Abstract:

A construct containing a gene operably linked to a promoter having activity in cyanobacteria, and vector and cyanobacterium comprising such construct for increasing the yield of fatty alcohols in cyanobacterium is provided.

Claims:

A construct comprising a gene operably linked to a promoter having activity in cyanobacteria, wherein said gene is selected from the group consisting of: 1) fatty acyl-CoA synthetase genes; 2) genes of which the nucleotide sequences have at least 80% identity to the sequences of the genes listed in 1), and which encode a protein having fatty acyl-CoA synthetase activity; and 3) genes of which the nucleotide sequences are capable of hybridizing with the sequences of the genes listed in 1) under stringent hybridizing conditions, and which encode a protein having fatty acyl-CoA synthetase activity
