Safety Flag

The iGEM Safety Committee has placed a Red Flag on this part. This part presents safety risks beyond what is normal for the Registry. Researchers who plan to acquire and use this part should take special care to ensure they use it safely and responsibly. Contact safety (AT) igem (DOT) org with any questions.

Reason: outer membrane channel protein

If you are an iGEM team, you must submit a Check-In before acquiring and using this part! See the 2017 Safety Page for more information.


pBAD+Strong RBS+E. coli tolC signal sequence+Y. pestis tolC

Combination of part BBa_K1406000 (BBa_K206000 + BBa_B0034) the E. coli tolC signaling sequence and the Yersenia pestis Angola tolC gene. Transcription is controlled by the arabinose-induced pBAD promoter (BBa_K206000). A strong E. coli RBS (BBa_B0034) controls translation. The signaling sequence is a cleavable N-terminal signaling sequence from E. coli's tolC gene. This is required for trimerization of the TolC monomers as well as insertion into the outer membrane; it forms a chimeric polypeptide with the tolC gene from Yersenia pestis Angola. TolC trimers form a outer-membrane alpha/beta barrel pore can interface with a variety of molecule pumps to form a transperiplasmic pump.

The Yersenia pestis tolC restored the efflux function of the bacteria, reducing the zones of clearing to that of the WT E. coli.
