[Part:BBa_K385003] Phage lambda N-peptide

N-peptide from phage lambda. This protein coding sequence functions in a phage transcriptional termination control mechanism, by binding to an RNA stem loop (B-box) in a sequence specific manner. This peptide can be used as part of a translational control strategy for eukaryote gene expression. The B-box sequence should be placed in the 5' leader of a gene whose expression is to be controlled, and the N-peptide is expressed in trans to regulate ribosomal scanning.
