Summary

SOC Medium. Used in Bacterial Transformation.

Ingredients

  • SOB
  • 20 mM glucose

Protocol

  1. Follow directions to make 1 liter of SOB media
  2. After cooling medium to less than 50°C, add 20 ml filter sterilized 20% glucose solution


Alternative

  1. 2M glucose stock: dissolve 18 g glucose into 50 ml (final volume) ddH2O and filter-sterilize into sterile 50 ml tube
  2. aliquote in 2 ml tubes
  3. store at -20°C

Trivia

The "C" in SOC supposedly stands for catabolite repression due to the added glucose.
