- ... As one of the most powerful biosurfactants, surfactin has extensive application prospects in numerous industrial fields. Bacillus subtilis 168 was genetically modified to produce surfactin by increasing the supply of the precursor fatty acyl-CoA by overexpressing 4′ phosphopantetheinyl transferase, medium-chain acyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) thioesterase and fatty acyl CoA ligase (encoded by sfp, ...
