Objective

To measure the activity of pepsin in solution and pepsin-AuNPs in solution.

Description

  • Make a 37°C water bath to hold at least 3 test tubes (same size as yesterday)
Pepsin Digest
  1. Make 3 1mL dilutions for regular pepsin in 0.01N HCl at the following concentrations:
    • 10μg/mL
    • 15μg/mL
    • 20μg/mL
  2. Make 3 1mL dilutions for pepsin-AuNPs in 0.01N HCl at the following concentrations:
    • 10μg/mL
    • 15μg/mL
    • 20μg/mL
  3. Make blank for pepsin
    • 2.5mL hemoglobin solution in test tube in 37C bath
    • 5mL perchloric acid
    • 0.5mL pepsin dilution
    • Remove from bath after 5 minutes
    • Filter
    • Take UV-vis spectrum
  4. Make blank for pepsin-AuNPs
    • 2.5mL hemoglobin solution in test tube in 37C bath
    • 5mL perchloric acid
    • 0.5mL pepsin-AuNPs
    • Remove from bath after 5 minutes
    • Filter
    • Take UV-vis spectrum
  5. Make test for pepsin
    • 2.5mL hemoglobin solution in test tube in 37C bath
    • 0.5mL pepsin dilution
    • Wait 10 minutes
    • 5mL perchloric acid
    • Remove from bath after 5 minutes
    • Filter
    • Take UV-vis spectrum
  6. Make test for pepsin-AuNPs
    • 2.5mL hemoglobin solution in test tube in 37C bath
    • 0.5mL pepsin-AuNPs
    • Wait 10 minutes
    • 5mL perchloric acid
    • Remove from bath after 5 minutes
    • Filter
    • Take UV-vis spectrum
  7. Calculate the number of units/mg of active enzyme in each sample
    • Units/mg = [A280(Test) - A280(Blank)]*1000/[10minutes*mg enzyme in reaction mixture]

  • Centrifuge 1mL of each ratio of NPs for 30 minutes
  • Take UV-vis spectrum of each ratio sample
  • Save the sample
