FimH+sfGFP at residue 1
The literature has shown that the terminal pili protein FimH (Le Trong et al 2010) can be modified by inserting heterologous sequences at position 225 and 258 (Pallesen et al 1995, Shembri et al 1999). However these two amino acids are in the pilin binding domain which may present difficulties when attempting to introduce large modifications. Harvard iGEM 2015 also introduced modifications at position 1 of the mature FimH protein.
CDS which codes for a FimH protein fused with a sfGFP (Pedelacq et al 2005) at the N-terminal after cleavage of the signal peptide. This part tests expression and folding of FimH when modified by a large protein at the N-terminal. This part is included in the composite part http://parts.igem.org/Part:BBa_K2324007 under the pRha promoter.
