Phytobrick version of Terminator Dummy
This is the Phytobrick version of the terminator Terminator Dummy and was build as a part of the Marburg Collection. Instructions of how to use the Marburg Collection are provided at the bottom of the page.
Terminators are sequences downstream CDSs promoting dissociation of the transcriptional complex. In prokaryotes two kind of transcription terminators are reported. The first ones are Rho-independent terminators. This sequences build up hairpin structures during transcription disrupting the transcriptional complex. The mechanism of disruption is hypothesized to occur through allosteric effects of the hairpin binding and competitive kinetics ( Farnham PJ and Platt T.,1981) The other group are Rho-dependent terminators which require Rho and ATP. This terminators are found in bacteria and phages. The Rho factor binds to a cytosine-rich sequence on the mRNA where it hydrolyzes ATP, translocates down the mRNA and stimulates the dissociation of the transcription complex when contact is established ( Banerjee et al.2006).

We proudly present the Marburg Collection, a novel golden-gate-based toolbox containing various parts that are compatible with the PhytoBrick system and MoClo. Compared to other bacterial toolboxes, the Marburg Collection shines with superior flexibility. We overcame the rigid paradigm of plasmid construction - thinking in fixed backbone and insert categories - by achieving complete de novo assembly of plasmids.
36 connectors facilitate flexible cloning of multigene constructs and even allow for the inversion of individual transcription units. Additionally, our connectors function as insulators to avoid undesired crosstalk.
The Marburg Collection contains 123 parts in total, including:
inducible promoters, reporters, fluorescence and epitope tags, oris, resistance cassettes and genome engineering tools. To increase the value of the Marburg Collection, we additionally provide detailed experimental characterization for V. natriegens and a supportive software. We aspire availability of our toolbox for future iGEM teams to empower accelerated progression in their ambitious projects.
