ABSTRACT:
Studies on the functional lipids, the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA’s) has been proceeded in various ways since it serves as a rich source for health and diet. The series of PUFA including the Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) have widespread nutritional and pharmaceutical values. This study aims to focus for a novel producer of omega -3 fatty acid from screening of various filamentous fungi. Fusarium sp., is an oleaginous microorganism which is evaluated for its potential to accumulate the microbial lipids when grown on the synthetic media. Fusarium sp., is identified through LPCB stain and monitored for the production of PUFA’s. Methyl ester of fatty acid (FAME’s) was prepared so as to estimate the concentration of omega-3. The fatty acid concentration is determined by the titrimetric method in the presence of other lipids. The omega-3 fatty acid is identified by Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) and it was found to be methyl stearate (Rf – 0.438).
