DNA arrays of the entire set of Escherichia coli genes were used to measure the genomic expression patterns of cells growing in late logarithmic phase on minimal glucose medium and on Luria broth containing glucose. Ratios of the transcript levels for all 4,290 E. coli protein-encoding genes (cds) were obtained, and analysis of the expression ratio data(More)
Replacement of the native fermentation pathway in Escherichia coli B with a homo-ethanol pathway from Zymomonas mobilis (pdc and adhB genes) resulted in a 30 to 50% increase in growth rate and glycolytic flux during the anaerobic fermentation of xylose. Gene array analysis was used as a tool to investigate differences in expression levels for the 30 genes(More)
Escherichia coli KO11 (parent) and LY01 (mutant) have been engineered for the production of ethanol. Gene arrays were used to identify expression changes that occurred in the mutant, LY01, during directed evolution to improve ethanol tolerance (defined as extent of growth in the presence of added ethanol). Expression levels for 205 (5%) of the ORFs were(More)
The simplicity of the fermentation process (anaerobic with pH, temperature, and agitation control) in ethanologenic Escherichia coli KO11 and LY01 makes this an attractive system to investigate the utility of gene arrays for biotechnology applications. By using this system, gene expression, glycolytic flux, and growth rate have been compared in(More)
ModE protein, a molybdate sensor/regulator, controls the transcription of genes coding for molybdate uptake (mod), molybdopterin synthesis (moa), molybdoenzymes nitrate reductase (nap) and dimethylsulfoxide reductase (dms), as well as fermentative dihydrogen production (fdhF and hyc) and respiratory nitrate reductase (narXL) in Escherichia coli. The(More)
