E. coli strain ALS1074
NEW

Invented by Mark Eiteman

Info

Catalogue Number 153945
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Escherichia coli cells cannot metabolize xylose but can accumulate lactic acid.
Classification Escherichia coli
Bacterial Resistance Chloramphenicol
Relevance Microbial fermentation processes are used to generate a myriad of comedic chemicals representing market segments valued in the billions of dollars. Microbial metabolic pathways are not though, naturally optimal for the generation of a desired chemical, rather they have evolved for the benefit of the organism. Metabolic engineering is the targeted and rational alteration of metabolism, and it involves the redirection of intra-cellular processes to generate a new product or a product in much higher yields and/or faster rates. UGA researchers have developed a collection of engineered E. coli strains that are capable of (i) producing pyruvate, (ii) used in the co-fermentation – at the same rate - of mixed pentoses and hexoses, or (iii) reducing the formation of acetate by-product of fermentations, under different metabolic conditions. These strains are optimal starting points for the development of novel derivative strains for industrial use
Genomic Feature MG1655 ΔxylA748::(FRT) ΔpflB::Cam
