The RNA-guided DNA editing technology CRISPRs (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)/Cas9 had been used to introduce double-stranded breaks into genomes and to direct subsequent site-specific insertions/deletions or the replacement of genetic material in bacteria, such as Escherichia coli, Streptococcus pneumonia, and Lactobacillus(More)
Resveratrol is a well-known triphenolic natural product present in red wine. For its contribution to human health, the demand for resveratrol as a food and nutrition supplement has increased significantly. In recent years, the rapid development of synthetic biology has promoted extensive work to increase the production of resveratrol in microbes. However,(More)
BACKGROUND Elevated cystatin C level was associated with excessive risk of cardiovascular events and mortality in the highly cardiovascular risk populations. We conducted this meta-analysis to investigate the relationship between serum cystatin C level and cardiovascular or all-cause mortality risk in the general population. METHODS We searched for all(More)
The present study was designed to identify the difference between two rapamycin biosynthetic gene clusters from Streptomyces hygroscopicus ATCC29253 and Actinoplanes sp. N902-109 by comparing the sequence and organization of the gene clusters. The biosynthetic gene cluster for rapamycin in Streptomyces hygroscopicus ATCC29253 was reported in 1995. The(More)
Shikimic acid (SA) is the key synthetic material of Oseltamivir, which is an effective drug for the prevention and treatment of influenza. In this study, to block the downstream metabolic pathway of SA, the shikimate kinase isoenzyme genes aroK and aroL were deleted by Red recombination. Moreover, the key enzyme genes aroG, aroB, tktA and aroE of SA pathway(More)
As the key starting material for the chemical synthesis of Oseltamivir, shikimic acid (SA) has captured worldwide attention. Many researchers have tried to improve SA production by metabolic engineering, yet expression plasmids were used generally. In recent years, site-specific integration of key genes into chromosome to increase the yield of metabolites(More)
L-2-aminobutyric acid (L-ABA) as a precursor for the anticonvulsant and the antituberculotic is a key intermediate in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Recently, leucine dehydrogenase (LeuDH) with NAD+ regeneration was developed for L-ABA production on a large scale. Previously, the L-ABA yield was improved by optimizing conversion conditions,(More)
BACKGROUND Valvular heart disease is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Artificial heart valves are currently the most widely accepted biomedical material. However, the material's blood compatibility is still not sufficient. Biomaterial with a good biocompatibility has not yet appeared. Our initial study was to evaluate the probable(More)
Shikimic acid (SA) is the key synthetic material for the chemical synthesis of Oseltamivir, which is prescribed as the front-line treatment for serious cases of influenza. Multi-gene expression vector can be used for expressing the plurality of the genes in one plasmid, so it is widely applied to increase the yield of metabolites. In the present study, on(More)
