Serine Biosynthesis Solution

Online Inquiry

Serine is an amino acid currently used in the cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and medical industry. The estimated annual production of serine is between 300–1,000 tons (Leuchtenberger et al., 2005). Additionally, the compound has been identified as one of the top 30 most interesting building block biochemical, because of its potential industrial uses (Werpy et al., 2004). If the production cost can be reduced, a significantly larger market may therefore open up. The current production is based on conversion of glycine and methanol using resting cells (Hagishita et al., 1996), where methylotrophs convert methanol to formaldehyde and transfer the CH2-OH unit of the molecule to glycine using serine hydroxymethyltransferase (glyA). In this process, around 90% of glycine supplied is converted to serine, taking 5 days to complete. Glycine is significantly more expensive than glucose leading to a high production cost of L-serine.

With a deep understanding of the serine biosynthesis pathway and expertise in strain engineering, our service aims to provide cutting-edge solutions for various applications in the field of biotechnology and pharmaceutical research.

What is the serine biosynthesis pathway?

The serine biosynthesis pathway is a complex metabolic pathway that plays a fundamental role in the synthesis of serine. Serine is a vital building block for various biological processes and is essential for the growth and development of living organisms. The pathway involves a series of enzymatic reactions that convert precursor molecules into serine. By comprehensively understanding and manipulating this pathway, we can optimize serine production through strategic strain engineering and metabolic engineering approaches. This enables us to design and develop microbial strains that are highly efficient in converting precursors into serine, leading to enhanced production yields and overall process efficiency.
