Team Allergy

Today, we did not do work with amiRNA and focused our efforts on hpRNA. We obtained undigested V0120 with a death gene insert from Team Flavor, and we have inserts from previous PCR reactions that all need to be digested and ligated into V0120.

Procedures:

  1. Digestion of Allergen Panel and V0120 with Xba and Pst
  2. Ligation of Allergen inserts into Vector Backbone
  3. Transformation of E. Coli

Transformation ( see transformation protocol)

Transformed amiRNA into turbo cells and plated on LB amp plates--will check for colonies tommorow (Plated at ~ 4pm)

Team Fence

B21 plasmid maxiprep

colony inoculated overnight and medium was centrifuged to obtain a pellet.

followed instructions as described in the QIAgen Plasmid Purification Handbook pg. 19-23. (2005 edition)

Team Flavor

Results of ligation and transformation of The Big Three (pENTCUP2, NosT, NosT + stop) with B15 backbone into E.coli

A few colonies were found on the pENTCUP2 + Backbone plate, NosT + stop and backbone plate, and b15 backbone control plate. Colonies were picked from the plates and placed in 3ml of LB and agarose in a culture tube. The tubes were placed in the 37°C shaker for 8 hours. 2 mL of LB+AMP was added to the cultures, bring the total volume to 5 mL of LB+AMP. Cultures were left to shake overnight.

  • The ligation of Miraculin was done at a 3:1 ratio (insert to vector) due to its larger size (~700 bp)
  • The ligation of Brazzein was done at a 2:1 ratio due to its smaller size (~200 bp)
