For the induction system, our team decided to use the lac-operon/iptg construct because of its widespread use and the availability of information.

The induction construct consisted of a constitutive promoter (J23100, J23104, or J23105), a combination part of Ribosome Binding Site, Lac Repressor, double Terminators, and Lac Promoter (Q01121, Q04121), and Ribosome Binding Sequence (B0034, B0031, B0032).

Multiple versions of each part were used to generate a wide range of repressor concentrations, so as to allow for variation between the induction time-delay and degree of Apoptosis protein and Chitin Synthase synthesis.

The effectiveness of these constructs were tested in the modeling section.
