Constructing Basic Parts

Nikit Patel 11:30, 15 February 2011 (EST)

Thought of the day: Did my first PCR after 3 years at Berkeley!

  • Create 100uM stock of oligos: P_sbp_inR and SS50r
  • Followed Cloning by PCR Protocol:
- Used construction files below to setup PCR
- Did first part of SOEing for P_sbp basic part
- Thermocycler Program: 2K55
Construction of P_sbp BglBrick basic part sbb1124
PCR ss50f/P_sbp_inR on MG1655	(247 bp, gp = A)
PCR P_sbp_inF/ss50r on MG1655	(492 bp, gp = B)
---------------------------------------------------
PCR ss50f/ss50r on A+B	                (710 bp, EcoRI/BamHI)
Sub into pBjh1601KC-Bca1144 		(EcoRI/BamHI, 3131+910, L)
Product is pBjh1601KC-sbb1124           {P_sbp}

Thought of the day: Is it me or is ADB buffer like magic? It annihilated the gel so fast!

  • P_sbp Products A and B
- Ran preparative gel
- Lanes 2 and 3 from gel (below) confirmed sizes around 250 and 500 bp respectively
- Bands were cut
- Performed Zymo Gel Purification on both A + B
- Setup and run PCR for SOEing using Zymo Gel Purified DNA as template. (Used 2K55 mode for thermocycler)
  • P_fadL Products
- Ran analytical gel (prepped 2uL DNA + 5uL Dye)
- Band in lane 2 from gel (below) confirmed size around 600 bp
- Perform Regular Zymo Cleanup

Thought of the day: Nikit + Gary = Best SOEing partners!

  • P_sbp SOEing PCR products
- Ran analytical gel
- Lane 2 from gel (below) confirmed size around 750 bp. (SOEing worked!)
- Performed Regular Zymo Cleanup


Nikit Patel 14:29, 22 February 2011 (EST)

Thought of the day: Shout out to Professor Anderson for redoing our PCRs. We will never forget this.

  • PCRs were redone. Analytical Gel Lane 14 (below) confirms successful PCR product
  • P_sbp (Part sbb1124)
- Performed analytical gel
- Lane 1 below confirms SOEing worked
  • P_fadL (Part sbb1104)
- Performed EcoRI/BamHI Digest
- Digest run for 1 hour in thermocycler
- Run preparative gel (below)
- Added 600 uL of ADB buffer to Lane 5 band

Thought of the day: It's Vini's birthday today! I also found out that Gary is a funny guy.

  • P_sbp (Part sbb1124)
- Gels were cut and loaded with ADB buffer by Professor Anderson the day before
- Performed EcoRI/BamHI Digest
- Digest run for 1 hour in thermocycler
- Ran preparative gel. Lane 1 is my band! (below)
- Performed rest of Zymo Gel Purification
- Labelled as "sbb1124 Cut and Cleaned"
  • P_fadL (Part sbb1104)
- Performed rest of Zymo Gel Purification
- Eluted in 8 uL of water
- Labelled as "sbb1104 Cut and Cleaned"

Thought of the day: Sad that UCB Ph.D candidates are visiting today and I'm not one of them.

- Used pBjh1601KC-Bca1144 vectors for both
- Incubated on bench top for 30 minutes
- Shared cells with Gary
- Heat shocked for 120 seconds

Thought of the day: Marcus was acting really hyper during lab. It was entertaining!"

  • Plate had many colonies.
  • Four colonies were picked from each plate for us
  • Performed Miniprep Purification on the 8 cultures

Thought of the day: BioE 100 midterm is stealing my mind away from BioE 140L midterm!

  • Lane 11 doesn't look good.
  • Therefore, we will be putting in sbb1104 #1/2 and sbb1124 #1/2 for sequencing
