Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The discipline of metabolic engineering was defined fifteen years ago as 'the improvement of cellular activities by manipulations of enzymatic, transport, and regulatory functions of the cell with the use of recombinant DNA technology' (Bailey 1991). Since that time, the field has witnessed a number of success stories with respect to the development of highly productive organisms, especially microbes. Initially, metabolic engineering efforts were primarily focused on improving the productivity of naturally-occurring metabolites in the target organisms, as is consistent with Bailey's original definition. More recently, the field has expanded to encompass a number of examples of introducing new enzyme activities into a host cell in order to produce non-natural products ( Nielsen 2001). Non-natural products are defined in this case as compounds that are foreign to the production organism. Thus, such compounds may still be found in other organisms (e g., plant natural products), or they may be novel, structurally distinct from those known to exist in nature."
