BROM F1 (F1) and (F2)


Day -8 (Oct 27th Mon):

                           10/27/2008 (5:00 - 8:00) HAVC system test, no access to building
      <Kevin>              10/27/2008 (14:00 - 15:00) Based on Western Blooting results, Y98C colony 9 was chosen for fermentation. 
                                                      Based on activity screening, D5 (double horns) colony 5 was chosen for fermention.

Day -7 (Oct 28th Tue):

      <Kevin>              10/28/2008 (14:00)     Decided not to plate the yeast to reselect colonies for both Y98C and D5 
                                                  because fresh stocks were recently made.

Day -6 (Oct 29th Wed):

    Discussion about Feeding strategy for Mutants (Mut+/Muts) 
 :There are couple of referenes I recommend you to read. References regarding Feeding: Media:DAnjou_(2000)_Biotech._Bioeng._(72).pdf Media:Loewen_(1997)_Appl._Microbiol._Biotechnol._48_p480.pdf Effect of Ethanol or Acetate on Protein Expression in Pichia pastoris: Media:Meagher_(2001)_J._Bioscience._Bioeng._92_p337.pdf

                           10/29/2008 (19:30 - 19:40)  Expected Power Outrage, No access to building
                           10/29/2008 (19:45 - 22:45)  Multiple stop/start for breif duration 

      <Kevin>              10/29/2008 (18:45 - 19:45)  The papaers above suggested two valuable points for Picha fermentation. 
                        1. Because Mut+ strains also utilize MeOH as a carbon sourse, it would be better to limit the cells growth to a 
                           relatively lower O.D. (O.D. = 6) before passage to BMMY from BMGY. 
                        2. Acetic acid was suggested to reduce protein production in Pichia. 
                           Therefore, we decided to use  1M  HCl to regulate the pH.

Day -5 (Oct 30th Thu):

      <Kevin>              10/30/2008 (12:00)     Prepared 500mL MD media for first stage cell culturing and 
                                                  500mL BMGY for second stage culturing before fermentation for 
                                                  each mutant. 
                           10/30/2008 (13:00)     Decided with Sung-Hye to set up glycerol pump for O.D. Control.

    Discussion about MeOH Concentration 
 : It turned out that MeOH concentration used for BROM F1 F1/F2 was 20 times diluted. That means that MeOH calibration is off and concentration of MeOH is 20 times lower than we think. (It also explains why MeOH pumps went "safty cut-off") Sung-Hye discussed with Kevin and decided to continue current (F1) fermentation by re-calibrating MeOH with concented sample and hope that cells weren't starved too much. Kevin's microscopic observation tells that cells are still deviding (budding) which is a good sign.
      <Kevin>              11/7/2008 (15:30)       Prepare 5x MeOH for refill (1050 ml): We did not use.

                                                  Western Blotting results indicate that production was not as much as expected, 
                                                  and the amount of protein decreased from Nov. 7 (Day 4).
