A bacterium that has three pathways to regulate membrane lipid fluidity

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Well-studied bacteria such as Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli each have only a single pathway for synthesis of the unsaturated fatty acids required to make functional membrane lipids. In marked contrast, unsaturated fatty acid synthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa proceeds by three distinct pathways.
