  • Problems with R0010 gel extraction ,we will try ligation, we will do another copy of R0010

Ligation: R0010 -> F-OriT_J23066_OriT_pSB1A2

  • Ligate the R0010 fragment and F-OriT_J23066_OriT_pSB1A2 vector
  • use super fast T4 DNA ligase

1   µl     F-OriT_J23066_OriT_pSB1A2 vector
7   µl     R0010 fragment

  • 16℃ for 20 min!

Amplification Culture of PlacI_F-OriT_J23066_OriT_pSB1A2 (fast T4 ligase)

  • control plate received clones. this ligation experiment failed.
  • Just for test:I will select a PlacI_F-OriT_J23066_OriT_pSB1A2 Colonies from Plate, Culture in liquid LB,waiting for mini-prep.

result:failed

  • after mini-prep & digestion
  • from left to right:
  1. PlacI-I741051 FAILED -1 @ EcoRI/PstI
  2. PlacI-I741051 FAILED -2 @ EcoRI/PstI

Lock & Key By Yu Tao

Sequencing

  • Send the precultured R0010<-J23066 to Invitrogen for sequencing.
  • Use vf2 primer.

Key1 & Lock1 Efficiency Test

Rough Result of Key1 & Lock1 Efficiency Test

  • Overnight incubation.
  • Tip a drop of overnight liquid culture of each sample on a slide.
  • From top to bottom:
  1. I7100-DH5a
  2. R0010.J23066(Key)-DH5a
  3. R0010.J23066(Key) and R0040.J23078.E0040.B0015(Lock)-DH5a induced by IPTG
  4. R0010.J23066(Key) and R0040.J23078.E0040.B0015(Lock)-DH5a not induced by IPTG
  5. DH5a negative control.

Image:Example.jpg

  • Conclusion: It seems that most of the results conform to the expectation. The lock can really 'lock' the EGFP, and the key can unravel it. However, IPTG appears to be usefulless, or even has negative effect on the efficiency of key. Nevertheless, a more accurate test will be carried out at the end of August.

Prepare Competent Cells

  • There are only 20 or so tubes of competent cells left.
  • Newly prepare about 50 tubes of competent cells, 100uL/tube.
  • Trasform 1uL I7100 minipreped plasmids to see the efficiency.

PCR J01010 and J01008

  • The primers of new key(J01008) and new lock(J01010) have arrived.
  • We are going to zip the primers together in order to produce a longer integral part.
  • All primers: stored as 100uM.
  • PCR system contains:
