PRODUCTION OF ISOPRENE BY METHANE - PRODUCING ARCHAEA
Document Type Article
Plasmid vectors and use of plasmid vectors in methods for producing methane and isoprene using Archaea are dis closed. Particularly, plasmid vectors that express isoprene synthase ( ispS ) are prepared and inserted into methanogens, such as Methanosarcina acetivorans , to allow for c -production of methane and isoprene. In one embodiment, the methods of the present disclosure can be used for wastewater management.
