Goettingen, Germany, July 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- NIZO food research has developed and successfully used in different projects newly constructed secretion vectors for the Gram-positive gene expression system NICE®. This expression system is making use of the dairy bacterium Lactococcus lactis and its regulation mechanism for the production of the antibiotic peptide nisin, the NIsin Controlled gene Expression system (NICE). The NICE® system is already used as a dedicated expression system by many labs all around the world. With these new secretion vectors for NICE®, MoBiTec expands its rich portfolio of non-E. coli based expression vectors and systems and will offer the technology to its customer base and academic researchers all around the world. Thus, researchers who wish to use NICE® technology for research purposes are welcome to address their requests to MoBiTec. Customers who wish to use NICE® technology to produce commercial products are invited to direct their requests to NIZO directly in order to obtain a license.
Other non-E. coli expression systems offered by MoBiTec involve e.g. Bacillus megaterium and Bacillus subtilis as expression hosts.
