  • Mutate ADA via PCR mutation
    • Mutated ADA is intended for nucleation of AuNPs
  • Produce chemiluminescence by adding luminol to HRP assay

PCR Mutation

  • The procedure for PCR Mutation was followed
    • The specifications of the forward primer used are as follows:


    • 1mL molecular biology grade water was added to the primer.
    • The volume of primer solution needed to prepare 1mL of 100ng/uL solution was calculated
      • 0.49mg/1000μL = 490ng/μL
      • 100ng/uL*1000uL / 490ng/uL = 204.08μL
    • Keyun Wang prepared 100ng/uL solution of the matching forward primer.
    • Two solutiosn were prepared with the following:
      • 1uL forward primer
      • 1uL reverse primer
      • 1uL wild strand ADA
      • 5uL 10x Pfu buffer
      • 40.6uL molecular biology grade water
      • 0.4Turbo DNA polymerase 25mM dNTPs
      • 1uL Turbo DNA polymerase solution added immediately before placing on thermocycler
    • Thermocycler was programmed as following:
      • Heat for 2 minutes at 95oC
      • Repeat the following 30 times:
        • 95oC for 30 seconds
        • -51oC for 30 seconds
        • 72oC for 60 seconds
      • Maintain at 72oC
      • Slowly cool to 0oC
    • Solutions were stored in the freezer.
