Testing B.subtilis promoters and RBSs

We are seeking to test the expression strength and response to inducers in several promoters in B.subtilis, in combination with different Bacillus-specific ribosome binding sites.

B. subtilis Promoter Testing with Beta-galactosidase Assay

We are aiming to characterize four different Bacillus subtilis promoters using the beta-galactosidase assay. (Protocol for beta-galactosidase assay as described here

B. subtilis Promoters to be Tested:

  • Pupp
  • Ppac
  • Pspac
  • Pxyl
