  • Patent number: 10358663
    Abstract: A method of producing 2,4-dihydroxybutyric acid (2,4-DHB) by a synthetic pathway that includes transforming malate into 4-phospho-malate using a malate kinase, then transforming 4-phospho-malate into malate-4-semialdehyde using a malate semialdehyde dehydrogenase, and then transforming malate-4-semialdehyde into 2,4-DHB using a DHB dehydrogenase.
