BioRetroSynth: Biosynthesis of Rutin in E. coli


Rutin, also called rutoside, quercetin-3-rutinoside and sophorin, is a citrus flavonoid glycoside found in buckwheat, the leaves and petioles of Rheum species, and asparagus.

In the graph below, the different steps for producing rutin in E. coli by importing heterologous genes are shown. Enzymes in dotted circles correspond to putative reactions based on signatures predictions.
