Bioengineered cyanobacterium supports production of succinate from CO2 [Full subscriber]

The production of biobased succinate via (bioengineered) microbes typically requires mono- or poly-saccharides as a feedstock. Researchers at the Kobe University Graduate School of Science, Technology and Innovation discovered that the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 which can produce organic acids such as succinate from CO2 not supplemented with sugars increase the yield of succinate when cyanobacteria is grown above the ideal temperature for cell growth.…
