  • ✓ RT-PCR: full EZH2 kd set
  • ✓ ChIP PCR: Input vs. myc IP (partial set)
  • ✓ Cell culture: expand HepG2 cells; split HEK Gal4EED into selective maintenance (2.0 μg/mL puro) and non-selective media

--> PCR (96-well)

  • 95°C/ 3 min.
  • [95°C/ 30 sec., 57°C/ 30 sec., 72°C/ 30 sec.] x32
  • 72°C/ 3 min.
  • 4°C/ ∞


RT-PCR 9/20/10

> Conclusions:

  • p16INK: responds slightly, but still very repressed (probably due to DNA methylation)
  • MMP12: appears to respond to EZH2 kd. Need to quantitate using Image J.
  • THPO: may respond somewhat, pretty active overall.
  • TNF: appears to respond to EZH2 kd. Need to quantitate using Image J.
  • 8-day knockdown trial #2: Need to repeat using more nt kd cDNA (loading control signal too low for good comparison)
  • EZH2: Need to repeat with less template DNA; amplification not within linear range

ChIP PCR 9/20/10

> Conclusions: GAPDH negative control comes down with 126-1 (double x-linked), slightly less with 132-8 (double x-linked) but not with 130-4 (single x-linked). As previously suspected, DMA plus formaldehyde may cause over-crosslinking. Continue only with single x-linked samples from now on.
