British Columbia - 2012.igem.org Our System

We have designed a tunable microbial consortium to distribute the 4S biodesulfurization pathway, responsible for the bio-desulfurization of DBT, as a metabolic network.

There are two major genetic circuits contained within our system:


The first is responsible for tuning the relative populations of the bacteria within the consortium. It is composed of different fluorescence markers under constitutive promoters, used to differentiate member of the population. As well as an amino acid biosynthesis genes under a inducible promoter, used to regulate the bacterial populations within the consortium.

The second codes for the distributed 4S pathway, and was created by splitting the dsz operon into each member species of our tunable consortium.

Data for our Favourite New Parts

Main Page - Strong Constitutive Promoter-ECFP generator, BBa_K804000: This is an Enhanced Cyan Fluorescence Protein under a strong constitutive Ptet promoter (BBa_J23118). It constitutively expresses ECFP (BBa_E0420). The CFP output device does not have a LVA tag and has a strong RBS. Under a plate scanner, ECFP excites at 439nm and emits at 476nm. The fluorescence output from this construct can be used to monitor growth and population dynamics(only at exponential phase) in a microbial consortium.

Main Page - Strong constitutive promoter-EYFP generator, BBa_K804001: This is an Enhanced Yellow Fluorescence Protein under a strong constitutive Ptet promoter (BBa_J23118). It constitutively expresses EYFP (BBa_E0430). The CFP output device does not have a LVA tag and has a strong RBS. Under a plate scanner, EYFP excites at 514nm and emits at 527nm. The fluorescence output from this construct can be used to monitor growth and population dynamics(only at exponential phase) in a microbial consortium.

Main Page - Rhamnose Inducible TrpA coding gene, BBa_K804012: This part contains a rhamnose inducible (pRha) TrpA coding gene. Upon induction with rhamnose, TrpA is expressed for indole-3-glycerol-phosphate(InGP)binding and catalysis/cleavage of InGP to indole and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate during an α reaction. This construct can be used to induce growth in Trp- auxotrophs.

In the respective auxotrophs, induction by arabinose resulted in growth compared to a negative control as measured by a plate reader.
