Effect of expression of (heterologous) elongases (FAEs/KCSs) together with the yeast intrinsic Ole1p desaturase on the concentration of fatty acids (FAs) (mg/g CDW) in the background strain CEN.PK 113-5D elo3Δ X-2::pMPC3::ACC1** X-3::IFA38::PHS1::TSC13::ACB1 (LW03). The values represent the mean ± standard deviation (SD) of three biological replicates of strains LW04 (pYX212), LW05 (pYX212::ELO2::OLE1), LW06 (pYX212::AtFAE::OLE1), LW07 (pYX212::BnKCS::OLE1), LW08 (pYX212::CaKCS::OLE1), LW09 (pYX212::LaKCS::OLE1), LW10 (pYX212::SciFAE::OLE1) and LW11 (pYX212::TmKCS::OLE1), respectively. The strains were grown for 48 h in minimal medium containing 20 g/L glucose
