|Or get some help on plasmid backbones.|
|In molecular biology, researchers are often interested in expressing proteins for purification or characterization. Hence, several groups and companies have designed expression plasmids to make it easy to express recombinant proteins. Expression plasmids generally include a promoter and ribosome binding site for ready protein expression.
To express a protein coding sequence that adheres to the BioBrick assembly standard, simply assemble one of the parts below with your coding region of interest into any BioBrick plasmid backbone. Each of the parts below includes a promoter and a ribosome binding site for expression of a downstream protein coding region.
There are many plasmid backbones from which to choose. You might consider one of the high copy plasmid backbones for a plasmid backbone similar to pUC19. Or alternatively, you might consider a low or medium copy plasmid backbone, since lower copy number plasmids can in some cases give better protein expression.
If you're interested in constitutively expressing your protein of interest, use one of these plasmids.

|Jeff Tabor constructed the composite expression part BBa_J13002 in Andy Ellington's lab. Note that if BBa_J13002 is combined with another part that expressed TetR repressor, then BBa_J13002 is inducible via anhydrous tetracycline or aTC.||Samantha Liang, as a member of the 2006 UC Berkeley iGEM team, constructed the composite expression part BBa_J23038.|
If you're interested in controlled or inducible expression of your protein, use one of these plasmids. Generally, inducible expression plasmids only express your protein of interest upon addition of an exogenous inducer, such as IPTG, AHL, or arabinose.
