INPNC: The ice-nucleation protein (INP) from Pseudomonas
is used by its natural host to nucleate ice formation and
is implicated in P.syringae-associated pathogenesis. INP
a truncated derivative lacking the central domain (INPNC) have been
extensively for displaying proteins on the surface of E. coli (7).
For instance, AldO and PhaZ1 have been successfully displayed on the
E.coli using INPNC (7, 15).
Park et al. have shown that when INPNC is fused to the phaZ1 gene and its signal sequence, it can serve as a suitable surface delivery and secretion device of the otherwise toxic phaZ1 gene product(15). This part was synthesized by Mr. Gene (Regensburg, Germany) with codon optimization and subsequently transferred into vector ( pSB1AK3). As it is expected that this part will be used in the context of the fusion protein, the prefix and suffix for this part are consistent with the BBF RCF-12 standard.
We have proposed to build and test a general protein secretion system modeled after that developed by Park et al. in which a fusion of INPNC and the signal sequence from the phaZ1 gene are used to secrete any target protein.
We have modified this protein to be consistent with the BBF RFC-12 Standard. We have submitted this part to the parts registry as part BBa_K265008.
signal sequence (SS) for the phaZ1 gene product of Paucimonas
lemoignei, a polyhydroxybutyrate depolymerase (15).
protein the signal sequence is cleaved between residues Ala37 and
Park et al. have showed that the fusion of the complete phaZ1
(including SS) and a truncated ice nucleation protein from Pseudomonas
syringae (BBa_K265008), could lead
expression and secretion of the phaZ1 gene product.
We propose that the signal sequence might be generally useful as a cleavage tag in secretion systems that include a membrane anchor component, such as INPNC (BBa_K265008) or OmpA (BBa_K103006). The proposed constructs would consists of a membrane anchor (INPNC or OmpA) followed by the cleavable signal sequence and finally a target protein marked for secretion.
Since we expect that this part will be used in the context of a fusion protein, we have modified this protein to be consistent with BBF RFC-12 Standard. We have submitted this part to the part registry as part BBa_K265002.
INPNC+SS: Park et al. have showed
fusion of the complete phaZ1 gene (including SS) and a
nucleation protein from Pseudomonas syringae (BBa_K265008), could lead
expression and secretion of the phaZ1 gene product (15).
We propose that this system might be generally useful for the secretion of other target proteins in E. coli and have therefore created a fusion of parts BBa_K265008 (INPNC) and BBa_K265002 (SS) which is compatible with the BBF RFC-12 Standard.
During the construction of this part, two silent mutations were introduced in the coding region of INPNC (T324A and A348T) that differ from those in part BBa_K265008.
We have submitted this part to the part registry in the BBF RFC-12 Standard as part BBa_K265009.
OmpA+SS: Since OmpA is believed to function
to INPNC and Park et al. have showed that the fusion of the
gene (including SS) and a truncated ice nucleation protein from Pseudomonas
syringae (BBa_K265008), could lead
expression and secretion of the phaZ1 gene product (15),
to test and see if OmpA's ability to secret increases when it is used
We have modified this protein to be consistent with BBF RFC-12 Standard and have submitted this part to the part registry, BBa_K265011.
OmpA: OmpA is one of the
the outer membrane of E. coli (13),it
is used as a displaying
protein on the cell surface . This part has already been documented on
registry; however, it has not been tested as a compnent of secretion
(via fusion with a target protein linked with a cleavable signal
We have modified this protein to be consistent with BBF RFC-12 Standard.
Note: “It has remained essentially unknown how proteins of E. coli outer membrane are sorted to and incorporated into this membrane” (10)
