Thrombin-aptamer experiments

Questions / procedures

  • what percent gel? 10% to 20% polyacrylamide gels, no SDS (but would make for a good control)
  • what incubation conditions?
  • how much protein and DNA? protein at 1 μM, DNA at 2 μM
  • Coomassie stain

Experiments

number thrombin aptamer nanotube DNA-stained prediction protein-stained prediction
0 - - - no bands no bands
1 - - + slow band (nanotube) no bands
2 - + - fast band (aptamer) no bands
3 - + + slow band (aptamer-nanotube), traces of fast band (aptamer) no bands
4 + - - no bands fast band (thrombin)
5 + - + slow band (nanotube) fast band (thrombin)
6 + + - medium band (aptamer-thrombin), fast band (aptamer) medium band (aptamer-thrombin), traces of fast band (thrombin)
7 + + + very slow band (thrombin-aptamer-nanotube), slow band (aptamer-nantotube), traces of fast band (aptamer) very slow band (thrombin-aptamer-nanotube), medium band (aptamer-thrombin), traces of fast band (thrombin)
