Process measurement characterisation of LasR by Shanghaitech iGEM 2017

Group: Shanghaitech 2017

We improved this part by characterising the crosstalk between LasR and non-cognate AHLs. Comparing with ‘Imperial College London iGEM 2016’ team, this year we have done two more experiments for improving this part:

  • 1) We test crosstalk with two new kinds of AHL molecules – Tra 3OC8-HSL and Rpa Coumaroyl-HSL.
  • 2) Our fluorescence measurement is real-time process rather than a time point.

We not only found the activation range of LasR when induced with3OC12-HSL, but also tested the other 4 kinds of AHLs. We placed the coding sequence downstream from the pLas promoter, and recorded the fluorescence for different concentrations of AHLs. We found that there was no significant activation of LasR by AHLs of Lux、Rhl, however, Tra has a remarkable crosstalk.

I. Characterisation of LasR by Imperial College London iGEM 2016

Group: Imperial College London 2016

We improved this part by characterising the crosstalk between LasR and non-cognate AHLs. We found the activation range of LasR when induced with C12-AHL. For the crosstalk experiments, we tested C4-AHL, C14-AHL, and C6-AHL. We placed the coding sequence downstream from the pLas promoter, and recorded the fluorescence for different concentrations of AHLs.

We found that there was no significant activation of LasR by the C4-AHL.

(B) Heat map of normalised fluorescence of RhlR-GFP system over a range of AHL concentrations: (i) Binding of RhlR-GFP to its cognate AHL (C4 AHL). (ii) Binding of RhlR-GFP to 3 non-cognate AHLs (3O-C6 AHL, 3O-C12 AHL, 3OH-C14 AHL). (C) Transfer function curves of normalised fluorescence against non-cognate inducer AHL (3O-C12 AHL) concentrations to investigate inducer AHL crosstalk: (i) C4-AHL of the Rhl system (ii) C6-AHL (3O-C6 AHL) of the Lux system (iii) C14-AHL (3O-C14 AHL) of the Cin system. Experiments were performed in E. coli Top10 cell strain cultured at 37°C. Normalised fluorescence was calculated by dividing fluorescent signal by cell density (OD600). Fluorescence measurements were recorded at 180 minutes. Reported values represent the mean normalised fluorescence value from 3 technical repeats and error bars represent standard deviation of these.
