Because we wish to start with elements that are reversed (upside down pancakes), we need to think about how to get backwards parts. That is, parts that have the Prefix, then reversed element (promoter, term, CDS, RBS), then Suffix.
A good way to make a backwards part is to PCR amplify the part from a plasmid with primers that include a XbaI site on the 3' end of the part and a SpeI on the 5' end (and four extra bases). Then the PCR product can be digested with XbaI and SpeI and directionally cloned into a vector.
For the reverse orientation of the Ara-BAD promoter (BBa_I13453), we designed these primers:
5’ GCAT ACTAGT ACATTGATTATTTGCACGGC 3’
5’ GCAT TCTAGA GCTAGCCCAAAAAAACGGTA 3’
Alternative plan for making pARA reverse uses these oligos:
5’ GCAT ACTAGT ACATTGATTATTTGCACGGCGTCACACTTTGCTATGCCATAGCATTTTTATCCATAAGATTAGCGGATCC 3’
5’ GCAT TCTAGA GCTAGCCCAAAAAAACGGTATGGAGAAACAGTAGAGAGTTGCGATAAAAAGCGTCAGGTAGGATCCGCTA 3’
For the reverse orientation of the RBS - BBa_B0030 Plate DNA-1, Spot 3G, pSB1A2, we designed these primers:
5’ GCAT ACTAGT ATTAAAGAGGAGAAA 3’
5’ GCAT TCTAGA TTTCTCCTCTTTAAT 3’
For the reverse orientation of the double forward terminator, BBa_B0015 Plate DNA-1, Spot 1I, pSB1AK3, we designed these primers:
5’ GCAT ACTAGT CCAGGCATCAAATAAAACGA
5’ GCAT TCTAGA TATAAACGCAGAAAGGCCCA
Several other possible ways:
- Some parts are backwards in the registry - terminators, for eg.
- Parts that are not long could be synthesized backwards.
- If one pancake can be flipped, reversed parts can be made. This may actually be a good contribution, since it could be applied to reverse any part between two hix sites.
- Can cut out a part with NotI, then religate in both orientations.
BBa_B0022 Terminator (Reverse B0012) Length: 84 Base Pairs Including BioBrick Ends
BBa_P1004 is ampR resistance cassette in reverse orientation Length: 984 Base Pairs Including BioBrick Ends (In planning stages only)
Bba_B0034 is a RBS with the sequence:
gaattcgcggccgcttctagag attaaagaggagaaa tactagtagcggccgctgcag
It could be redesigned with the RBS reversed:
gaattcgcggccgcttctagag tttctcctctttaat tactagtagcggccgctgcag
Oligos for reverse RBS that produce EcoRI and SpeI sticky ends:
5’ AATTC GCGGCCGC T TCTAGA G TTTCTCCTCTTTAAT T A 3’
5’ CTAGT A ATTAAAGAGGAGAAA C TCTAGA A GCGGCCGC G 3’
Oligos for reverse pBAD promoter that produce XbaI and SpeI sites with 4 extra bp on ends and 10 bp overlap in middle:
5' - GCAT ACTAGTA CATTGATTATTTGCACGGCGTCACACTTTGCTATGCCATAGCATTTTTATCCATAAGAT TAGCGGATCC - 3'
5' - GCAT TCTAGA GCTAGCCCAAAAAAACGGTATGGAGAAACAGTAGAGAGTTGCGATAAAAAGCGTCAGGTA GGATCCGCTA - 3'
Here is a proposed strategy for making backwards parts flanked by hix sites:
E - N - X - hix - S - N - P
Does there have to be a T between NotI and XbaI and an A between SpeI and NotI? All the parts we have looked at so far have this.

Oligos to order
Biobricking in one hix site:
Example of a construct for one flip (terminator, although CDS would be better):
Biobricking hix sites onto parts:
Assembly of One Pancake Test Construct:
Assembly of Two Pancake Test Construct would be next. Probably want two genes.
Assembly of Multiple Pancake Test Constructs:
>1. Terminator T1 Bba_B0010 DNA-2 3P<
2. Promoter Pbad BBa_I13453
>3. Promoter w/RBS (TetR Repressed) BBa_J13002 DNA-2 3F <
4. Reverse Amp^r BBa_P1004 (Oops, planning)
5. Reverse CmR BBa_P1009 789 bp (Oops, planning)
>6. Double Forward Terminator BBa_B0015 DNA-1 1I <
>7. Tet^r Bba_P1001 DNA-2 23F <
Will the TetR repressed promoter in BBa_J13002 be always on in JM109 cells?
Do we want to be able to turn on a Start Promoter(i.e. LacP using IPTG) on/off so recombination occurs 1st; and then use a different inducible promoter to turn on transcription?
