This part is a fusion promoter of PL and tetO, regulated by tetR and anhydrotetracycline
As a well-characterized promoter, PtetR has been studied thoroughly with its expression level and leakage.To better optimize the antimicrobial peptide expressing system, here we take a unique idea to created a new promoter fusion to create a new promoter that are regulated by tetracycline while with a desired expression intensity.
This part is a fusion of tetO operon and the -35 upstream, -35--10 parts，-10 downstream of the stronger PL promoters in lambda phages, to create a improved promoter with proper expression level while regulated by tetracycline.
Usage and Biology:
This part functions to lower the leakage and adjust the level of expression of the downstream gene. We fuse the -35 upstream, -35--10 parts，-10 downstream of the stronger PL promoters in lambda phages with the tetO operon regulated by tetracycline. As a promoter fusion of PL and tetO, not only is it regulated by tetR and anhydrotetracycline, but it also inherited the expression level of PL.

We have measured the expression level of PtetO2(BBa_K3606007), PtetO3 along with the original PtetR(BBa_R0040) via plate reader by combining them with GFP, when they were induced by different concentration of hydrotetracycline or not induced. We have measured the expression level of PtetO2, PtetO3(BBa_K3606006) along with the original PtetR(BBa_R0040) via plate reader by combining them with GFP, when they were induced by different concentration of hydrotetracycline or not induced.
Under the induction of aTc, the expression level of ptetO3 is moderate.
The results show that among the three promoters, ptetO3 has the highest fold of increase. This means that it is the most sensitive to the induction of aTc.

This part will act as a tighter tetracycline-regulated promoter with moderate expression and high sensitivity to inducers. The method that applied here can also change the future train of thoughts to create new fusion promoter with different characteristic.
