Figure 4. Strategies for the improvement of retinal production via protein engineering of BCO by directed evolution (A), structure-based mutagenesis (B), d novo design of BCOs (C), optimization of metabolic pathway (MVA pathway, left; MEP pathway, right) for retinal production (top) through substrate channeling system (D), and co-factor regeneration system to increase the co-factor levels (E).
