Figure 5

The effect of a mutated HMG-CoA synthase (MvaSA110G) on the production of mevalonate, isoprenol and prenol. The strain employing MvaSA110G (ISP214m) produced a lower titer of mevalonate than the strain carrying the native enzyme MvaS (ISP214) (a). And in the meanwhile, the decreased production of isoprenol (b) or prenol (c) was respectively obtained in two strains expressing the MvaSA110G (YY159 and YY168). The error bars represent the range from two independent experiments.
