Dalwadi, M. P., Garavaglia, M., Webb, J. P., King, J. R., & Minton, N. P. (2018). Applying asymptotic methods to synthetic biology: modelling the reaction kinetics of the mevalonate pathway. Journal of Theoretical Biology, 439, doi:10.1016/j.jtbi.2017.11.022. ISSN 0022-5193

The mevalonate pathway is normally found in eukaryotes, and allows for the production of isoprenoids, a useful class of organic compounds. This pathway has been successfully introduced to Escherichia coli, enabling a biosynthetic production route for... Read More
