INTRODUCTION:
The RNA degradosome is a multi-enzyme complex present in most bacteria that is involved in RNA metabolism, degradation of messenger
RNA, processing of structural RNA and, consequently, post-transcriptional control of gene expression. The complex consists of enzymes
RNase E, PNPase, RNA helicase B and metabolic enzymes Enolase in E. coli and Aconitase in C. crescentus.
The RNase E globular amino-terminal half specifies the endonuclease activity and RNase E is the primary catalytic component of the
complex. The carboxy-terminal half is predominantly unstructured and it functions as a macromolecular-interaction domain that contains
binding sites for other interacting enzymes of the RNA degradasome.

OBJECTIVE:
 [1] Developing chromosomal fusion RNase E – mCherry – miniSOG for localisation and structural studies in E. coli
 [2] Characterising Aconitase in C. crescentus RNA degradasome

[1] RNase E – mCherry – miniSOG:
[A]: Using an E. coli strain
genetically tagged with mCherry
at Rnase E for miniSOG fusion

[2] ACONITASE:

crescentus was
expressed in the E.

[B]: The miniSOG protein is a
new genetically encoded tag
used for labeling the proteins
which can be targeted to
different cellular locations for
light and EM imaging.

[B]: The gel band
patterns of purified
fractions indicate the
possible existence of
monomeric and
dimeric forms of
aconitase

[D]: The lambda red system
(plasmid pKD 46) allows efficient
recombination between short
homologous sequences. This
requires a high internal DNA
concentration, achievable by
electroporation.

for the correct fusion of

PERSPECTIVE:

mCherry

Created fusion RNase –
mCherry – miniSOG might
provide insight in to cellular
localisation of complex and
RNA metabolism, as well
as it’s interactions with subcellular structures using
correlative fluorescent - EM
microscopy and
crystallographic studies
