Sabinene is an important naturally occurring bicyclic monoterpene which can be used as flavorings, perfume additives, fine chemicals, and advanced biofuels. Up to now, this valuable terpene is commercially unavailable since there is no applicable manufacturing process. Microbial synthesis can be a promising route for sabinene production. In this review, we summarize knowledge about the metabolic pathway and key enzymes for sabinene biosynthesis. Recent advances that have been made in production…

Improvement of sabinene tolerance of Escherichia coli using adaptive laboratory evolution and omics technologies
TLDR
It is demonstrated that overexpressions of ybcK gene of the DLP12 family, the inner membrane protein gene ygiZ, and the methylmalonyl-CoA mutase gene scpA could increase sabinene tolerance of BL21(DE3) by 127.7%, 71.1%, and 75.4%, respectively.

Microbial production of sabinene—a new terpene-based precursor of advanced biofuel
TLDR
A green and sustainable production strategy has been established for sabinene by assembling a biosynthetic pathway using the methylerythritol 4-phosphate or heterologous mevalonate pathway combining the GPP and sabinenes synthase genes in an engineered Escherichia coli strain.
Reconstruction and Evaluation of the Synthetic Bacterial MEP Pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
It was shown that the growth of a MVA pathway deficient S. cerevisiae strain could not be restored by the heterologous MEP pathway even when accompanied by the co-expression of genes erpA, hISCA1 and CpIscA involved in the Fe-S trafficking routes leading to maturation of IspG and IspH.
Engineering a mevalonate pathway in Escherichia coli for production of terpenoids
TLDR
The strains developed in this study can serve as platform hosts for the production of any terpenoid compound for which a terpene synthase gene is available, and are the universal precursors to all isoprenoids.
Identification and microbial production of a terpene-based advanced biofuel
TLDR
A framework for the identification of novel terpene-based advanced biofuels and the rapid engineering of microbial farnesyl diphosphate-overproducing platforms for the production of bio Fuels is presented.
Engineering monoterpene production in yeast using a synthetic dominant negative geranyl diphosphate synthase.
TLDR
The design described here can be readily incorporated to any dedicated yeast strain, while the developed plasmid vectors and heterozygous ERG20 deletion yeast strain can also be used as a plug-and-play system for enzyme characterization and monoterpene pathway elucidation.
