- ... In this study, the native redox cofactor regeneration system in Escherichia coli was engineered for the production of butyric acid. The synthetic butyrate pathway, which regenerates NAD+ from NADH using butyrate as the only final electron acceptor, enabled high-yield production of butyric acid from glucose (83.4% of the molar theoretical yield). The high selectivity for butyrate, with a butyrate/a ...
