Biosynthesis of glycolipids in E. faecalis. A Genetic organization of the bgs-locus in E. faecalis. The numbers refer to the primers described in Table 2. bgsB has a length of 1224 bp. A putative transcriptional terminator is found 10 bases downstream of bgsB. B Putative biosynthetic pathway of glycolipid synthesis in E. faecalis. C Structure of E. faecalis glycolipids. The position of 18:1 and 16:0 fatty acids has not been determined .
