Cytidine is a precursor of several antiviral drugs. The pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) is primarily responsible for NADPH and 5-phospho-α-d-ribose 1-diphosphate as an important precursor of cytidine biosynthesis in Escherichia coli. To enhance cytidine production, we obtained the recombinant E. coli CYT15-gnd-prs-zwf that co-expressed the prs, zwf, and gnd(More)
Cytidine is a nucleoside molecule that is widely used as a precursor for antiviral drugs. In this study, a cytidine-producing strain Cyt18 was developed from Escherichia coli K-12 through 3-step genetic manipulation strategies. Cytidine deaminase gene (cdd) was firstly deleted from the E. coli K-12 strain to develop Cyt10. Furthermore, homoserine(More)
A major problem when pyrimidine de novo biosynthesis is used for cytidine production is the existence of many negative regulatory factors. Cytidine biosynthesis in Bacillus amyloliquefaciens proceeds via a pathway that is controlled by uridine monophosphate (UMP) through feedback inhibition of carbamoyl phosphate synthetase (CPS), the enzyme that converts(More)
