Metabolic engineering of Ashbya gossypii for deciphering the de novo biosynthesis of γ-lactones
Abstract Background Lactones are highly valuable cyclic esters of hydroxy fatty acids that find application as pure fragrances or as building blocks of speciality chemicals. While chemical synthesis often leads to undesired racemic mixtures, microbial production allows obtaining optically pure lacto...
