Metabolic Engineering by Gregory N. Stephanopoulos, Aristos A. Aristidou, Jens

By Gregory N. Stephanopoulos, Aristos A. Aristidou, Jens Nielsen

Metabolic engineering is a brand new box with functions within the creation of chemical substances, fuels, fabrics, prescription drugs, and drugs on the genetic point. The field's novelty is within the synthesis of molecular biology thoughts and the instruments of mathematical research, which enable rational number of ambitions for genetic amendment via measurements and keep an eye on of metabolic fluxes. the target is to spot particular genetics or environmental manipulations that bring about advancements in yield and productivities of biotechnological processes.

Key positive factors of the publication are pathway integration and the point of interest on metabolic flux as a basic determinant of mobilephone body structure. The booklet retains mathematical complexity to a minimal, and gives a thesaurus of organic phrases to facilitate use of the publication by means of a broader spectrum of readers. an internet web page exists to speak updates of the codes and homework problems.

  • Demonstrates metabolic engineering in motion with quite a few examples of pathway modification
  • Includes equipment for choosing key enzymes in metabolic networks
  • Contains a complete evaluate of metabolic biochemistry
  • Discusses metabolic law on the gene, enzyme, operon, and cellphone levels
  • Explains suggestions of stoichiometry, kinetics, and thermodynamics of metabolic pathways
  • Minimizes mathematical complexity
  • Links to an internet web page to speak updates of the software program code and homework problems

The enormous structural diversity and complexity of these biomolecules is impressive. Although the actual biological roles of each of these metabolites in the native producing organisms (primarily actinomycetes) are unclear, an extraordinary variety of pharmacological properties have been associated with naturally occurring polyketides. Widely used polyketides include antibacterials (erythromycin, tetracycline, rifamycin), antifungals (amphotericin), anti-cancer agents (doxorubicin), immunosuppressants (FK506, rapamycin), cholesterol lowering agents (lovastatin, compactin), animal health products (avermectin, tylosin, monensin), and agrochemicals (spinosyn).
