RNA thermometer (ROSE)
An RNA thermometer that can be used for temperature sensitive post-transcriptional regulation which is based on a RNA thermometer from Bradyrhizobium japonicum that initiates translation at 42°C.
The image shows the secondary structure of the part after ligation to a protein coding part, as predicted by RNAfold. Notice that the 3' end, including the scar and the start codon, does not belong to the part. The blue region is the Shine Dalgarno sequence which is the ribosome binding site. The blue nucleotides are the ones that had to be changed in order to get the desired secondary structure after introduction of the scar.

To characterize this RNA thermometer in vivo, we made an RNA thermometer testing circuit, transformed it into E. coli, and tested the fluorescent output at different temperatures. These graphs show the relative fluorescent intensity of each thermometer between either 25 °C and 30 °C or 25 °C and 37 °C

Functional Parameters: Austin_UTexas
Burden Imposed by this Part:
Burden is the percent reduction in the growth rate of E. coli cells transformed with a plasmid containing this BioBrick (± values are 95% confidence limits). This BioBrick did not exhibit a burden that was significantly greater than zero (i.e., it appears to have little to no impact on growth). Therefore, users can depend on this part to remain stable for many bacterial cell divisions and in large culture volumes. Refer to any one of the BBa_K3174002 - BBa_K3174007 pages for more information on the methods, an explanation of the sources of burden, and other conclusions from a large-scale measurement project conducted by the 2019 Austin_UTexas team.
This functional parameter was added by the 2020 Austin_UTexas team.
