E. coli Engineered for Triglyceride Production.

Rucker, Joanna.

Abstract: The goal of this work was to engineer Escherichia coli to synthesize and accumulate triglycerides (TG). Triglycerides, which are commonly sourced from plant oils, are substrates for products such as biodiesel, lotions, lubricants and cooking oils. A liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LCMS) method, developed to analyze the production of triglycerides by the engineered E. coli strain... read more
