Ribosome binding site* (RBS*)
Usage and Biology
The RBS is the location in which a ribosome binds to the mRNA and initiates the translation. The effectiveness of the translation depends amongst other things 1 on the base-pairing potential between the Shine-Dalgarno sequence and the anti-Shine-Dalgarno sequence at the 3’ end of the 16S rRNA sequence and it depends on the space between the A of the core Shine-Dalgarno sequence and the first base of the start codon of the gene of interest 1, 2.
RBS* was created by Heidorn (2011), is complementary to the anti-Shine-Dalgarno of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 and contains an optimal space of 9 base pairs 2. It has been shown that RBS* is specifically in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 very strong 2. This was tested with Escherichia coli and Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 each containing standard biological parts BBa_B0030, BBa_B0032, BBa_B0034 and RBS*. Due to fluorescence of GFPmut3B, the transitional effectiveness could be measured and compared 2.
The RBS* can therefore be used in Synechocystis for our approach to highly efficient translate target thioesterases from heterologous organism in the constructs BBa_K2924010, BBa_K2924011, BBa_K2924012, and BBa_K2924013.
