Introduction

pT7-CBDcipA-sfGFP
Figure Y. Mechanism of action

This part consists of a cellulose binding domain (CBD) from Clostridium thermocellum cellulose scaffolding protein (CipA) with an sfGFP fused, using a flexible GS-linker (-GGGGSGGGGS-), to the CBDCipA. A thrombin cleavage site (-LVPRGS-) is added to the end of the linker and its breakage will leave a glycine and serine amino acid attached to the N-terminal of the AsPink fusion protein.

An internal BamHI recognition sequence (RS) has been added to enable changeable fusion proteins. BamHI was chosen because its RS codes for glycine and serine, fitting it to the end of the thrombin site. It is also cost-effective enzyme and is unaffected by methylated DNA.

This part can be used to track purification, measure CBD binding ability and report breakage of the thrombinsite.

This part uses an expression system with a T7 promotor (BBa_I719005) as well as a 5'-UTR (BBa_K1758100) region which has been shown to further increase expression in E. coli (BBa_K1758106), (Olins et al. 1989), (Takahashi et al. 2013).

Expression system

The part has a very strong expression with a T7 promotor (BBa_I719005) as well as a 5'-UTR (BBa_K1758100) region which has been shown to further increase expression in E. coli (BBa_K1758106), (Olins et al. 1989), (Takahashi et al. 2013). Both this part and the part were sfGFP was changed for AsPink (BBa_K3182000) showed great expression.

Figure B. Benchling screenshot of the expression system. This expression system leads to a high expression and therefore protein yield.

Usage and Biology

The potential usage of this part can be divided in three part. Measurement of CBD binding ability, tracking of purification and reporter of linker breakage.

Measurement of CBD binding ability

Tracking of purification

Reporter of release from the CBD with thrombin

Figure X. Basic overlook of cellulose purification.
Figure X. The cellulose bandage (Epiprotect) has been washed in bacterial lysate of the biobrick according to the illustration on the left. This was performed in an Eppendorf tube for 15 min on an end-to-end rotator. After binding the CBD-sfGFP, the bandage was washed three time with 70 % ethanol. The bandage was afterwards incubated over night in thrombin cleavage buffer (left) and in thrombin cleavage buffer+thrombin (right).

Washed three times with either 70 % ethanol, PBS or deionized water. Picture 2: Induced culture after 16 hours. E. coli BL21 (DE3) cells were grown in prescence of 25 ug/mL chlorampenicol until an OD600 of 0.8 at 37 degrees Celsius, and later induced with 0.5 mM IPTG. The induced culture were then incubated in 16 degrees Celsius for 16 hours. Picture 3: Left: CBDcipA-sfGFP bound to bacterial cellulose in form of a thin film, right: bacterial cellulose reference. Binding of CBDcipA-sfGFP was done the same way as the pictures below.
