Design of an ectoine-responsive AraC mutant and its application in metabolic engineering of ectoine biosynthesis.

Abstract

Advanced high-throughput screening methods for small molecules may have important applications in the metabolic engineering of the biosynthetic pathways of these molecules. Ectoine is an excellent osmoprotectant that has been widely used in cosmetics. In this study, the Escherichia coli regulatory protein AraC was engineered to recognize ectoine as its non… (More)
