Balloon Bacteria : Chiba 2006
The light in the morning leaking from a gap between the curtains... this morning lights calls and awakes the E. coli.
The E. coli become bigger and bigger like BALLOON!!!
→World first bacteria that swells by lights.!!!
The movement of the E. coli can be obvered with the naked eyes !
"Big" E. coli is easily sorted by FACS !
Make much more proteins/cell !
The E. coli doesn't have photoreceptor. But...
We have Cph8(utwxas/uCSF;iGEM2005)in our hand
The E. coli divides the cells by forming "partition". So...
'Expression of the enzyme in septem formation is knocked-down.
E. coli rather "extend" due to the action of RodA. So...
We make inducible RodAmut.
- We made inducible rodAmut.
- We made CI inverter and compared it.
