Effect of fabD overexpression in FA composition. a Enzymatic reaction catalyzed by FabD. b FA content of wt Se7942 and the fabD mutant derivative, MSM24. The different FA species are shown along the x-axis. The y-axis shows the percentage of each FA with respect to the total amount of FAs analyzed. Data are the average of at least three independent biological replicates and are represented as the mean + SD. *p < 0.05, by unpaired Student’s t test
