    Features Of Our Project

  • Artificial Organelle(Intracellular Compartment)

    We designed an artificial prokaryotic membranous organelle which is capable of anchoring proteins, opening up new possibilities for intracellular biochemistry reactions.

  • RNA Guardian

    We took advantage of the 3D structure of RNA, using ribosomes as a barrier to stabilize RNA.

  • Microfluidic

    We used Microfluidic Technology to detect the magnetism of our magnetic bacteria, Magnetospirillum Magneticum.

  • Preserving mamAB genes

    We preserved Magnetospirillum Magneticum AMB-1 mamAB genes in E.coli, prevented the genes lose when AMB-1 strain was cultured in high oxygen partial pressure environment.

Putting biological resources into production has now become a hot topic since the development of technology and the draining of natural resources. For example, research about biofuel and biochemistry is now flourishing. But biological products have drawbacks of being inefficient and not broad-spectrum. Inspired by eukaryotic membranous organelles, we aim to construct a prokaryotic membranous organelle to realize division of work inside the cell and improve the efficiency of production. How could a membrane be constructed in a Prokaryote? The answer may lie in this species: Magnetosprillum Magneticum, which can form a natural intracellular membrane. But this bacteria is slow-growing and requires demanding culture conditions, so the purpose of our project is to reconstruct the magnetosome membrane in E.coli, creating better conditions for efficient biological production.
