Intracellular Light-Activation of Riboswitch Activity

ChemBioChem, 15(9), 1346–1351.

By: S. Walsh n, L. Gardner n, A. Deiters n & G. Williams n

author keywords: chemical biology; photocontrol; riboswitches; RNA; synthetic biology
MeSH headings : Cell Membrane Permeability; Gene Expression Regulation / drug effects; Gene Expression Regulation / radiation effects; Intracellular Space / drug effects; Intracellular Space / genetics; Intracellular Space / radiation effects; Ligands; Molecular Structure; Riboswitch / drug effects; Riboswitch / genetics; Riboswitch / radiation effects; Structure-Activity Relationship; Theophylline / chemistry; Theophylline / pharmacology; Ultraviolet Rays
TL;DR: By combining a riboswitch with a cell‐permeable photocaged small‐molecule ligand, an optochemical gene control element was constructed that enabled spatial and temporal control of gene expression in bacterial cells. (via Semantic Scholar)

2011 journal article

Photochemical control of bacterial signal processing using a light-activated erythromycin

MOLECULAR BIOSYSTEMS, 7(9), 2554–2557.

By: L. Gardner n, Y. Zou n, A. Mara n, T. Cropp* & A. Deiters n

MeSH headings : Anti-Bacterial Agents / pharmacology; Bacterial Proteins / genetics; Bacterial Proteins / metabolism; Drug Resistance, Bacterial / drug effects; Drug Resistance, Bacterial / genetics; Erythromycin / pharmacology; Escherichia coli / genetics; Escherichia coli / metabolism; Escherichia coli / radiation effects; Exoribonucleases / genetics; Exoribonucleases / metabolism; Light; Photochemistry / methods
TL;DR: This work engineered the MphR(A)/promoter system to enable photochemical activation of gene expression in E. coli, and applied this photochemical gene switch to the construction of a light-triggered logic gate, aLight-controlled band-pass filter, as well as spatial and temporal control of geneexpression.
