DescriptionThis is the coding sequence of dxs from Escherichia coli JM109 with added ribosome binding site (rbs). It encodes 1-deoxyxylulose-5-phosphate synthase, thiamine-requiring, which catalyses the first step in the biosynthesis of terpenoids. Overexpression of dxs has been reported to increase yields of carotenoids and other terpenoids [add reference here].
