Protein coding sequences/Biosynthesis

< Back to Protein coding sequences

Biosynthetic enzymes catalyze the conversion of substrates to products. Metabolic enzymes can be combined together along with gene expression parts, such as promoters and ribosome binding sites, to construct pathways that produce or degrade useful chemicals and materials. These combinations of enzymes can reconstitute either natural or synthetic biosynthetic pathways. These enzymes have applications in specialty chemicals, biofuels, and bioremediation.
