1 Department of Infection Biology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK

Other culture collection numbers: -
Medium: LB-Lennox
Selection marker: /
Temperature: 37°C
Genotype: F- λ- IN(rrnD-rrnE)1 rph-1 ΔlpxM ΔwecA-wzzE(gne) Igs#atpI-gidB(CjpglB) (Source: Kay et al. (2022))
Phenotype: -
Properties: This host strain is a derivative of the Peregrine strain and can be used for bioengineering where purified products with reduced endotoxicity are desirable. Enterobacterial common antigen is no longer produced and a UDP N-acetylglucose epimerase has been chromosomally integrated increasing the availability of UDP-GalNAc. The chain length regulators from Streptococcus pneumoniae capsule have replaced the O-antigen chain length regulator of E. coli, in order to increase polymerization of plasmid expressed S. pneumoniae capsule glycans. The Campylobacter jejuni pglB oligosaccharyltransferase with a 0.1 strength Anderson promoter is integrated into the chromosome of the Peregrine strain, between atpI and gidB using CRISPR technology, for bioconjugation.
Further information: This strain is part of a versatile suite of glycoengineering strains for various downstream applications, such as glycoconjugate vaccine production.
