Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to newly identified genes that encode proteins that are involved in the synthesis of L-ascorbic acid (hereinafter also referred to as Vitamin C). The invention also features polynucleotides comprising the full-length polynucleotide sequences of the novel genes and fragments thereof, the novel polypeptides encoded by the polynucleotides and fragments thereof, as well as their functional equivalents. The present invention also relates to the use of said polynucleotides and polypeptides as biotechnological tools in the production of Vitamin C from microorganisms, whereby a modification of said polynucleotides and/or encoded polypeptides has a direct or indirect impact on yield, production, and/or efficiency of production of the fermentation product in said microorganism. Also included are methods/processes of using the polynucleotides and modified polynucleotide sequences to transform host microorganisms. The invention also relates to genetically engineered microorganisms and their use for the direct production of Vitamin C.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des gènes nouvellement identifiés codant des protéines impliquées dans la synthèse d'acide L-ascorbique (appelé vitamine C par la suite). L'invention concerne également des polynucléotides contenant des séquences de longueur intégrale de nouveaux gènes, des fragments de ces polynucléotides, et des polypeptides codés par ces polynucléotides et fragments, ainsi que leurs équivalents fonctionnels. La présente invention concerne également l'utilisation de ces polynucléotides et polypeptides en tant qu'outils biotechnologiques dans la production de vitamine C à partir de micro-organismes. Une modification desdits polynucléotides et/ou polypeptides codés a un impact direct ou indirect dans le rendement, la production et/ou l'efficacité de la production du produit de fermentation dans lesdits micro-organismes. L'invention concerne également des procédés d'utilisation de ces polynucléotides et polypeptides pour transformer des micro-organismes hôtes. L'invention concerne également des micro-organismes génétiquement modifiés et leur utilisation dans la production directe de vitamine C.
