Customizable two-state genetic switches, where Red indicates the absence of a microRNA and Cyan indicates the presence of a microRNA. Haynes, K. A., Ceroni, F., Flicker, D., Younger, A., & Silver, P.

Synthetic Biology plasmids distributed through DNASU.
This unique class of transcription factors (gene activators) are fusion proteins that bind to histone marks (H3K27me3) instead of DNA sequences. The first generation of these actuators, called Pc-TFs, was published by Haynes and Silver in 2011. All proteins listed here are tagged with the mCherry red fluorescent protein for easy visualization, tagged with the myc epitope for biochemical analysis, and placed under control of a Tet repressible (dox-inducible) promoter.
