Design Notes

Note that this sequence includes the arsR gene encoding the ArsR repressor protein, which is thus negatively autoregulated. No additional parts are required for arsenate-induced expression from this part. In principle, this part should also function in hosts other than E. coli.


Source

The DNA was derived by PCR using genomic DNA from E. coli JM109. Primers were designed based on the sequence reported by Diorio et al (1995), J. Bacteriol 177 (8), 2050-2056, Genbank accession X80057, GI:510824. The sequence given here is derived by sequencing the biobrick construct.
