Over expression of E. coli Acetyl- CoA carboxylase (ACC)sub-unit accC in E.coli to enhance fatty acid accumulation for Bio-fuel production”.

  • Source Organism: E. coli 0157:H7�

PROJECT DESCRIPTION Our gene of interest is accC gene from E. coli 0157:H7 accC gene is the biotin subunit of ACC enzyme which catalyze the biosynthesis of Malonyl CoA. Malonyl CoA controls the rate of fatty acid (Triacylglycerol) biosynthesis. TAG is the fatty acid i.e. used for the biofuel production.In this experiment we will identify if the overexpression of accC gene in E.coli might enhance the production of TAG. For this process we will chttp://openwetware.org/skins/common/images/button_bold.pnglone our gene of interest in to plasmid pSB1A3 and transform it in host E. coli. We will do SDS-PAGE for detection of protein and thin layer chromatography for the quantification of fatty acids.

Important Results and Milestones

  • keep track of your most important results and refer to the corresponding page in your notebook
  • upload important pictures (don't forget to label them! Powerpoint is very convenient). Remember: these will become quite handy later in your summary report or final presentation. If you do label and upload the pictures as soon as you got them, your summary report can be written much more effortlessly (do you usually procrastinate? This is chance to do some work before hand that frees you up for finals week).
