One-Plasmid Systems for Blue-light-regulated Gene Expression in Prokaryotes

06.09.2012
<strong>Background</strong><br>

Protein expression systems are very widely used in the life sciences, biotechnology and medicine. Traditional strategies for recombinant protein expression involve the transformation of a gene expression vector into prokaryotic expression hosts and culturing the cells so that they express the desired protein. Using an inducible expression cassette the onset of the protein expression can be controlled by several inducer (f.e. chemical, temperature, cold).<br><br><strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer two compact plasmids for facile light regulated expression of target proteins in prokaryotic hosts. Dependent from the application, one plasmid can be used for light activated and one for light inactivated gene expression. Both plasmids are working without exogenous addition of chromophores or expensive chemical inducers and allow a specific, spatially- and temporally precise control of protein expression. A competitive advantage is the use of light as inducer especially for the production of recombinant proteins. Another advantage is the very precise control of protein expression which is very relevant for several research applications. By using standard chemical inducers a spatially and temporally precise control of protein expression is not possible.<br> <strong><br><br> <b>Benefits:</b> <ul>

<li>Both plasmids are compact and ready-to-use</li> <li>No exogenous addition of chromophores or chemical inducers is required and thus reduced production costs</li> <li>System facilitates pulsed and/or automated induction of protein expression</li> <li>Specific, spatially- and temporally-precise protein expression</li> </ul><br><br> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> European Patent Applic.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
