Easy regulation of metabolic flux in Escherichia coli using an endogenous type I-E CRISPR-Cas system
Yizhao Chang, Tianyuan Su, Qingsheng Qi and Quanfeng Liang
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats interference (CRISPRi) is a recently developed powerful tool for gene regulation. In Escherichia coli, the type I CRISPR system expressed endogenously shall be easy for internal regulation without causing metabolic burden in compared with the widely used type II system, which expressed dCas9 as an additional plasmid.
