5/7/2010

  • LuxAB & LuxCDE operon agarose gel
  • Lane1: About2.1.kbp
  • Lane 2: The highest band- very faint- about 3.5kbp

Empty edinbrick vector for control.

  • LuxAB + edinbrick ligation.

28/7/2010

an update on LuxAB:

  • The transformations of Edinbrick are fine but all the luxABs failed (grew blue, not white on Xgal and did not glow, as of 27/7)/
  • Still have some digested LuxAB-ediI so re-did ligation and transformation.

  • The ligation had the same gel characteristics as previous luxAb-ediI ligations, e.x. it isn't visivle- not hopeful of this transformation working

4/8/2010

  • made minipreps of blue (negative colonies)- double digest and ran in comparison with pure edinbrickI
  • LacZ band dissapears but colonies still grow blue (WTF)
  • Has bands equaling to luxAB and EdiI but there was no glowing

12/8/2010 update on LumP:

  • still getting pink/red colonies from transformants
  • single digests give a band of about 3kb
  • double digests give a band of about 2.5 kb -highly confusing
  • and also, no sign on RFP despite red/pink growth.
  • Vector wa ssequenced and LumP is definately there.
