    Model plasmids used in this study. The lacI-Ptac-lacO insert (A) includes a promoter that is somewhat leaky at high copy number. The IMBB2.4-pUC57-mini backbone (A–B), hereafter abbreviated pUC, is BioBrick-compatible and also includes an NsiI site downstream of PstI ( Matsumura, 2017 ). The tagRFP reporter (B) protein can cause colonies to turn visibly pink, but only when the gene encoding it is subcloned downstream of a leaky or constitutive promoter. RP4 oriT-pUC-cat (C) is a BioBrick compatible plasmid that confers resistance to chloramphenicol instead of ampicillin. RP4 oriT serves as a small stuffer in these experiments. In this study this latter plasmid is used only as a recipient plasmid (destination vector) for 3A assembly. Five expression vectors for production of recombinant DNA methyltransferases were constructed for this study. The version that expresses M.Ocy1ORF8430P, a putative ortholog of M.SpeI, is shown (D). The others are similar in design but express M.XbaI, M.EcoRI, M.PstI or M.AvaIII instead. Each plasmid utilizes the low copy number p15A origin (pACYC) and confers resistance to spectinomycin and is thus compatible with pUC plasmids that impart resistance to ampicillin, chloramphenicol or kanamycin. The DNA methyltransferase expression vectors do not contain any of the restriction sites employed in BioBrick assembly protocols (EcoRI, XbaI, SpeI or PstI), so they will not produce restriction fragments that ligate to those that are desired.

    Conventional subcloning of BioBrick-compatible parts. Recipient (1) and donor (2) plasmids both contain inserts bound by the same restriction sites (E = EcoRI, X = XbaI, S = SpeI, P = PstI). The recipient plasmid (1) is cut with SpeI and PstI, releasing a short stuffer fragment (or “snippet,” 3); the donor (2) is separately cut with XbaI and PstI, so that insert (5) is released from plasmid fragment (6). The fragments from both digests (3-6) are separated by agarose gel electrophoresis. The desired recipient fragment (4) and insert (5) are excised from the gel and subsequently purified; the unwanted stuffer (3) and donor plasmid fragment (6) are left in the gels, which are thrown away. The recipient fragment (4) and insert (5) are ligated together forming three products: the recipient plasmid homodimer (7), the insert homodimer (8) and desired insert-recipient plasmid heterodimer (9). Large inverted repeats (7-8) cannot replicate stably in vivo so the desired construct (9) is the only product capable of conferring antibiotic selection if the digests and ligations were efficient.

    4R/2M (PstI) BioBrick assembly. The EcoRI site of the recipient plasmid (1) and SpeI site of the insert (2) are methylated in vivo. The recipient plasmid (1) is digested with SpeI and PstI, so that it releases a short 18 bp stuffer (or “snippet”, 4). The donor plasmid (2) is separately digested with XbaI and PstI, producing the desired insert (5) and the undesired donor plasmid fragment (6). The restriction enzymes are heat-killed, the digestion products are mixed and reacted with T4 DNA ligase, forming three sets of ligation products: parental-plasmids (1-2), homodimers (7-9) and heterodimers (10-13). The 36 bp snippet homodimer is not shown, nor are trimer, tetramer and other higher order products. The homodimer products (7-9) are large perfect inverted repeats, which are not expected to replicate efficiently in vivo. Moreover, none of the undesired parental (1-2), homodimer (7-9) or heterodimers (10-11) are resistant to subsequent digestion with EcoRI and SpeI. Only the desired insert/recipient recombinant plasmid (13) retains its ability to transform E. coli .

    Figure Lengend Snippet: 4R/2M (PstI) BioBrick assembly. The EcoRI site of the recipient plasmid (1) and SpeI site of the insert (2) are methylated in vivo. The recipient plasmid (1) is digested with SpeI and PstI, so that it releases a short 18 bp stuffer (or “snippet”, 4). The donor plasmid (2) is separately digested with XbaI and PstI, producing the desired insert (5) and the undesired donor plasmid fragment (6). The restriction enzymes are heat-killed, the digestion products are mixed and reacted with T4 DNA ligase, forming three sets of ligation products: parental-plasmids (1-2), homodimers (7-9) and heterodimers (10-13). The 36 bp snippet homodimer is not shown, nor are trimer, tetramer and other higher order products. The homodimer products (7-9) are large perfect inverted repeats, which are not expected to replicate efficiently in vivo. Moreover, none of the undesired parental (1-2), homodimer (7-9) or heterodimers (10-11) are resistant to subsequent digestion with EcoRI and SpeI. Only the desired insert/recipient recombinant plasmid (13) retains its ability to transform E. coli .

    Article Snippet: 3A assemblyA BioBrick-compatible plasmid that encodes chloramphenicol acetyltransferase, RP4 oriT-pUC57-mini-cat (2 µg) in 1× NEB CutSmart buffer (80 µL total reaction volume) by 20 units each of EcoRI-HF, PstI-HF and NotI-HF (so as to eliminate the sticky ends of its stuffer fragment), dephosphorylated in reactions with NEB Calf Intestinal Phosphatase.
