This part was created using Gibson Assembly to clone the gene coding for the DNA2.0 chromoprotein into pSB1C3. We also added a FLAG, lumino and 6x histidine tag in order be able to extract the expressed protein using nickel column purification. The lumino tag is a specific six amino acid sequence that binds to the LumioTM Green  which allows the fusion of the lumino tag and the chromoprotein to be detected on an SDS-Page Gel without having to run a staining protocol. The FLAG tag allows for anything after its sequence to be cleaved off of the protein when the extracted protein is incubated with enterokinase .This was done in case the lumino or histidine tag interfered with the chromoprotein structure. Additionally, a cellulose binding domain was added to each of the chromoproteins. This cellulose binding domain was from the BioBrick BBa_K1321366 which also has a GFP fused to it. For the purposes of our experiments, we isolated the cellulose binding domain from this part using PCR. The cellulose binding domain sequence was isolated from Cellulomonas fimi and has been shown to bind irreversibly to cellulose . Below is our sequencing verification for this part.
