Pathways involved in ethanol, 2, 3-butanediol, lactate, acetate, formate (thin arrows), and succinate synthesis (thick arrows) in E. aerogenes. Broken arrows indicate exogenous pyruvate carboxylase and PEP carboxykinase from C. glutamicum and A. succinogenes, respectively. The gene names or locus symbols are shown in parentheses.
