Clean genome ecoli

  1. 1. CLEAN GENOME E. COLI –MULTIPLE DELETIONSTRAINS Gulpreet Kaur Microbial Biotechnology, Fall 2011
  2. 2. A bit of history…Fredrick Blattner: 1997 - published complete genome of E.coli-K12 strain 2002 - engineered reduced E. coli genome - developed Scarab Genomics 2006 - emergent properties of reduced
  3. 3. Why E.Coli K-12? Vast knowledge on its genomic organization Commonly used for research and metabolite production Popular strains – MG1655 and W3110
  4. 4. Why reduce the genome? Problems in using E. coli K-12 strains:  Loss of desired gene over time  Mutation of desired gene  Low protein productivity  Lack of purity in product  Batch-to-batch variations  High production costs
  5. 5. What to delete?  Backbone genome: 3.71Mb  Total genome targeted to be deleted:
  6. 6. What to delete? Genes specific for some environments Potential pathogenicity genes DNA sequence repeats Mobile DNA elements that mediate recombination events  InsertionSequences  Transposases, Integrases  Defective phage remnants
  7. 7. Outer Ring: E. coli K-12 Inner rings: (from center to outwards) 1-5: regions of E. coli K- 12 absent in other genomes 1: RS218 2: CFT073 3: S. flexneri 2457T 4: O157:H7 EDL933 5: DH10B Ring 6: Deletion targets Red: MDS12 Yellow: MDS41 Green: MDS 42 Purple: MDS43 Ring 7: Native IS elements Ring 8: Confirmation of deletion in MDS43 Red: Genome present Green: DeletionsDesign and validation of MDS
  8. 8. Comparison among strains
  9. 9. TRANSFORMATION EFFICIENCIES Efficiencies of MDS42 were twice that of MG1655
  10. 10. NO IS SEQUENCES!
  11. 11. NO IS SEQUENCES!
  12. 12. NO IS-MEDIATEDMUTAGENESIS! Adaptation of MDS41 and MG1655 to Salicin/Minimal Medium : MG1655 : MDS41
  14. 14. ONLY IS MUTAGENESIS NOTPOSSIBLE! Induction of cycA mutations in MG1655 and MDS41
  18. 18. GROWTH RATESA. MDS41 in minimal growth B. CAT expression in MDS41 andmedium MG1655 : optical density (left scale) : MG1655 : DCW (left scale) and : MDS41 duplicates : glucose concentration (right
  19. 19. CONCLUSIONSThe strains have the following: Enhanced transformation efficiency Reduced mutability Increased plasmid stability Normal growth rates Can me used as ‘chassis’ for metabolite production
