Effect of the fadD deletion on FA composition. a Enzymatic reaction catalyzed by FadD. FadD is an acyl-CoA synthetase that loads free FAs on CoA. “R” represents the hydrocarbon chain. b FA content of wt Se7942 (green bars) and the fadD mutant derivative, MSM42 (cyan bars). Data are the average of at least three independent biological replicates and are represented as the mean + SD. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, by unpaired Student’s t test
