The FFAs composition of the wild-type strain BL21(DE3) and the recombinant strain LL8. The BL21(DE3) mainly produced the C16 and C18 FFAs, while the LL8 produced the FFAs ranging from C6 to C18, with C14:0, C12:0, C8:0 and C16:1 FFAs being the top four components. The unsaturated (C12:1, C14:1, C16:1 and C18:1) and shorter-chain FFAs (C6-C14) accounted for 87.2% of total FFAs produced.
