Figure 3

GC-MS analysis of isoprenol and prenol in the cultures. By comparing with the authoritative isoprenol (a, e) and prenol (b, f), the capacities of isoprenol and prenol biosynthesis were verified in the engineered strains YY159 and YY168, respectively. YY159 produced the isoprenol as its single product (c, g), while YY168 produced a blend of isoprenol and prenol, with prenol as the dominant component (d, h). a, b, c, d, total ion chromatogram (TIC); e, f, g, h, mass spectrum.
