To create a system which responds to ligand binding with a detectable voltage caused by a K+ flux.





Mutant Strains

Flame Photometer Calibration

K+ Concentrations

BioBrick Manipulation

OD600 Calibration

Next Steps

Characterise promoters

1. Simulate and design ‘reporter plasmids’ with correct biobricks restriction enzyme sites

2. For each strain: 2 plasmid backbones

  • PSC101 (A) with OsmY (promoter) + RFP + Stop
  • Another (B), not yet defined, with Bba_J23100 + YFP + Stop
Tests for each strain : plasmid A, plasmid B, plasmid A + plasmid B (so 15 tests)

3. Quantify transformation efficiency (colony counter)

4. Quantify promoter strength (light intensity, expression levels)
