Usage and Biology
FabD converts the primed malonate-CoA molecule into malonate-ACP, readying it for decarboxylation by FabH.
Overview map of FAS2 system (2).
By creating a single genetic fragment with FabD and FabZ and their promoters going in the forward and reverse direction, these two genes are easily inserted using the pCfB2909(XII-5 MarkerFree) plasmid from EasyClone kit (3).
Double gene fragment ordered from IDT was cloned using Phusion polymerase according to protocol. Insert was purified following protocol for gel electrophoresis and ThermoFischer gel purification kit, followed by assembly into linearized plasmid backbone. The constructed plasmid was transformed into E.coli, grown overnight, inoculated overnight again, followed by harvesting following protocol for ThermoFischer plasmid miniprep kit. The purified plasmid was digested to yield the linearized insertion fragment and transformed into S.Cerevisiae strain CEN.PK 102-5B along with CAS9 and gRNA plasmids.
