Abstract

Yeasts of the genus <I>Lipomyces</I> are known as fat yeasts, and they store large amounts of lipids. Because the major lipid produced by <I>Lipomyces</I> is triglyceride, which can be used as a food and energy resource, the control of lipid production by <I>Lipomyces</I> sp. is an important issue. Here we report the effects of UV irradiation on lipid production in <I>Lipomyces lipofer</I> cells. UV irradiation (315–400 nm) led to a 4-fold increase in the amount of triglyceride per cell. We discovered a novel phenomenon, that UV irradiation promotes triglyceride accumulation in <I>L. lipofer</I>.
