         <p class="texte"> In order to be highly efficient in the fight against the pythopathogen, our optimized bacterium has to be anchored to the fungus. Thus, we designed a chimeric protein (<a href="http://parts.igem.org/Part:BBa_K1364005"target="_blank">BBa_K1364005</a>) capable of building a <B>bridge between the bacterial peptidoglycan and the fungal chitin</B>, the main component of the pathogen’s cell wall. According to the work of the Imperial College 2010 iGEM team, we used the CWB domain of the LytC protein (coding for a N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase) to attach our chimeric protein to the <I>B. subtilis</I> cell wall. On the other side of our protein, we added the domain 4 of  GbpA from <I>Vibrio cholerae</I>, which is known to recognize chitin.
