The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent glucose-specific phosphotransferase system (PTS(Glc)) is the main glucose uptake pathway in Escherichia coli that affects both substrate assimilation and metabolism leading to the product formation. In this study, the effect of single PTS(Glc) mutation on cell growth and substrate consumption was investigated by knocking(More)
We previously engineered E. coli YL104H to efficiently produce succinate from glucose. Furthermore, the present study proved that YL104H could also co-utilize xylose and glucose for succinate production. However, anaerobic succinate accumulation using xylose as the sole carbon source failed, probably because of an insufficient supply of energy. By analyzing(More)
