ALA production in Se7942. a Desaturation reactions needed to produce ALA in cyanobacteria. In bold, desaturase genes introduced in Se7942. b ALA content of wt Ss7002 (green bar), wt Se7942, desA and desB mutant derivatives, MSM17 (blue) and MSM26 (red), respectively. Data are the average of at least three independent biological replicates and are represented as the mean + SD. ***p < 0.001, by one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by Dunnett’s multiple comparison test with a single control, Ss7002
