Synthetic Promoter For Xylose-Regulated Gene Expression In Saccharomyces Yeasts

Synthetic promoters for use in Saccharomyces yeast to control gene expression in response to the presence of xylose. Upon xylose availability, the prokaryotic DNA binding protein is released from the synthetic promoter, allowing gene expression.


• These synthetic promoters will allow tunable control of gene expression for engineering Saccharomyces yeasts for efficient xylose fermentation


• Lignocellulose-based processing where it is desirable to use a S. cerevisiae strain for ethanol, advanced biofuels or renewable chemicals production
