Scientists Build A Novel Menaquinone-4 Biosynthetic Pathway in Pichia pastoris[Oct 16, 2019]

Recently, the research team of ZHENG Zhiming in Hefei Institutes of Physical Science constructed a novel VK2 biosynthetic pathway in Pichia pastoris through the concepts of synthetic biology. They realized heterologous expression of aromatic prenyltransferase HsUBIAD1, which has the ability to catalyze the biosynthesis of MK-4 by the isopentenyl receptor VK3.
