Experimental evolution of novel regulatory activities in response to hydrocarbons and related chemicals
2010 (English)In: Handbook of hydrocarbon and lipid microbiology / [ed] Timmis, Kënneth. N; McGenity, Terry; Meer, Jan Roelof van der; Lorenzo, Victor de, Springer , 2010, 1, 1235-1245 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Bacterial regulatory proteins that control catabolism of hydrocarbons and related chemicals have evolved (or are actively evolving) towards specifically detecting compounds that signal the presence of growth substrates. Laboratory evolution of the chemical-binding and response properties of sensory-regulators has been achieved by a number of different techniques to generate novel derivatives with desired properties. Such manipulated and selected regulatory proteins are increasingly used in artificial genetic circuitry for improved biodegradation systems, biosensor construction, and in assembling regulatory cascades for synthetic biology within a wide range of biotechnological applications
