Bacterial lux operons encode five enzymes involved in the light-generating pathway. In nature, the lux genes appear to be repressed by the [http://2010.igem.org/Team:Cambridge/Bioluminescence/Background nucleoid protein, H-NS], and occur under [http://2010.igem.org/Team:Cambridge/Bioluminescence/Background quorum sensing control]. We wished to relief repression by H-NS to achieve brighter light outputs. We furthermore removed quorum sensing control to facilitate use of the part in biosensors under different regulatory inputs.
