Methionine, an essential amino acid, holds paramount significance in the realm of biology and biochemistry. This sulfur-containing amino acid plays a pivotal role in protein synthesis and diverse metabolic pathways. As a key component of enzymes and proteins, methionine serves as a fundamental building block for cellular functions across various organisms. Its indispensability in life processes underscores the significance of understanding its biosynthesis and potential applications in scientific research.

The synthesis of methionine can occur through both biological and chemical pathways. In biological systems, methionine biosynthesis transpires via a multistep enzymatic process, predominantly in microorganisms and plants. Homocysteine, an intermediate in the transsulfuration pathway, serves as the precursor for methionine biosynthesis. In this pathway, the enzyme cystathionine β-synthase catalyzes the conversion of homocysteine to cystathionine, which is further converted to cysteine. Methionine is then synthesized from cysteine in a subsequent series of enzymatic reactions.
Strain engineering for methionine primarily involves the following steps:
