  • ✓ Protein prep: Gal4-EED transfections (from 2/02)
  • ✓ Western blot: 1. Polycomb-ATF lines, 2. Gal4-EED transfections
  • ✓ HEK293 #4 Luc cells: seeded culture from 2/20 not growing well; change to 20% FBS DMEM; thaw new tube, pellet in FBS, plate in 20% FBS DMEM



Western blot


> SDS-PAGE
--> Use 6μL protein for all samples
--> Make 100 mM DTT in 2x loading buffer (200 μL total; > enough for 6 μL/ gel lane)
--> Add 6 μL DTT + buffer to each protein sample
--> Incubate at 100°C/ 5 min.
--> Run gel @ 120 V


> Electroblot 1
--> Run @ 100 V for 1 hr., 10 min. (for large protein transfer)

Western blot 2/3/10
15 min. exposure

--> KAH130-2, KAH130-7, KAH131-6 are better, cleaner preps using more cells, but band undetectable. Dox induction showed very few RFP+ cells for 130-2 and none for 130-7 and 131-6
--> Repeat Western blot analysis after thawing and expanding select lines


> Immunostaining 2
--> Primary: mouse anti-EED, 1:5000, 5 mL (4°C/ overnight)
--> Secondary:

  • donkey anti-mouse-HRP, 1:10,000
  • anti-GAPDH-HRP, 1:10,000 (R.T./ 1 hr.)
