*Independent stock cultures were maintained at the indicated concentration of SAN 9785 in quadruplicate. For the fatty acid profile determination the cultures were transferred to medium containing the indicated concentration of SAN 9785, harvested after ten days and assayed. Fatty acid concentration is indicated as ug per g dry biomass standard error of the mean. ND: not detectable.
