Synthesis of GDP-mannose using coupling fermentation of recombinant Escherichia coli.

Summary of "Synthesis of GDP-mannose using coupling fermentation of recombinant Escherichia coli."

Glucokinase (glk), phosphomannomutase (manB), and mannose-1-phosphate guanylytransferase (manC) are needed for the biosynthesis of GDP-mannose. A recombinant E. coli strain over-expressing these three genes was constructed to produce guanosine 5'-diphosphate (GDP)-mannose, the donor of GDP-fucose, an essential substrate for synthesis of fucosyloligosaccharides. In addition, the glk, manB, and manC genes were individually cloned into the expression vector pET-22b (+) to construct three recombinant E. coli strains pET-glk, pET-manB and pET-manC, respectively. Fermentation of the recombinant strain BL21/pET-glk-manB-manC had a conversion rate of 23% from mannose to GDP-mannose under IPTG induction, while coupling fermentation of the three recombinant strains BL21/pET-glk, BL21/pET-manB, BL21/pET-manC resulted in a conversion rate of 33% under the same induction conditions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI that are a subgroup of SHIGA-TOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI. They cause non-bloody and bloody DIARRHEA; HEMOLYTIC UREMIC SYNDROME; and hemorrhagic COLITIS. An important member of this subgroup is ESCHERICHIA COLI O157-H7.

A class of toxins that inhibit protein synthesis by blocking the interaction of ribosomal RNA; (RNA, RIBOSOMAL) with PEPTIDE ELONGATION FACTORS. They include SHIGA TOXIN which is produced by SHIGELLA DYSENTERIAE and a variety of shiga-like toxins that are produced by pathologic strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI such as ESCHERICHIA COLI O157.

A species of gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria belonging to the K serogroup of ESCHERICHIA COLI. It lives as a harmless inhabitant of the human LARGE INTESTINE and is widely used in medical and GENETIC RESEARCH.

A verocytotoxin-producing serogroup belonging to the O subfamily of Escherichia coli which has been shown to cause severe food-borne disease. A strain from this serogroup, serotype H7, which produces SHIGA TOXINS, has been linked to human disease outbreaks resulting from contamination of foods by E. coli O157 from bovine origin.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat both enterotoxigenic and enteropathogenic Escherichia coli infections.
