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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
