Bacterial Lipids

Fatty acids and phospholipids occur in a wide variety of structures in nature, and the ability to alter their composition in response to environmental changes is essential for bacterial survival. While E. coli has been considered a model for lipid synthesis and metabolism in bacteria for decades, modern genome sequencing has revealed that the regulation of metabolic pathways must be investigated on a species-specific basis. Therefore, understanding basic lipid metabolism and enzyme pathways in prokaryotes needs to be based on different strains, and bacterial lipids will be studied more extensively.
