Measuring repression as a function of A600

  1. Grow an overnight culture of P20060.E0433
  2. Dilute back to A600 = 0.001 (as measured on the Nanodrop) in two tubes (1mL each)
  3. Let grow for 1 hour
  4. Prepare the permeabilization solution and aliquot out 80 μL per microfuge tube.
  5. Add 20 μL of 50 mM IPTG to both tubes and 1 μL AHL to one tube.
  6. Every hour, measure the A600 and add 20 μL to 3 microfuge tubes.
  7. Proceed with the Knight:Beta-galactosidase assay as normal.
  8. Plot the Miller Units as a function of A600.
