Notes on using the NEB PURExpress system.

Contents

Worked example: inducible expression

To illustrate how the system works, I am going to try various combinations of three different constructs:

  • PLG1 (BBa_I2035) - GFP with a LacI-repressible promoter on a plasmid
  • LLG2 (T7-Plac:RBS:GFP) - linear DNA with GFP on a LacI-repressible promoter, PCR'd from BBa_I2035
  • LCL3 (T7:RBS:lacI) - linear lacI on a constitutive T7 promoter

In addition, I may build up an RFP-based construct, just in case I can't get access to BBa_I2035. This requires two additional constructs:

  • LLR4 (T7-Plac:RBS:RFP) - linear DNA with RFP on a LacI-repressible promoter, PCR'd from the purified RFP plasmid (based on plasmids provided by Karsten Temme at UCSF), created by extension PCR
  • PLR5 (T7-Plac:RBS:RFP) - plasmid DNA with RFP on a LacI-repressible promoter, PCR'd from the purified RFP plasmid (based on plasmids provided by Karsten Temme at UCSF) and inserted into Novagen pET vector. This can be used as a replacement for PLG1, if needed.

Naming scheme:

  • L/P - DNA type: linear DNA versus plasmid
  • C/L - promoter type: constitutive T7 promoter versus LacI-repressible
  • G/L/R - coding region: GFP, RFP or LacI

Using these components, I can try out the following "circuits":

  • GFP expression on a lacI-repressible T7 promoter (with no lacI => should flouresence): PLG1 or LLG2
This will allow a positive control to make sure that a T7 promoter with operator site still works
  • Repression of GFP by lacI: PLG1/LLG2 + LCL3
  • Induction of GFP using IPTG: PLG1/LLG2 + LCL3

DNA construction

Only the BBa_I2035 plasmid is in the form needed for use with the PURE system. The other sequences will be constructed using PCR-based editing.

PLG1 - plasmid LacI-repressible GFP

This construct is part of the biobricks library and will be obtained from freezer stocks at Stanford (e-mail to Drew on 12 Feb confirming existence).

LLG2 - linear LacI-repressible GFP

This is linear DNA containing a lacI-repressible T7 promoter in front of GFP, extracted from BBa_I2035 using a simple forward and reverse primer. Use of this piece of DNA allows testing of linear DNA versus plasmid DNA.

The sequence for the relevant section of BBa_I2035, starting from the beginning of the promoter and going through the end of the terminator

LCL3

This sequence consists of lacI on a constitutive T7-promoter. It is constructed by doing PCR amplification of lacI out of a BBa_K091121 plasmid and then attaching the T7 promoter and RBS using the PURExpress universal primer. Sequence for lacI (from BBa_K091121 - wild type lacI):
