Wintergreen odor generator
The wintergreen odor generator (BBa_J45120) catalyzes the conversion of the precursor salicylic acid to the odor methyl salicylate that has a wintergreen smell. The biosynthetic device is composed of two transcriptional devices: a constitutive transcription source (BBa_R0040) and an odor enzyme generator (BBa_J45119). Odor enzyme generators take as input a transcriptional signal and produce as output an enzyme that catalyzes production of an odor from a chemical precursor.
Usage and Biology
- Supplement cultures with 2 mM salicylic acid to produce wintergreen odor.
- See BBa_J45004 for details.
