California Institute of Quantitative Biomedical Research QB3, University of California, Berkeley, California, USA
Nat Biotechnol 27:753-9. 2009..5 g/l) without the synthetic complex. These strategies should prove generalizeable to other metabolic pathways and programmable for fine-tuning pathway flux...
- Engineering robust control of two-component system phosphotransfer using modular scaffoldsWeston R Whitaker
The University of California, Berkeley and University of California, San Francisco Graduate Program in Bioengineering, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:18090-5. 2012..Thus, we demonstrate that design principles inspired by the complex signal-transduction pathways of eukaryotes may be generalized, abstracted, and applied to prokaryotes using well-characterized parts...
- BglBricks: A flexible standard for biological part assemblyJ Christopher Anderson
Department of Bioengineering, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
J Biol Eng 4:1. 2010..These tools will provide a foundation from which to transform genetic engineering from a technically intensive art into a purely design-based discipline...
- Reprogramming control of an allosteric signaling switch through modular recombinationJohn E Dueber
Program in Biological Sciences, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143 2240, USA
Science 301:1904-8. 2003..Synthetic switch proteins were created with diverse gating behaviors in response to nonphysiological inputs. Thus, this type of modular framework can facilitate the evolution or engineering of cellular signaling circuits...
- Engineering synthetic signaling proteins with ultrasensitive input/output controlJohn E Dueber
Program in Biological Sciences, University of California, San Francisco, California 94158 2517, USA
Nat Biotechnol 25:660-2. 2007..By systematically altering the number and affinity of modular autoinhibitory interactions, we show that we can predictably convert a simple linear signaling protein into an ultrasensitive switch...
