[…] 26 rbs-6 variants were transformed and relative rbs activity was determined as a steady-state measurement with cell-free, in vivo, and through in silico prediction, using the rbs calculator () and utr designer () models. interestingly, two variants (psjm1211 - 5′-gaggaggtattat-3′ and psjm1223 - 5′-aagggggtattat-3′) identified from the cell-free screen displayed a twofold enhanced activity […]

[…] interactions which would explain the functional divergence. in addition, estimation of the translation efficiencies based on the 13 rbs sequences using the salis calculator (fig. b) and utr designer (additional file ) resulted in similar outputs that differed significantly from the measured expression profiles, supporting the view that that the reverse engineering approach […]

[…] of the nucleotides located up- and downstream from the sd domain can clearly strongly affect translation efficiency.table 1figure 1table 2figure 2, there are two widely used online programs (utr designer (https://omictools.com/utr-designer-tool) and rbs calculator (https://www.denovodna.com/software/reverse)) that allow the translation initiation rate from a certain rbs to be predicted,.

[…] one of the lycopene synthesis rate-limiting enzymes, in an e. coli strain expressing the λ-red system on the plasmid psim5. a strong 5′-utr (ctagttggtaaggagtctatagttg) was predicted using the utr designer program []. the same cassette was then replaced with an oligo (i.e., utr-dxs) containing a strong 5′-utr flanked by the respective homologous sequences of dxs. short ssdna (oligos) […]

[…] our findings based on ribo-seq data. we predicted tirs using three experimentally-conditioned tir calculators, of which two are based on detailed thermodynamic models (the rbs calculator [,] and the utr designer []), and a third is based on a log-linear regression of e. coli gene expression (barrick calculator []). the results from the tir calculators vary greatly due to the inherent differences […]
