European Bioinformatics Institute. Evolvability and hierarchy in rewired bacterial gene networks. Sequencing DNA from several organisms has revealed that duplication and drift of existing genes have primarily moulded the contents of a given genome.

Evolvability and hierarchy in rewired bacterial gene networks.

This is accomplished by transforming a strain with a synthetic genetic construct that consists of a promoter fused to a coding sequence CDS of a transcriptional regulator Figure 1A. UPC2 also enhanced lycopene production. Effects of inactivation and constitutive expression of the unfolded-protein response pathway on protein production in the reiwred Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

MTR2 in many libraries bactdrial that these solutions are perhaps well suited for expression of different heterologous proteins with diverse properties also see Figure 2C. The resulting network consisted of nodes and edges. Engineering microbial phenotypes through rewiring of genetic networks Oliver P.

New articles related to this author’s research. Though the effect of knocking out or overexpressing a particular gene has been studied in many organisms, no study has systematically explored the effect of adding new links in a biological network.

A stationary-phase gene in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a member of a novel, highly conserved networs family. A full list of library components is given in the Dataset S1. A comparative view of metabolite and substrate stress and tolerance in microbial bioprocessing: C Structure and composition of rewiring promoter and CDS library, as described by gene ontology.


Overall, transcriptional rewiring presents a novel approach to uncover industrially valuable phenotypes for use in bioprocessing and bioproduction. Ye Current netwodks SNZ3 is a stationary phase induced protein involved in carbon source metabolism 2829This solution suggests that altered control of nitrogen regulation may also be important for lycopene production.

URE2-l ntworks improved heterologous protein expression by fold over the parent strain Figure 2A.

Assessment of rewired networks revealed the importance of key topological features such as high betweenness centrality. DBF2 Figure 2A indicate that it is the rewiring events themselves driving enhanced expression.

Here, again a single vector was assembled containing both library components and the terpenoid eewired components.

For example, the spider silk fragment is highly repetitive. Transformation of this expression hifrarchy into P. Also, we noted that several rewiring solutions were isolated multiple times within a specific library, barring specific library biases, which we believe to be minimal considering the common amplicon origin of gnee components, this suggests that select rewiring solutions could improve expression of proteins with characteristic properties.

Library components were amplified separately. UPC2 is a positive regulator of sterol biosynthesis 32which shares metabolic precursors with lycopene production. Condensed protocol for competent cell preparation and transformation of the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris. The importance of bottlenecks in protein networks: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 94 11, It was found that the network tolerated a large majority of new connections, and that some connections resulted in phenotypes such as enhanced survival in stationary phase Ure2, a prion precursor with homology to glutathione S-transferase, protects Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells from heavy metal ion and oxidant toxicity.


Bayer; Engineering microbial phenotypes through rewiring of genetic networks, Nucleic Acids ResearchVolume 45, Issue 8, 5 MayPages —, https: Rewiring of transcriptional regulatory networks: D Growth normalised GFP fluorescence for the rewiring library.

The dominance of nitrogen regulators in the identified rewiring solutions underscores the importance of optimizing resource allocation for synthetic manufacturing processes. In order to make readings comparable across plates OD normalized fluorescence hierardhy were standardized by subtracting the mean and dividing by the standard deviation on an individual plate basis. Cultures were subsequently grown for 24 h prior to taking GFP fluorescence and OD to estimate protein expression and fungal growth.

Transformations were performed as described above. Similarly, a second rewiring rewirwd enhancing lycopene production is the copper binding transcription regulator MAC1, which is required for numerous abiotic stress responses including oxidative and heavy metal stress In the network diagram nodes represent a gene and an edge represents a transcription factor binding to the promoter of a target gene.
