  1. doi request reprint Expanding the synthetic biology toolbox: engineering orthogonal regulators of gene expression
    Christopher V Rao
    Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Urbana, IL 61801, United States
    Curr Opin Biotechnol 23:689-94. 2012
    ..While our toolbox is still spare, the situation is rapidly changing. This opinion discusses some recent approaches and open challenges in designing orthogonal regulators of gene expression in bacteria...

    Christopher V Rao
    Department of Bioengineering, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
    Phys Biol 2:148-58. 2005
    ..While specific mechanisms are different, the underlying principles of phosphatase localization in E. coli and B. subtilis appear to be the same...

    Christopher V Rao
    Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Urbana, IL 61801, USA
    Contrib Microbiol 16:33-64. 2009
    ..The one shared with E. coli, the receptor methylation system, is vastly different, as is the mechanism for conveying signals across the membrane...
  4. pmc FliZ induces a kinetic switch in flagellar gene expression
    Supreet Saini
    Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Urbana, Illinois 61801, USA
    J Bacteriol 192:6477-81. 2010
    ..To understand its role in flagellar assembly, we investigated how FliZ affects gene expression dynamics. We demonstrate that FliZ participates in a positive-feedback loop that induces a kinetic switch in class 2 gene expression...
  5. pmc Role of the mar-sox-rob regulon in regulating outer membrane porin expression
    Lon M Chubiz
    Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, 600 S Mathews Ave, Urbana, IL 61801, USA
    J Bacteriol 193:2252-60. 2011
    ..Finally, we found that the reduction in OmpF expression in a tolC mutant is due primarily to Rob. Collectively, this work further clarifies the coordinated role of MarA and Rob in regulating the expression of the outer membrane porins...
