The Redoxilator & the user fusion standard

DTU iGEM team 2009

2009 was the first year Denmark participated in the iGEM compitition. The 2009 team came in strong and won a Gold Medal for their project: 

The Redoxilator & the USER Fusion Standard 

Project Description 

By in silico design and computer modelling followed by gene synthesis, we have constructed a molecular NAD+/NADH ratio sensing system in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The sensor works as an inducible transcription factor being active only at certain levels of the NAD+/NADH ratios. By the coupling of a yeast optimized fast degradable GFP, the system can be used for in vivo monitoring of NAD+/NADH redox poise.
