Abstract:

This invention relates to a recombinant microorganism capable of producing isoprene and isoprene production with the use of such recombinant microorganism with good efficiency. In this invention, the acetoacetyl-CoA synthase gene encoding an enzyme capable of synthesizing acetoacetyl-CoA from malonyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA and one or more genes involved in isoprene biosynthesis that enables synthesis of isoprene from acetoacetyl-CoA are introduced into a host microorganism.
