FliC with RBS and J23116 promoter
As shown in Figure 1E and 1F, this construct was able to restore swimming in a fliC knockout strain to ~75% of wild-type levels. These results are also shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2 - FliC Motility Histogram The promoters indicated in the histogram were used to drive the fliC biobrick K1463600 with the RBS B0034. Plasmids containing these constructs were used to complement a chromosomal fliC mutation. The diameter of swimming in a 16 hour swarm assay at 37 degrees is shown. The error bars indicate the range or results obtained in two repeats of the experiment. The strong J23100 promoter in this result contained a mutation rendering it inactive see K1463604.
