Complete Genome Sequence of the Engineered Escherichia coli SHuffle Strains and Their Wild-Type Parents

Genome Announc. 2016 Mar 31;4(2):e00230-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00230-16.


SHuffle strains are genetically engineeredEscherichia colistrains that are capable of oxidizing cysteines within proteins to form disulfide bonds. Here we present the complete genome of both the K-12 and B versions of SHuffle strains along with their parental ancestors. These strains have been of significant use to both the general scientific community and the biotech industry, interested in producing novel disulfide-bonded proteins that were hitherto unable to be expressed in standardE. coliexpression strains.
