A 10mL solution of 0.015mM BSA and 0.25mM hydroauric acid was prepared in a 50mM Acetate buffer, pH 3.6. 1mL of this solution was place in a cuvette and set in the UV-Vis heated to 70°C. The reaction was run in the UV-Vis, and a spectra was taken every 30 minutes.
The remaining solution was placed in an oven at 80°C.
Last week group 2 ran a PCR which mutated green fluorescent protein to contain a cysteine after the enterokinase cleavage site.
Group 2 09/20/11 The product of this PCR reaction
was confirmed to be the desired mutated protein [http://openwetware.org/wiki/User:Elaine_Marie_Robbins/Notebook/CHEM-496/2011/09/21
Group 2 9/21/11]. This product was digested using DnpI <http://www.neb.com/nebecomm/products/productr0176.asp>. 1μL DnpI was added to
~50μL PCR product and the mixture was left at 37°C for 1 hour. This digested the wild type unmethylated DNA. The product was then
placed on ice.
5μL of the digested PCR product was added to 40μL NovaBlue competent cells. These cells have a high transforming efficiency.
The mixture was left on ice for 30 minutes, was heat shocked at 42°C for 30 seconds and then returned to the ice for 5 minutes.
250μL of SOC media was added and the mixture was shaken at 250rmp at 37°C for 1 hour.
A LB agar plate was prepared with 100μg/mL ampicillin, and then 100μL of the mixture was spread on the plate.
The plate was incubated at 37°C overnight.
