a Comparison of three different isoprene synthases (Populus alba, Pueraria montana [Kudzu vine], and Populus trichocarpa) for isoprene production from recombinant Escherichia coli strains harboring the MVA pathway. b Effects of codon optimization and the strong RBS for expression of Populus trichocarpa IspS on isoprene production and cell growth. Culture was carried out in TB medium containing 2.0% (w/v) glycerol for 24 h at 30 °C. Open bars and closed bars represent the values obtained at 12 and 24 h of culture, respectively
