CELLULAR BIOSENSOR: ECOLITASTER Information about iGEM
Making E. coli tasting flavors
Our project for this iGEM edition consists on designing a cellular biosensor. We use E. coli as cellular chassis, using a deficient EnvZ strain. We construct two different devices (a sensor and an actuator) that are assembled using OmpR-P as a standardized mediator. The sensor device contains a receptor protein and a synthetic two-component signal transduction pathway, both implemented through new parts in the Registry. The receptor protein has been designed computationally using a ribose binding protein as a scaffold and finding the necessary mutations to change its ligand affinity towards a vanillin molecule making E. Coli tasting flavors.
