We have highlighted the entry point of fatty acids into the synthesis of eicosapentaenoic acid, as well as the existence of a multiprotein complex that makes 20: 5 from 16: 0 and directs 20: 5 towards the chloroplast. This work also revealed a way to genetically induce an accumulation of oil in Nannochloropsis.
