GC–MS analysis of cellular lipids in single ACP mutants. a Ratios of C14–C16 molar concentrations for uninduced (black) and induced (red) strains: no vector (NO), empty vector (MT), WT E. coli ACP (EC), WT S. elongatus ACP (SE). b Fold changes of induced vs. uninduced C14:C16 ratios. The I75 W and I75Y mutants have significantly increased C14:C16 ratios as compared to expressing WT Se-ACP (*p < 0.05, two-tailed student-t test). Data represent triplicate biological measurements. Error bars are standard error of the mean (S.E.M)
