Note:

1.1.1 - Toward the long-term goal of developing a novel bioprocess that converts short-chain hydrocarbons into butanol or higher value products, here we aim to establish functional expression of putative alkylsuccinate synthases, along with their partner ┬┐activating enzymes┬┐ (activases), in a microbial host amenable to metabolic engineering (E. coli).
