A U2OS culture in a 6-well plate was transfected with the following plasmids:

  • Wells 1 & 2: pMaxGFP
  • Wells 3 & 4: KAH187-MV8 (CFP with a CMV promoter)
  • Wells 5 & 6: KAH126-MV2 (PcTF-RFP with a CMV-tet promoter (should be always on))

Today I took images of the six wells. The CFP lamp does not appear to be functional on the microscope, but there is sufficient overlap of fluorescence between CFP and GFP that I could image using GFP for the samples treated with KAH187-MV8.

Positive controls worked fine, but still no transfection with KAH126 plasmid. The mystery continues...
