CD Biosynsis is committed to helping our customers develop synthetic biology strategies to create cost-effective ways to produce ribosomal peptides and break the limitations of ribosomal peptides in traditional production processes. Our expertise in synthetic biology chassis development and metabolic engineering can help our customers overcome all difficulties in the production and application of ribosomal peptides.

Advantages of Synthetic Biology-Driven Ribosomal Peptide Production

Ribosomal peptides or ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) are a large group of natural products synthesized from ribosomes and post-translationally modified, with a wide range of structural and biological activity diversity, which have a wide range of applications in the food industry, pharmaceutical industry, and agriculture fields. Traditional methods for the production of ribosomal peptides are usually based on the solid-phase synthesis, liquid-phase synthesis, and in vivo biotechnological recombination techniques, but this approach possesses many limitations, such as high production costs and low purity of the resulting products. The revolutionary technologies and innovative engineering concepts of synthetic biology have opened a new avenue for the development of microbial platforms for the production of Ribosomal Peptides. Moreover, the industrialization of synthetic biology-driven microbial production processes is an effective way to improve the functional properties of Ribosomal Peptides and reduce the production cost of Ribosomal Peptides.
