Characterization A: Expression of PHIX174 promoters fused to MGapt.

  • Hybridized sense and antisense ssDNAs to make NheI-MGapt-XhoI linker.

Characterization B: Expression of PHIX174 promoters fused to UTR1-deGFP.

  • Continuing with minipreps and sequencing of the transformants specified on 07/11/2012.

Characterization C: Expression of PHIX174 promoters fused to UTRX-deGFP.

Hypothesis 2: Gene L is necessary for phage propagation.

  • Performed whole plasmid PCR on ΦX174 using the new primers with pWhitescript positive control (Quickchange II kit).

Hypothesis 3: Gene L codes for a ~6 kDA protein.

  • Waiting on oligos to create COIL1 and COIL2 linkers.

Hypothesis 4: Gene L complexes with cell membrane.

  • Experiment 4: Simga28 cascade cell free expression in vesicles of L-deGFP and L. Followup with in vivo expression in cells observed by microscope (use PT7 promoter on pIvex2.3d).
  • Constructions in stock:
    • pBEST-Ptar-UTR1-L-eGFP (109 nM)
  • Constructions needing amplification:
    • pBEST-OR1OR2Pr-UTR1-simga28-T500 (Mark)
    • pIvex2.3d-deGFP (Mark)
  • Constructions needing to be made or obtained:
    • pIvex2.3d-L
    • pIvex2.3d-L-deGFP
  • Result: Preliminary results show binding of L-eGFP fusion to vesicle membrane.
