In vivo IPTG: Compare cultures that <br />have less of it. </li> <li>Determine XylE and TEV production (in vivo). <br />Use robot to induce production and measure <br />activities TEV (FRET pairs with TEV link). </li> <li>Degradation of XylE (in vivo or in vitro if cell division <br />is not taken into account). Monitoring activity, then <br />approximate the concentration. Remove the IPTG. </li> <li>Determine TEV kinetics (k<sub>cat</sub>, K<sub>m</sub>) on <br />XylE-GFP (in vitro).</li> </ol> </div> </body> </html>
