Advantages of these so-called aptazymes are their modular architecture and the comparably little coding space they require. A variety of aptamer-ribozyme combinations were constructed in the past 20 years and the resulting aptazymes were applied in diverse contexts in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems. Most in vivo functional aptazymes are OFF-switches, while ON-switches are more advantageous regarding potential applications in e.g. gene therapy vectors. We developed new ON-switching aptazymes in the model organism Escherichia coli and in mammalian cell culture using the intensely studied guanine-sensing xpt aptamer. Utilizing a high-throughput screening based on fluorescence-activated cell sorting in bacteria we identified up to 9.2-fold ON-switches and OFF-switches with a dynamic range up to 32.7-fold. For constructing ON-switches in HeLa cells, we used a rational design approach based on existing tetracycline-sensitive ON-switches. We discovered that communication modules responding to tetracycline are also functional in the context of guanine aptazymes, demonstrating a high degree of modularity. Here, guanine-responsive ON-switches with a four-fold dynamic range were designed. Summarizing, we introduce a series of novel guanine-dependent ribozyme switches operative in bacteria and human cell culture that significantly broaden the existing toolbox.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Hartig, Jörg Steffen</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/44867"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Hartig, Jörg Steffen</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/44867/1/Stifel_2-148v2dskly2771.pdf"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>Expanding the toolbox of synthetic riboswitches with guanine-dependent aptazymes</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-02-06T08:29:43Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Spöring, Maike</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Spöring, Maike</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Stifel, Julia</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
