribution of fatty acids in lipid classes from this diatom.
