Contents and composition of fatty acid derivatives in the mutant and the wild-type Synechocystis. (A) Growth curves of WT, Syn-D08, Syn-FQ52, Syn-FQ52D08, and Syn-FQ52D0809; (B) Fatty alcohol production in the Synechocystis mutant strains; (C) Total free fatty acid production in Synechocystis WT and mutant strains. Error bars indicate standard deviation (n = 3). WT: the wild-type strain of Synechocystis; Syn-D08: the strain with deletion of sll0208; Syn-FQ52: the strain with expression of maqu_2220; Syn-FQ52D08: the strain with deletion of sll0208 and expression of maqu_2220; Syn-FQ52D0809: the strain with expression of maqu_2220 and double knockout of sll0208 and sll0209.
