Microbial Lipid Biotechnology to Produce Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids

Xiao-JunJi1, Rodrigo Ledesma-Amaro2

College of Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Engineering, Nanjing Tech University, No. 30 South Puzhu Road, Nanjing 211816, People’s Republic of China.

Abstract

Lipids rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids are important nutrients. They are traditionally extracted from animals and plants but alternatively can be obtained from microbes through microbial lipid biotechnology. To make this process more economical, apart from strain engineering, the next frontier is through bioprocess and downstream innovation.

Keywords: microbial lipid biotechnology, polyunsaturated fatty acids, oleaginous microbe, strain engineering, fermentation, downstream technology.
