Results from yesterday's ligation

• Got 1:1 ratio of ligation: negative control for both
• About 10 colonies total on every plate
• Forgot to take into account X/S vector self-ligation
• Will pick 4 colonies from each (H2B, LOV) to see if anything worked.
• In the mean time, will retry cloning, trouble shoot procedure with help from Dr. Haynes

• Repeat PCR of H2B and LOV inserts
• Note: Primers add a XbaI site upstream and the SpeI, NotI, and PstI sites downstream
1. H2B-GFP plasmid + BB_H2B fwd + BB_H2B rev
2. LOV plasmid + BB_LOV fwd + BB_LOV rev

PCR program:

• 95°C, 3 min.
• [95°C, 30 sec; 57°C, 30 sec.; 72°C, 30 sec.] x35 cycles
• 72°C, 3 min.
• 4°C ∞
• Clean up PCR products using the Zymo Clean and Concentrator kit
• Be sure to elute using 15 μL dH2O

1. H2B = 410
2. LOV = 461
• There were two samples made of each PCR reaction. The two from the H2B are shown on the left, and the two from the LOV are shown on the right.

Dephosphorylation (11/23/12)

1. pSB1A3 - X/S = 2000 bp
 Reagent Volume DNA (clean digest) 11.0 (~200 ng) 10x phos. buffer 1.5 phosphatase 0.5 dH2O 2.0 15 μL
• Incubate at 37°C/ 10 min.
• Heat inactivate at 75°C/ 2 min.
• [final] = 200 ng/μL / 15 μL = ~13 ng/μL

Ligation

• Use 20 ng of vector for each ligation = 1.5 μL pSB1A3
• Use 3x moles of H2B insert, relative to vector: xμL H2B insert = 3 * 410 bp H2B / 2000 bp pSB1A3 * 20 ng pSB1A3 / 16 ng/μL H2B = at least 0.8 μL H2B
• Use 3x moles of LOV insert, relative to vector: xμL LOV insert = 3 * 461 bp LOV / 2000 bp pSB1A3 * 20 ng pSB1A3 / 25 ng/μL LOV = at least 0.5 μL LOV
