The kanamycin resistance worked as expected, in which successfully transformed colonies were able to grow on a kanamycin-containing agar plate. This antibiotic resistance marker was used in the plasmid BBa_K4047039. The insertion of the part both disrupted functional gene expression of our target gene and served as a selective marker for successful integration. This part was successfully used in the 2021 MiamiU_OH team project, with a picture shown below of the resulting growth.
Applications of BBa_K4047019
This part can be used in plasmids as a selective marker, indicating when colonies have been successfully transformed.
