Trehalose is a non-reducing disaccharide which has several industrial and pharmaceutical applications. In addition, trehalose is accumulated as compatible solute in bacteria under stress conditions. Henceforth, a global picture of trehalose metabolism is prerequisite to develop novel processes for trehalose production and stress resistant bacterial strains (based on trehalose accumulation). Therefore, this review highlights how dissimilar bacteria have developed metabolic adaptation for enhanced trehalose synthesis.
