What is the Point of this Project?


The goal of this project is to characterize the inner workings of the phospholocator , designed and built by Samantha Sutton. Although we know how the phospholocator device works, we don't have a quantitative description of how the parts interact.

Since the effectiveness (gain) of the phospholocator (PPL) device depends on the kinase parts being active, or phosphorylated, I will spend this summer finding out:

  • how much phosphorylated kinase is present in a cell
  • the relationship between phosphorylated kinase and phosphorylated PPL
  • how changing the concentration of active kinase and PPL in the cell effects the gain of the system
  • how to use this knowledge (which will be collected and posted on the [Registry of Standard Biological Parts]) to increase the gain of the PPL
