Title
Engineering primary metabolic pathways of industrial micro-organisms
Abstract

Metabolic engineering is a powerful tool for the optimisation and the introduction of new cellular processes. This is mostly done by genetic engineering. Since the introduction of this multidisciplinary approach, the success stories keep accumulating.The primary metabolism of industrial micro-organisms has been studied for long time and most biochemical pathways and reaction networks have been elucidated. This large pool of biochemical information, together with data from proteomics, metabolomics and genomics underpins the strategies for design of experiments and choice of targets for manipulation by metabolic engineers. These targets are often located in the primary metabolic pathways, such as glycolysis, pentose phosphate pathway, the TCA cycle and amino acid biosynthesis and mostly at major branch points within these pathways. This paper describes approaches taken for metabolic engineering of these pathways in bacteria, yeast and filamentous fungi.
