All samples prepared 06/03/2013, in addition to two modified microsphere solutions from Dr. Miller, were run on the FCS. Data was analyzed using N values, τ values, and C values were recorded. Tomorrow we will look in more detail at the time traces recorded directly from the instrument to look at differences in diffusion times.

Zinc Protoporphyrin Sample Prep: Calculations

Zinc protoporphyrin (ZnPPIX) samples will be prepared at the same concentrations, following the same procedure as the ThT samples.

  • 2.22μM ZnPPIX and 1.11265μM DNA

(5μM)V=(4.44μM)(300μL)<br.> V=266.4μL 5μM ZnPPIX in 33.6μL<br.> (53.1μ)V=(2.2253μM)(300μL)<br.> V=12.57μL DNA in 287.43μL<br.>

  • ZnPPIX, DNA and AuNP

2[ThT]:1[DNA]→ 2.068μM ZnPPIX<br.> 10% of 250μL=25μL (within 10% allows for accurate concentration comparison)<br.> Total solution volume: 275μL<br.> (2.068×10-6M)(275×10-6L)=5.31476×10-10moles ZnPPIX<br.> (5.31476×10-10moles)/(25×10-6L)=21.3μM ZnPPIX<br.> <br.> Make 21.3μM ZnPPIX:<br.> (5000μM)V=(21.3μM)(25μL)<br.> V=0.107μL in 24.9μL<br.> Add 25μL of 21.3μM ZnPPIX to 250μL DNA/AuNP solution<br.> <br.> Concentrations:<br.> DNA- 0.94μM<br.> AuNP- 12.55nM<br.> ZnPPIX- 1.9364μM<br.>

  • 2.22μM ZnPPIX

Samples will be prepared and spectra taken tomorrow.

Modifying Silica Coated AuNPs with HS-DNA Procedure- Changed(?)

  • Combine 150μL AuNPs@SiO2, 15μL APS and 235μL ethanol
  • Vortex solution for 30 minutes
  • Rinse sample three times by centrifugation at 7700g with ethanol and two times with KP buffer
  • Make a separate solution of 1 mg sulfo-SMCC in 400μL of KP buffer
  • Add SSMCC solution to AuNP solution
  • Vortex for 1 hour
  • Rinse twice with KP buffer
  • Rinse twice with PBS buffer
  • Combine sample with 50μL 20μM HS-DNA
  • Vortex for 1 hour
  • Rinse three times with PBS buffer
