  • ✓ RT-PCR: end-point PCR on new cDNA set (for repeat of p16 activation expt.)
  • ✓ Western: protein prep for 129-4
  • ✓ Senescence assay: refresh medium, rotenone/DMSO (flow cytometry tomorrow)

--> Aliquot 19.5 μL of each DNA mix to appro. wells --> Add 0.5 cDNA to each well --> PCR (96-well)

  • 95°C/ 3 min.
  • [95°C/ 30 sec., 57°C/ 30 sec., 72°C/ 20 sec.] x35
  • 72°C/ 3 min.
  • 4°C/ ∞


--> Result: Non-specific bands looks very bad compared to last successful trail (see 5/03/10). Could the problem be too much RNA for cDNA synthesis? Try again using less RNA.
