A comparison of raspberry ketone biosynthesis in vitro and in vivo identifies pathway limitations. A Biosynthetic pathway for raspberry ketone and Kcat values are referenced within the main text. Intermediates quantified throughout LC–MS include L-tyrosine (white box), p-coumarate (yellow box), HBA (orange box) and raspberry ketone (red box). B EcoFlex refactoring of the raspberry ketone pathway. See methods for details of growth conditions. Data and error bars (standard deviation) is representative of three biological repeats
