The KAH126/U2OS cells in the 6-well plate that were induced to produce PcTF-RFP back on Monday are ready for the first round of harvesting. I'll be isolating the RNA from them and storing the RNA at -80°C before sending the samples out for analysis early next week.
To be clear, I currently have two batches of KAH126/U2OS induced by doxycycline. One batch was inoculated on 1/16 and induced 1/19. I'm going to be harvesting three of the wells from that batch for RNA sequencing today. The other batch was inoculated on 1/20 and induced 1/22. I've taken fluorescence microscopy photos of both experiments.
Also need to passage the SKNSH culture from PS-β to PS-1 and the KAH126/U2OS culture from PS-4 to PS-5.
Observations, measurements, placeholder info etc. go here.

Wells 3 and 4 were transfected with a plasmid made from a different batch than wells 1 & 2, thus the greatly reduced efficiency.
RNA extraction of wells 1, 2 and 4 from the KAH126/U2OS plate induced on 1/19 (first set of images, above) was successful. RNA is in the -80°C freezer awaiting analysis.
