  • Native to propionibacteria, the Wood–Werkman cycle enables propionate production via succinate decarboxylation. Current limitations in engineering propionibacteria strains have redirected attention toward the heterologous production in model organisms. Here, we report the functional expression of the Wood–Werkman cycle in Escherichia coli to enable propionate and 1‐propanol production. The initial proof‐of‐concept attempt showed that the cycle can be used for production. However, production… CONTINUE READING
