In contrast to the versatility of regulatory mechanisms in natural systems, synthetic genetic circuits have been so far predominantly composed of transcriptionally regulated modules. This is about to change as the repertoire of foundational tools for post-transcriptional regulation is quickly expanding. We provide an overview of the different types of(More)
Methane biogenesis in methanogens is mediated by methyl-coenzyme M reductase, an enzyme that is also responsible for the utilization of methane through anaerobic methane oxidation. The enzyme uses an ancillary factor called coenzyme F430, a nickel-containing modified tetrapyrrole that promotes catalysis through a methyl radical/Ni(ii)-thiolate intermediate.(More)
Automation and factorial experimental design together with cell-free in vitro transcription-translation systems offers a new route to the precise characterization of regulatory components. This now presents a new opportunity to illuminate the genetic circuitry from arcane microbial chassis, which are difficult to assess in vivo. One such host, Bacillus(More)
