UAS is a DNA structure domain that combined with GAL4. Luciferin (LUC) is a protein that can activate fluorescein.We use it as reporter gene.
UAS (BBa_K758003)) is a piece of small DNA sequence that can be recognized and combined by GAL4 DBD. Team iGEM12_KIT-Kyoto repeated UAS 5 times when using it. In our design, considering of that the mutual effect of our blue light protein would reduce the efficiency and the whole pathway is relatively long, while the react time of our system should be as short as possible, we have made some alterations
Firstly, we have repeated the UAS before promoter for 9 times. The purpose of constructing 9XUAS-Ad-LUC (BBa_K3734032) and 9XUAS-Ad-insulin(BBa_K3734033) is to enhance the recognition and combination of GAL4 DBD, improve the efficiency of downstream target gene activation.Firstly, we have repeated the UAS before promoter for 9 times.

Secondly, we have used Ad promoter as promoter to make it able to function in eukaryotic cells and improve the expression efficiency after the activation of VP16
We used report gene LUC to represent the working status of 9XUAS-Ad
we used the reporting gene LUC as the downstream target gene, and set up a positive control group and a negative control group. The results prove that the efficiency of our improved 9XUAS has been greatly improved, which can meet the requirements of short loop response

Because we repeat UAS nine times, we should pay attention to avoiding duplicate fragments when designing primer. If you can't avoid duplicate clips, please note the times that UAS in PCR products has been repeated.
