Phytobrick version of TetRes in BBa_K2560002

This is the Phytobrick version of the resistance Tet Res in K2560002 and was build as a part of the Marburg Collection. This plasmid can be used to create resistance parts for the "Marburg Collection". Instructions of how to use the Marburg Collection are provided at the bottom of the page.

Overview

An antibiotic resistance is the ability of a microorganism to resist the effect of an antibiotic (WHO). Specially microorganisms can acquire this property when they are exposed to low, non-lethal antibiotic concentrations e.g. when stopping an antibiotic treatment too early. In molecular and synthetic biology resistances are used as markers to select transformed organisms. Fully functional cassettes are coded on commercial available plasmids setting a selection pressure on the transformants when platting them on agar plates containing the corresponding antibiotics in an appropriate concentration.

Marburg Toolbox

We proudly present the Marburg Collection, a novel golden-gate-based toolbox containing various parts that are compatible with the PhytoBrick system and MoClo. Compared to other bacterial toolboxes, the Marburg Collection shines with superior flexibility. We overcame the rigid paradigm of plasmid construction - thinking in fixed backbone and insert categories - by achieving complete de novo assembly of plasmids.

36 connectors facilitate flexible cloning of multigene constructs and even allow for the inversion of individual transcription units. Additionally, our connectors function as insulators to avoid undesired crosstalk.

The Marburg Collection contains 123 parts in total, including:
inducible promoters, reporters, fluorescence and epitope tags, oris, resistance cassettes and genome engineering tools. To increase the value of the Marburg Collection, we additionally provide detailed experimental characterization for V. natriegens and a supportive software. We aspire availability of our toolbox for future iGEM teams to empower accelerated progression in their ambitious projects.


Figure 3: Hierarchical cloning is facilitated by subsequent Golden Gate reactions.
Basic building blocks like promoters or terminators are stored in level 0 plasmids. Parts from each category of our collection can be chosen to built level 1 plasmids harboring a single transcription unit. Up to five transcription units can be assembled into a level 2 plasmid.
Figure 4: Additional bases and fusion sites ensure correct spacing and allow tags.
Between some parts, additional base pairs were integrated to ensure correct spacing and to maintain the triplet code. We expanded our toolbox by providing N- and C- terminal tags by creating novel fusions and splitting the CDS and terminator part, respectively.
