pORE Expression Series Vector with BioBrick MCS (Kan reistance)

Vector for transformation of plants. Cloning in E. coli, transfer to Agrobacterium, integrates into plant genome. Kan resistance marker in bacteria, confers Kan resistance in plants. Has the constitutive promoter pENTCUP2 upstream of multiple cloning site for easy expression of genes in plants. Conforms to Silver BioBrick Assembly Standard 21.


Confirmed functions:

  • Kan resistance in bacteria: confirmed by transformation and colony growth of E. coli (DH5alpha) and Agrobacterium tumefaciens
  • Kan resistance in plants: confirmed by selective germination of transformed Arabidopsis seeds on kanamycin 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 50 micrograms/ml kanamycin in Murashige and Skoog agar and we observed approximately 0.1% transgene expression and sprout survival.

Successfully transfected kanamycin resistant Arabidopsis plants, such as the ones shown below, will be tested for BioBrick expression once they have grown large enough for tissue sampling. Shown below are plants transformed with LUT2 BBa_K382061 ("C1") and Beta Ohase I knock-down amiRNA BBa_K382062 ("C2"):
