Anti-UV Technology Using Synthetic Biology

Extracts produced by this method have applications such as protection against skin damage, protection of physical surfaces against UV damage, and missions to space.

This technology uses extracts produced from yeast transformed with a new anti-UV DNA construct to block ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

The anti-UV DNA construct was prepared using synthetic biology and/or conventional molecular biology. Different genetic sequences, including repair proteins — such as heat shock protein (HSP), energy metabolic proteins, and other up-regulating proteins — and other synthetic gene sequences were used.
