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

zeaxanthin synthesis operon (pBad+rbs+crtZ+plac+rbs +crtEBIY )

This part contains all five genes required, CrtEBIYZ, to produce zeaxanthin.

It is able to control the expression of crtZ by arabinose.this part applies to ①

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)
