Isobutanol Production in Engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae by Overexpression of 2-ketoisovalerate decarboxylase and Valine Biosynthetic Enzymes.

In this study, construction of isobutanol production systems was attempted by overexpression of effective 2-keto acid decarboxylase (KDC) and combinatorial overexpression of valine biosynthetic enzymes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae D452-2.

Metabolic Engineering of Clostridium cellulolyticum for Production of Isobutanol from Cellulose

Producing biofuels directly from cellulose, known as consolidated bioprocessing, is believed to reduce costs substantially compared to a process in which cellulose degradation and fermentation to fuel are accomplished in separate steps. This research presents a metabolic engineering example for the development of a Clostridium cellulolyticum strain for isobutanol synthesis directly from cellulose.
