Target Binding Module

Our decision to pursue colorectal carcinoma suppression arose from two key points obtained from preliminary research: 1) bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) suppresses the growth of colon cancer cell growth in vivo, and 2) the phage display peptide RPMrel confers specific and preferential binding to non-differentiated colon cancer cells......Click to see more

Anti-tumor Molecule Secretion Module

As our team objective is to provide a specific and efficient drug for Colon cancer, the way of drug synthesis and releasing is a significant part of our whole project. Hence this module is focusing on the production and delivery of anti-tumor to see more

Regulation and Control Module

Our module aims at regulating our synthetic bacteria B. hercules. We first introduce a xylose inducible promoter, which can help us control the timing of BMP-2 expression. Our choice of xylose as an inducer stems from its induction efficiency, its little existence and low absorption rate in here to see more
