..This family is extended by several new members and subdivided into four groups. fadD is assigned to a subgroup that does not include long chain acyl-CoA synthetases from eukaryotic organisms. ..

..However, the Mar system could modestly influence the level of slp expression during the transition from exponential to stationary growth phase. Accumulation of Slp leads to a small increase in sensitivity to chloramphenicol. ..
