Butanol Production Using Engineered Stremptomyces Coelicolor

Anthony Vortherms (Inventor), Joshua Lensbouer (Inventor), Robert Doyle (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

A method of producing butanal by optimizing the growth of Streptomyces using cellulose as food source, overexpressing a key ‘gate’ enzyme in butyric acid/butyraldehyde production, and knocking out the isobutyryl-CoA synthase gene to shunt the pathway. Optionally, the produced butanal can be isolated and converted into butanol.
