Metabolic Engineering for
N-Acetylglucosamine Production in E. coli

NAG Pathway

Crosses indicate metabolic flux blocked by gene inactivation or deletion. Thicker lines indicate introduction and/or increase of the metabolic flux by gene over-expression. Dephosphorylation and secretion of N-acetylglucosamine-6-P are indicated by a dotted line. Gln: glutamine, GlcN: glucosamine, GlcNAc: N-acetylglucosamine.
