Yeast cell factories for fine chemical and API production

  title={Yeast cell factories for fine chemical and API production},
  author={Beate Pscheidt and Anton Glieder},
  journal={Microbial Cell Factories},
  pages={25 - 25}
This review gives an overview of different yeast strains and enzyme classes involved in yeast whole-cell biotransformations. A focus was put on the synthesis of compounds for fine chemical and API (= active pharmaceutical ingredient) production employing single or only few-step enzymatic reactions. Accounting for recent success stories in metabolic engineering, the construction and use of synthetic pathways was also highlighted. Examples from academia and industry and advances in the field of… CONTINUE READING
