Restriction sites in switch - HindIII
HindIII was designed into the switch downstream of the promoter. This allowed for confirmation of the "flip" of the switch by restriction digest.
Using both HindIII and PstI produces different sized fragments dependent on the orientation of the switch promoter.
Transcriptional terminators were designed into the switch construct in order to prevent transcriptional leakage of GFP when the switch is in the "OFF" position; this also applies to prevent RFP transcription in the "ON" position.
A spacer was included in the switch design to ensure the att sites were a suitable distance apart for the recombinase enzyme to work without steric hindrance.
Switch synthesised by IDT from a given sequence, RFP and GFP are from the 2014 distribution.
