Yeast exportable Trp-rich peptide w/enhanced import (1)
This composite device produces and exports a Tryptophan rich peptide, that is import enhanced (thanks to a trojan peptide). This device is intended to be used with Yeast chassis, so it is composed by subparts designed also to be use in yeast.
The high level structure of the device is:
- Kozak consensus sequence for initiation of translation (from yeast α-factor mating pheromone (MFα1))
- Signal peptide that targets the product of the gene for secretion (also from yeast α-factor mating pheromone (MFα1))
- Trojan peptide, to increase internalization in target cell (from HIV TAT penetratin)
- Payload: this is the exported Tryptophan rich domain of the protein (a TrpZipper)
The device's sequence has inherited some useful restriction sites (BamHI & HindIII) from the parts it's made of.
|Important note:||this part has been submitted to the registry using a direct synthesis DNA sample, so it does not contain scars from BB assembly standard.|

|This device contains BBa_K792003, a trojan peptide. Extreme your safety measures when dealing with strains containing this part: avoid direct contact with them or conditioned medium and discard them as pathogenic residues.|
|The device was originally designed and built to be used in iGEM BsAs 2012 project to implement a cross-feeding regulatory system between two different yeast strains with specific auxotrophy. Visit our wiki to read details about the designing process and implementation details. Also feel free to contact us for any question regarding this part.|
|To determined the devices Tryptophan's secretion rate we used a simple model that describes the behaviour of a strain transformed with the device that produces and secretes this amino acid and how it accumulates in the medium. The secretion rate is the ratio between the concentration of tryptophan at a given time and the time integral of the culture density.
