Characterization B-C: Expression of PHIX174 promoters/UTRs fused to PX-UTR1-deGFP and PX-UTRX-deGFP.

  • Graphs of MGapt and deGFP vs. time from yesterday's experiment are simply beautiful.
  • However, the data is very noisy at the 1.11 nM level or below, even though the deGFP graphs show that expression is occurring down to at least the .37 nM level.
  • Therefore, I will do a range of malachite green at 1 nM, to try and improve the signal at lower plasmid concentrations.
  • 80 % cell free expression reaction
    • 30 μL extract (12May11)
    • 1.17 μL water
    • 0.9 μL 100 mM Mg-glutamate (1 mM final)
    • 2 μL 3 M K-glutamate (66.7 mM final)
    • 22.5 μL 6 mM amino acids mix (1.5 mM final)
    • 6.43 μL 14X 3-PGC buffer (1X final)
    • 4.5 μL PEG8000 40% (2% final)
    • 4.5 μL 20 nM plasmid (1 nM final), plasmid = pBEST-Pr-MGapt-UTR1-deGFP-T500
  • Aliquot 6 × 8 μL into 394-well plate and then add malachite green range:
    1. 2 μL water = 0 μM
    2. 2 μL 500 μM / 3^4 * 20% = 1.23 μM
    3. 2 μL 500 μM / 3^3 * 20% = 3.70 μM
    4. 2 μL 500 μM / 3^2 * 20% = 11.1 μM
    5. 2 μL 500 μM / 3^1 * 20% = 33.3 μM
    6. 2 μL 500 μM / 3^0 * 20% = 100 μM
  • Plate reader:
    1. Shake: fast double orbital 30s
    2. Read MGapt: 625/655 nM @ gain = 150 w/ settings
    3. Read deGFP: 485/528 nM @ gain = 61 w/ settings
    4. Shake: fast double orbital 30s
    5. Loop: 2-4 every 3 m for 12 h
    • settings = high lamp energy, endpoint, bottom reading, other settings default
