Results from last week's ligation

  • None of the colonies on any plates grew
  • Will retry cloning for each (H2B, LOV) by using the Gibson assembly method

  • Repeat PCR of H2B and LOV inserts with new primers
  • Note: Primers add a XbaI site upstream and the SpeI site downstream
  • Final Gibson assembly products
  1. pSB1A3 left end / H2B / LOV +His tag/ pSB1A3 right end
  2. pSB1A3 left end / LOV / H2B +His tag/ pSB1A3 right end
  • For H2B-LOV construct
  1. H2B-GFP plasmid + 1A3/H2B fwd + H2B/LOV rev
  2. LOV plasmid + H2B/LOV fwd + LOV+his/1A3 rev
  • For LOV-H2B construct
  1. H2B-GFP plasmid + 1A3/LOV fwd + LOV/H2B rev
  2. LOV plasmid + LOV/H2B fwd + H2B+his/1A3 rev

Performed table reactions twice: once for those used in H2B-LOV construct, once for those used in LOV-H2B construct
