Table 2 Comparison of theoretical maximal IPP yields with published terpenoid yields (given as C-mol/C-mol)

From: In silico profiling of Escherichia coli and Saccharomyces cerevisiae as terpenoid factories

Organism Pathway Carbon source Maximum IPP yield (this study) Experimental IPP yield estimated from published yield
E. coli DXP glycerol+ 0.79 0.04 [59]
E. coli DXP glycerol+ 0.79 0.06 [14]
E. coli DXP + MVA glycerol+ 0.79 0.04 [60]
S. cerevisiae MVA glucose+ 0.53 0.003 [61]
S. cerevisiae MVA glucose+ 0.53 0.00006 [62]
S. cerevisiae MVA galactose 0.53 0.004 [30]
S. cerevisiae MVA glucose 0.53 0.0052 [31]
S. cerevisiae MVA glucose 0.53 0.01 [8]
S. cerevisiae MVA glucose&ethanol 0.53/0.68 0.06 [8]
S. cerevisiae MVA ethanol 0.68 0.19 [8]
  1. Experimental yields of sesquiterpenoids are partly estimated and converted into IPP yields (only to that part of IPP that has been converted to the respective terpenoid); + indicates complex media.
