Design Notes

BBa_C0040 TetR Protein is based on the TetR sequence from Elowitz's repressilator. It has been modified to include a rapid degradation LVA tail, and includes the BioBrick standard assembly head and tail restriction sites. The RBS has been removed. The stop codon has been changed from TAA to a double stop codon TAATAA.
