Part:BBa_K395701

Designed by: Yumiko Kinoshita   Group: iGEM10_Tokyo_Tech   (2010-10-04)

rbs+crtZ under plac promoter for double plasmids

This part contains crtZ, which works as the zeaxanthin biosynthesis pathway when add beta-carotene as a substrate.

It is necessary to add either beta-carotene or the synthesis operon. This part applies to ③ and ⑤

These parts contain crtZ (β-carotene hydroxylase) under inducible promoter control. This enzyme is responsible for the conversion of β-carotene into zeaxanthin. Our team designed some BioBricks to do this conversion. Characterization of these BioBricks has been performed in E. coli strain MG1655. (→more information)
