Application Comment Organism
synthesis overexpression of a mutant GES with a 5'-untranslated sequence designed for high translational efficiency, along with the additional expression of isopentenyl diphosphate isomerase, and geranyl diphosphate synthase, yields 300 mg/l/12 h geraniol and its derivatives in a shaking flask Escherichia coli
