The input-output function of these two units could be linearized by adjusting the strength of the different regulatory parts (promoters and untranslated regions) and/or by using degradable sigma factors, as shown in Figure 1b and Supplementary Figure S1d. A net decrease of the output signal is observed for the σ38 and T7 units at high plasmid concentration (Supplementary Figure S1e and S1g), for which no explanation can be provided. The sharp response of the T7 and the T3 units to the change of concentration of the plasmid encoding the RNA polymerase is attributed to the high efficiency and specificity of bacteriophage transcriptions (Supplementary Figure S1f and S1g).
We show that the competition of different sigma factors for the core RNA polymerase can lead to a strong passive transcriptional repression, which can be used in circuits as an autoregulation of gene expression. The construction of a five-stage transcriptional activation cascade highlights the importance of the global mRNA inactivation rate, which turns out to be critical for the circuit output signal’s specificity by decreasing the amplification of crosstalks between activation units. Negative feedback loops are constructed from a set of σ70 transcriptional repression units.
