General description

This is a qualitative standard of bacterial acid methyl esters in methyl caproate (10 mg/mL total concentration). Use this mix to distinguish between various bacteria on the basis of their cellular fatty acid composition. For information on the chromatographic analysis of this standard, please contact Technical Services at

Short branched-chain fatty acids (BCFAs) are cheese flavour compounds, which result from the conversion of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). In Swiss cheese, the production of short BCFAs is mainly performed by Propionibacterium freudenreichii and is strain dependent. Our aim was

The River Continuum Concept implies that consumers in headwater streams have greater dietary access to terrestrial basal resources, but recent studies have highlighted the dietary importance of high-quality algae. Algae provide consumers with physiologically important omega-3 (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids
