Utah State 2015 iGEM Team Use

The Utah State 2015 iGEM Team used this, along with two other related promoters (CP8, CP11, CP44) in a Lactococcus lactis project. Due to time constraints and difficulties working with non-model organisms, the constructs were not inserted into L. lactis but were cloned into Escherichia coli and compared in strengths using the sfGFP(Bs) and mCherry(Lr) fluorescent proteins (see Figures 1 and 2, respectively). The findings were not consistent across different fluorescent proteins, which may be due to secondary structure differences in mRNA or in the protein sequences themselves. These data were very consistent for each of the six constructs over several biological and technical replicates.

This part was used in the composite part BBa_K1365555 for characterization by the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen.


The graph shown above helps us to know distribution of the fluorescence in the cells of E.coli with different CP promotor fused to superfoldedGFP-terminator-RBS collection (CP1, CP11, CP29, CP30, CP41, CP44) and J23101 as reference. We used this method to characterize the CP promoter collection that was BioBricked by the Uppsala 2013 team.
