Conjugated Linoleic Acid Production by Bifidobacteria: Screening, Kinetic, and Composition
UV absorbance () of the lipophilic extracts that were obtained from the supernatants of 24 h MRS-LA cultures of bifidobacteria. (a) Relationship between and total CLA concentration in the supernatant in a selection of 34 strains. (b) Screening of 127 Bifidobacterium strains. Boxes represent the range between 25th and 75th percentiles and the line inside represents the median. Whiskers denote the range between 10th and 90th percentiles and asterisks represent outlier values. Strains numbers are in brackets.
