Escherichia coli Polyphosphate Kinase Enzyme

This part is a protein generator device producing the Polyphosphate Kinase (PPK) gene from Escherichia coli.

Usage and Biology

PPK produces polyphosphate, more specifically PPK catalyzes the reversible conversion of the γ-phosphate of ATP to the end of the polyphosphate chain (Akiyama et al., 1992). This enzyme is responsible for the formation of long chain polyphosphate molecules (up to a thousand orthophosphate residues long) - see illustration below.

The E. coli PPK coding sequence was derived from the pBC29 plasmid, published by Akiyama et al., 1992. iGEM York 2015 obtained pBC29 with Dr Jay Keasling's kind assistance.

iGEM2019_Nanjing China Experiment

This year our team develops a simple solo medium-copy plasmid-based polyphosphate kinase (PPK1) overexpression strategy for achieving maximum intracellular polyphosphate accumulation, so the data can provide some reference to this part.

To test whether the C. f reundii derivative that wasconstructed on the basis of the solo medium-copy strategy could perform well in uptaking of exogenous Pi from the SMW, we compare DH5a, DH5a-MDPP and CF-MCPP

Ps: SMW means Synthetic municipal wastewater

DH5a-MDPP means dual-plasmid which contain high and medium copy DH5a ppk in DH5a

CF-MCPP means solo medium-copy C. f reundii ATCC8090 ppk in C. f reundii ATCC8090

DH5a-HCPP means solo high-copy DH5a ppk in DH5a

CF-MDPP means dual-plasmid which contain high and medium copy C. f reundii ATCC8090 ppk in C. f reundii ATCC8090
