pORE Expression Series Vector with BioBrick MCS, Basta resistance

Vector for transformation of plants. Cloning in E. Coli, transfer to agrobacteria, integrates in the plant genome. Kanamycin resistance in bacteria, confers Basta resistance in plants. Contains the pENTCUP2 promoter upstream of MCS for constitutive expression of gene of interest.


Confirmed functions:

  • Kan resistance in bacteria: confirmed by transformation and colony growth of E. coli (DH5alpha) and Agrobacterium tumefaciens
  • Basta resistance in plants: confirmed by selective germination of transformed Arabidopsis seeds on basta agar plates (See photos [1]).

Confirmation pending: Function of the ENTCUP2 promoter will be tested by checking for expression for several BioBrick parts in adult Arabidopsis plants. These parts include...


Transformed seeds were plated on 5 micrograms/ml basta in Murashige and Skoog agar and we observed approximately 0.1% transgene expression and sprout survival.

Successfully transfected basta resistant Arabidopsis plants, such as the one shown below (brazzein BBa_K382052), will be tested for BioBrick expression once they have grown large enough for tissue sampling:
