Shipped Parts

We are happy to announce that we have successfully created several parts for Saccharomyces cerevisiae over the course of this summer!

This year we have continued last year's project and created parts that last year's team was not able to construct in time. However, last year's team had already created registry entries for their planned parts long before they had to realize that they had aimed way too high with their planning.

This year we decided to send in all our parts (which were designed mainly last year) under last year's registry numbers in order to actually stock these entries with DNA-parts. We did not want to create new parts since we did not want to clutter the registry with duplicates and redundancy.

In the end we have shipped 7 unique parts to the registry - since yeast specific parts are rather rare until now our parts will surely come in handy for any future projects that use S. cerevisiae as chassis organism.


See here a list of our shipped parts:

  • BBa_K950000: Promoter of FET3 (Pfet3)

    Pfet3 is a metalloregulated promoter of S. cerevisiae that is repressed by vertebrate progesterone receptors like mPR Dr or mPR Xl.

  • BBa_K950001: ROX1

    ROX1 is a regulator protein (thus rox1 is a regulator gene) in yeast's oxygen dependend metabolic reactions. ROX1 represses the upstream region / promoter of the ANB1 gene. In nature, heme is a cofactor for this repression under aerobic conditions.

  • BBa_K950002: Promoter of ANB1 (Panb1)

    Panb1 is the promoter of the ANB1 gene. ROX1 represses ANB1 via Panb1 due to repeated operator sequences in the promoter.

  • BBa_K950003: Promoter of SUC2 (Psuc2)

    The SUC2 gene encodes invertase which is an important element of yeast's sucrose metabolism. SUC2's promoter

  • BBa_K950006: Progesterone membrane receptor of Danio rerio (mPR Dr)

  • BBa_K950007: Progesterone membrane receptor of Xenopus laevis (mPR Xl)

  • BBa_K950007: MIG1
