Discussion of Main Issues

(make list as we go along. add an issue if you want).

  1. effect on viability: osmolarity of solution (pressure exerted on cell membrane) -- use sorbitol?
  2. testing scFv: need a const. promoter with RBS -- biobrick -- do western!
    • jenny is point person, get materials to do western early next week
  3. scFv linker-fusion issue
    • why is the linker different than other scFvs?
    • can we introduce another linker, to allow fusion to preserve geometry
    • can we still introduce linker using primers? expensive
  4. Making knock outs: lambda red system. use a non kan, non amp resistance
    • Counter selectable markers:
      1. PurF (involved in uracil synthesis) -- grow in media containing 5'FOA, will be processed by PurF protein, keep cells from growing?
      2. PheS
