How our system works:




Data For Our Favorite New Parts:

  • Mitochondrial leader sequence, BBa_K1119001: for directing proteins to the mitochondria. When the mitochondrial leader sequence is attached, glyoxylate enzymes AceA and AceB can be led into mitochondria to facilitate glyoxylate shunt.
  • Cytomegalovirus promoter (CMV Promoter), BBa_K1119006: constitutive mammalian promoter. With the CMV promoter, constitutive expression of the glyoxylate genes aceA and aceB can be realized.
  • Human Elongation Factor-1alpha promoter (EF-1alpha Promoter), BBa_K1119010: constitutive mammalian promoter. With the EF-1alpha promoter, constitutive expression of the glyoxylate genes aceA and aceB can be realized.


Data for Pre-existing Parts:

  • Kozak-XbaI-NLS-6His-Stop, BBa_J176171 (Haynes Lab, 2007):¬†used as a backbone for PfadBA and Pfabp1.
  • hGH-PolyA, BBa_K404108 (Freiburg Bioware iGEM, 2010): hGH PolyA tail was added after the GFP sequence in the construct of BBa_K1119008 and BBa_K1119009 for characterization of MLS, which gave us the expected results.
  • GFP BBa_K648013(Penn-State iGEM, 2011): green fluorescent protein reporter (BBa_E0040) with RFC 25 assembly standard prefix and suffix was used as a reporter for characterization of MLS and the CMV promoter.


We Also Characterized the Following Parts

  • CMV promoter-GFP, BBa_K1119008: CMV promoter was assembled with GFP-hGH PolyA. Following transfection of the construct into HEK293FT cells, GFP was successfully expressed.
  • CMV promoter-Mitochondrial Leader Sequence fused with GFP , BBa_K1119009: CMV promoter assembled with MLS and GFP-hGH PolyA. Following transfection of the construct into HEK293FT cells, GFP was successfully expressed and directed into mitochondria.
  • EF-1alpha promoter-GFP, BBa_K1119011: EF-1alpha promoter was assembled with GFP-hGH PolyA. Following transfection of the construct into HEK293FT cells, GFP was successfully expressed.
