Following up on yesterday's work, today I'll be taking photographs of the transfected SKNSH cultures and checking for evidence of transfection, as shown by red fluorescence. If the samples show sufficiently high transfection efficiency, I'll move them into 10cm dishes to grow for 10 days, collecting samples at days 5 and 10 for RNA-seq and flow cytometry.
I'm also continuing to grow the DH5α cells for harvesting of plasmid.
passaging adherent cells
Growth of DH5α containing PcTF-RFP expressing plasmid was a success. Both liquid colonies grew as well (not shown).
Plasmid concentration for KAH126/MV2:
Yield is fairly low, at 38 ng/μL and 31 ng/μL for samples 1 and 2, respectively. Samples have been placed in the -20 freezer in the main lab, in Ben's Box.
SKNSH samples transfected with PcTF-RFP and one negative control well have each been split into two 10cm cell culture dishes, for a total of 8 samples. The first round of collection will be on Day 5 post-transfection, which is Monday January 12th. The second round of collection will be on Day 10, Saturday January 17th.
