Metabolic Engineering: Principles and Methodologies 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 construction of chemical substances, fuels, fabrics, prescribed drugs, and drugs on the genetic point. The field's novelty is within the synthesis of molecular biology options and the instruments of mathematical research, which permit rational collection of pursuits for genetic amendment via measurements and regulate of metabolic fluxes. the target is to spot particular genetics or environmental manipulations that bring about advancements in yield and productivities of biotechnological strategies. Key beneficial properties of the e-book are pathway integration and the focal point on metabolic flux as a primary determinant of mobile body structure. The e-book retains mathematical complexity to a minimal, and offers a word list of organic phrases to facilitate use of the publication by means of a broader spectrum of readers. an online web page exists to speak updates of the codes and homework difficulties. Key good points * Demonstrates metabolic engineering in motion with a variety of examples of pathway amendment * contains tools for selecting key enzymes in metabolic networks * incorporates a finished overview of metabolic biochemistry * Discusses metabolic law on the gene, enzyme, operon, and cellphone degrees * Explains suggestions of stoichiometry, kinetics, and thermodynamics of metabolic pathways * Minimizes mathematical complexity * hyperlinks to an internet web page to speak updates of the software program code and homework difficulties

The fluxes of this network and, especially, variations caused by burn injuries and the introduction of mediators such as cytokines and hormones must be explained through enzyme kinetics and metabolite modulation. Finally, key metabolic pathways in hepatocyte cell culture systems should be identified under normal conditions, as well as conditions of perturbations stimulated by the use of cytokines and combinations of stress hormones. Differences between the two cases would provide invaluable information about in vivo enzymatic kinetics and metabolite modulation of the function of the entire organ.

Obviously the resolution of fluxes that can be determined by extracellular methods alone is limited. Additional fluxes and f o r flux split ratios can be observed by introducing more measurements, particularly those obtained by making use of isotopic labels. Several examples that illustrate how material balances, radioactive labels, spectroscopic methods, and measurements from gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) can be applied for the experimental determination of fluxes are discussed in Chapter 9.
