- ... The aim of this study is to demonstrate that rebalancing of metabolic fluxes at acetyl-CoA branch node can substantially improve the titer and productivity of hexanoic acid in recombinant Escherichia coli strains. First, a hexanoic acid-producing E. coli strain was constructed by expressing genes encoding β-ketothiolase (BktB) from Cupriavidus necator and acetyl-CoA transferase (ACT) from Megaspha ...
