ADA preparation

  • All ADA procedures for this lab period was conducted by Puja Mody. The same approach was conducted during 09/19/2012
  • This was a two day procedure continued by Michael Nagle on the following day, 10/23/2012
  • The main concept for the procedure: E. coli was transformed to express ADA. After a 4 h. protein expression on an incubator shaker, the solution were centrifuge. The supernatant was collected and stored since this contained the soluble ADA while the pellets (cellular debris) were discarded.

Au/lysozyme solutions

  • The calculations were supposed to be posted on the notebook of Michael Nagle.
  • When the Au/lysozyme solutions were made, Nagle placed the rack in the Thermo Scientific incubator at 50°C for 4h.

AAS of Au/BSA solution of 10/17/12

  • The Au/BSA solutions were taken out from the oven. Mole ratios 60, 80, and 120 were the only solutions that exhibited a consistent, clear purple color with no fibers. This was indicative that all gold nanoparticles were in solution and none have nucleated to BSA.
  • Mole ratios 100 and others produced fibers, having solutions clear and colorless. The liquid was taken from each solution and transferred to falcon tubes; leaving some liquid suspending the fibers in the original tube. As a result, they were irregular amounts on each tube.
  • The irregular amounts created difficulty for centrifugation. Hours was spent in balancing the liquid for each pair of tubes.
  • Time went by and the fibers formed pellets on the bottom of the tubes. The formation of pellets was acceptable to allow to take AAS of the solutions.
  • The program for the Shimadzu AA-6200 Atomic Absorption Flame Emission was set on autozero. The flame was ignited exhibiting a blue-green color.
  • The blank used for the experiment was water.
  • The standards were run followed by an interval of sample-blank measurements. The calibration curve can be seen on the data section of Puja Mody's notebook.
