Expression experiments -David & Peter

Two expression experiments were done this week.

Exression experiment


Peter & David


For this experiment, the following B. subtilis 168 strains were used:





All cultures were grown overnight at 37 degrees Celsius in a shaker room, the appropriate antibiotics were used at all points in time during this experiment.


Overnight cultures were used to dilute to a B. subtilis culture of 0,1 OD, these strains were divided into ‘’induced’’ and ‘’non-induced’’. Induction with 0,5% subtilin was done at a OD of 0,5 (approximately 2,5 hours after growth of the 0,1 culture started).


After that the OD of the cultures was measured every .. hours.


Sample preperation


After .. hours, .. after induction, the samples were collected and processed. The following procedures were used:


Pellet preperation (PelletPrepGR)


Supernatant processing (SupernatantPrepGR)


Cell disruption (ExtractionCellWallsGR)


Lysozyme preperation (LysozymePrepGR)


Analysis was done using SDS-PAGE (SDS-PAGEGR) and THT staining (THTstainingGR).


Results:

Continous induction of chaplins

As a follow up experiment for the last biofilm induction Bacillus subtilis wit Chaplin E and chaplin H were grown while continuously adding subtilin to keep expression up. After 3hrs of growth they where induced with 1%subtilin. Every hour an additional 0.5%subtilin was added. As a negative control uninduced strains where used. Furthermore shaking cultures (induced and uninduced) where grown simultaneously to check OD levels. Only the chaplin E strain showed reduced growth, but no differences other than retarded growth were visible.
