Invention and Patent named for Dr. Narayan Kumar

Dr. Narayan Kumar got a Patent under his name by a recent invention which he achieved along with Prof. Ashis Das. The details are given below:


Invention Title:   Temperature Inducible Promoter Derived and Modified from Enterococcus faecium DJ1 plasmid, and its use in E.coli for production of desired protein

Name of Inventors:  Prof. Ashis Das and Dr. Narayan Kumar



The present invention relates a novel temperature inducible promoter based on that isolated from E. faecium DJ1, capable of strongly expressing a gene in prokaryote, especially in E. coli. The promoter has a strong activity and it is temperature inducible and thus, target peptide or protein can be produced at high efficiency, economically and large amounts
