Squalene is a natural organic compound that is a precursor to many important biochemicals in living organisms. It is commonly found in plants, animals, and microorganisms. Squalene plays a crucial role in various biological processes and has numerous applications in industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and nutraceuticals.
The biosynthesis of squalene involves a series of enzymatic reactions that occur within living organisms. Starting from simpler molecules, the pathway progresses through several steps, ultimately leading to the production of squalene. Understanding this pathway is crucial for manipulating and optimizing squalene production.
By studying the squalene biosynthesis pathway, we can identify key enzymes and genes involved in the synthesis of squalene. This knowledge allows us to target specific steps or enzymes within the pathway for genetic modification, enhancing the production of squalene in microorganisms. Understanding the biosynthesis pathway also enables us to optimize metabolic pathways and improve the efficiency of squalene production.
