A FabT mutation impacts the membrane fatty acid (FA) composition. Lipids are composed of FA. The effects of the FabT mutation on membrane FA composition should also alter phospholipid metabolism. WT and mFabT strains were grown as 200 ml cultures in THY or THY-Tween until OD600 = 0.4 - 0.5. Lipid extractions and identifications were performed as described 1-4. Lipid separation was realized by normal phase HPLC (U3000 ThermoFisher Scientific) using a Inertsil Si 5μm column (150 x 2.1 mm I.D.) from GL Sciences Inc (Tokyo, Japan). Lipids were quantified using a Corona-CAD Ultra and identified by mass-spectrometry negative ionization and MS2/MS3 fragmentations (LTQ-Orbitrap Velos Pro). The adducts observed for molecular ions were: CH3COO- for MGDG, CH3COO- and H- for DGDG, H- for PG and CL. All raw data from MS/MS fragmentations can now be accessed in MZML open source format. This analysis was repeated on 3 independent experiments. 1-Kenanian, G. et al. Permissive Fatty Acid Incorporation Promotes Staphylococcal Adaptation to FASII Antibiotics in Host Environments.
