pClone Blue - Device for Testing New Promoters via Golden Gate Assembly

pClone Blue will allow users to clone and test new promoters without gel purification or other preparation of DNA - it is ideal for teaching labs. It is a destination vector for Golden Gate Assembly (GGA) using BsaI and ligase. A new promoter can be derived from synthetic oligos, PCR, or a plasmid clone. For proper assembly, the new promoter must have the appropriate 4 nt sticky ends or be flanked by BsaI sites that produce the sticky ends. With reference to the top strand, the left site must be 5' CGAC 3' and the right site must be 5' GCGG 3'. BsaI always produces a 5' overhang sticky end. Successful GGA assembly replaces the reverse promoter driving GFP expression with the new promoter. The new promoter will drive expression of AmilCP Blue (see Part BBa_K592009 in the forward direction or GFP expression if it has reverse promoter function. The part incorporate the BD18 bicistronic translational junction (see Part BBa_J119024) engineered by Vivek Mutalik and The BIOFAB Team at biofab.org. Related parts are pClone Red and pClone Basic. Development of the pClone plasmids and their use in courses are described in Campbell et al. 2014.
