Standard 25-Ready Xyle Reporter
This is a mutated version of the Xyle reporter gene which encodes for the enzyme catechol-2,3-dioxygenase (metapyrocatechase), which converts catechol to the bright yellow product 2-hydroxy-cis,cis-muconic semialdehyde. This version of Xyle has been made compatible with standard 25 assembly methods by removing three restriction sites (two NgoMIV sites: at bp 315 and 486, as well as one AgeI site: at bp 837). These mutations were made synonymous with the original sequence and codon optimized for E. Coli.
Because of the synonymous mutations, this gene can be easily used to create fusion protein parts. For more information on the Xyle gene and its uses as a reporter see part BBa_J33204.

This part was used by the Penn State team to construct variations of their improved fast-acting reporters. Proof of its compatibility with assembly 25 methods is shown below by its sequence show here attached to a small fusion linker peptide (BBa_K648007).

The sequence here shows the Xyle gene in green, followed by the assembly 25 scar (ACCGGC) shown highlighted in yellow. The short sequence highlighted in blue is the small linker.
