B. subtilis transformation vector with LacI, targets amyE locus.
This vector has been designed using the amyE 5' and 3' integration sequences for integration into B.subtilis genome
AmyE locus This vector has been designed using the amyE 5' BBa_K143008 and 3' BBa_K143009 integration sequences for integration into B. subtilis genome. Insertion into the amyE locus provides a selection marker as the bacterium will no longer be able to breakdown starch. An iodine assay can be used to confirm integration. This phenotype makes the transformed bacterium considerably less likely to survive in natural environments.
Chloramphenicol Resistance This vector also contains a positive selection marker. Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase BBa_J31005 provides resistance to chloramphenicol antibiotic.
Blunt end cloning site PmeI restriction site BBa_K316013 is designed as a blunt ended DNA (eg. PCR product) insertion site. Due to the 8bp recognition sequence it is a rare site that can be used to cut the vector only once. To add any BioBrick construct to the vector for integration, it may be linearised by PCR (or by cutting with NotI if further cloning steps are not required) and ligated into the vector after it is cut with PmeI.
