Summary

  • Protein extraction
  • Plate reader measurements: RFP and Bradford (protein)



Protein extraction from transfected cells

  • Warmed media, PBS, Trypsin to 37°C.
  • Warmed protease inhibitor cocktail (protease arrest) and protein extraction buffer to room temperature.
  • Removed six well plate from incubator. Two wells (W1, W2) have transfected cells.
  • Aspirated off media from each well.
  • Washed first three wells with 1mL PBS (W1, W2, Negative control).
  • Aspirated off PBS. Added 0.5mL Trypsin. Incubated for 3 minutes at 37°C.
  • Added 5mL media to each well. Pipetted up and down to remove remaining adherent cells.
  • Transferred cells from each well into their own 14mL conical tube.
  • Pelleted cells by spinning at 1000 x g for 3 minutes.
  • Aspirated off supernatent leaving ~100μL covering the pellet.
  • Resuspended cells in tube by flicking. Placed these cells on ice when not in direct use for following steps.
  • Labeled three 1.5mL tubes (W1, W2, Neg).
  • Added 500μL protein extraction buffer to each tube.
  • Added 5μL protease inhibitor cocktail (100x) to each tube. Inverted to mix.
  • Aspirated 505μL combination mixture and dispensed into corresponding tube containing cell pellet. Pipetted up and down to mix.
  • Aspirated total buffer, protease inhibitor, resuspended cell pellet and dispensed back into corresponding 1.5mL tube.
  • Repeated for other two samples.
  • Centrifuged samples at max rpm for five minutes in cold room.
  • Labeled three new 1.5mL tubes.
  • Transferred supernatant to new tube being careful not to disturb the pellet at the bottom of each tube.
  • Used in Bradford Assay and stored in the -20°C.
