Alcohol production of yeast strains expressing avian FAR enzymes supplemented with a mixture of odd-numbered saturated fatty acids. Yeast cells expressing one of the avian FAR proteins or the empty vector control were supplemented with a mixture of 13:0, 15:0, 17:0, 19:0, extracted after 72 h incubation and synthesized fatty alcohols were analyzed by GC. Results are mean values of extractions from at least three independent yeast cultures. Following alcohol concentrations in ╬╝mol*g-1 fresh weight correspond to 100%: AdFAR1: 16.1, GgFAR1: 10.6, TaFAR1: 15.8, GgFAR2: 15.6, TaFAR2: 3.9, control: 0.0.
