395 essential genes from synthetic bacterium JCVI-Syn3A, codon optimized for Escherichia coli in MoClo-compatible high-copy ampicillin resistance backbones. Shipped in Escherichia coli Top10 in 6 96 well plates.

For nearly 20 years, the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) worked on creating a minimal synthetic bacterial genome, which they finally achieved in 2016. They named it JCVI-Syn3.0, though the organism JCVI-Syn3A, which is JCVI-Syn3.0 with 16 addition genes, is more commonly used because it has a more stable phenotype[1]. All 493 genes in JCVI-Syn3.0 are essential for growth and 149 of those gene's functions are unknown.  

All the essential genes have been recoded for expression in Escherichia coli and have been made MoClo compatible. There are many possible applications for these genes: you could try to recreate essential gene pathways in-vitro, or purify the proteins for functional studies, or create a synthetic MoClo-compatible Mycoplasma genome.

Recoding was done using scripts that stochastically assigned codons to amino acids. The codon table used was the FreqB table from "Design Parameters to Control Synthetic Gene Expression in Escherichia coli", which was used because it was shown to express proteins well and was recommended to us by JCVI. All genes where inserted into the BbsI:BbsI cloning sites of pOpen_build, which is individually available through our website. 395 of the 510 JCVI-Syn3A genes are included in this distribution, 14 of which do not exist in JCVI-Syn3.0. A gene map of this distribution is attached called "freegenes-jcvi-syn3a.csv". The genes added to JCVI-Syn3.0 to make JCVI-Syn3A are attached in excel spreadsheet "Genes added to JCVI-syn3.0 to make JCVI-syn3A.xlsx", which was kindly provided by John Glass at JCVI.

[1] John Glass, one of the leaders of the minimal genome project, noted: "Note that 2 of the genes we added to JCVI-syn3.0 to make JCVI-syn3A, which has a  more stable phenotype, are pseudogenes. I see no reason for you to remake those genes since they can just be PCR amplified from genomic DNA; although Drew may think we should make them anyway. Note that one of those pseudogenes appears to actually be synthesized. JCVISYN3A_0602, which is a pseudogene. We know that if this gene is removed from JCVI-syn3A we get the giant cell phenotype rather than the more normal JCVI-syn3A phenotype. We know because of multiple genome sequences, that there is a frameshift in the gene relative to the same gene in other Mycoplasma mycoides strains. Still, it could be that there is some RNA editing to produce the protein. Thus, I would like you to make the protein that we think JCVISYN3A_0602 was supposed to encode."
