The CoA-dependent butanol pathways used for the production of propane in E. coli. The four CoA-dependent butanol producing synthetic routes (atoB-adhE2 route, atoB-TPC7 route, nphT7-adhE2 route and nphT7-TPC7 route) explored for butanol production in E. coli are shown. AdhE2, aldehyde-alcohol dehydrogenase; ADO, aldehyde deformylating oxygenase; Ahr, aldehyde reductase; AtoB, acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase; CAR, carboxylic acid reductase; Crt, 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydratase; Hbd, 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase; NphT7, acetoacetyl CoA synthase; Ter, trans-2-enoyl-CoA reductase; YciA, acyl-CoA thioester hydrolase.
