Abstract

The present invention relates to an expression vector including: nucleic acids encoding the polypeptides forming a polypeptide complex having an enzymatic activity suitable for converting acetoacetyl-CoA into acetoacetate; optionally at least one nucleic acid encoding a polypeptide having an enzymatic activity suitable for converting acetoacetate into acetone; and at least one nucleic acid encoding a polypeptide having an enzymatic activity suitable for converting acetone into isopropanol, the expression of said nucleic acids being controlled by a single constitutive promoter located upstream from the aforementioned nucleic acids.
