    ..These results, together with the structural organization predicted for PfaA, suggest that this protein plays a key role at early stages of the anaerobic pathway of PUFA synthesis. ..

    ..DHA-producing E. coli strain that carries a fabH gene deletion boosts DHA production by tuning down the competing canonical biosynthesis pathway. Our approach can be used for optimization of DHA production in different organisms. ..

    ..In addition, inhibition of FabB protein by cerulenin may lead to the accumulation of malonyl-CoA, which is the substrate for DHA formation. ..
