Effective application of whole-cell devices in synthetic biology and biocatalysis will always require consideration of the uptake of molecules of interest into the cell. Here we demonstrate that the AlkL protein from Pseudomonas putida GPo1 is an alkane import protein capable of industrially relevant rates of uptake of C7-C16 n-alkanes. Without alkL(More)
Transketolase is a proven biocatalytic tool for asymmetric carbon-carbon bond formation, both as a purified enzyme and within bacterial whole-cell biocatalysts. The performance of Pichia pastoris as a host for transketolase whole-cell biocatalysis was investigated using a transketolase-overexpressing strain to catalyse formation of L-erythrulose from(More)
