Binding Site Design - August

01/08/2010

Gel1: diraPCR product analyzed on 1 % agarose gel (see gel1). The second, 25 cycle PCR was performed with different amounts of 12 cycle PCR product, resulting in different product ranges


  • diraPCR product from previous day was PCR purified by applying the Qiagen PCR purification Kit (elution in 32 ul nuclease-free water)
  • in parallel, 5 ul of PCR product were analyzed on a 1 % agarose gel; interestingly, the diraPCR product range can obviously be controlled by applying different amount on 12 cycle PCR product in the 25 cycle PCR. When 5 ul, 10 ul or 20 ul of 12 cycle PCR product were applied in the second PCR, the resulting product ranges where in between 100-400, 300-700 and 500-2000 respectively. When 2 ul or a lower amount of 12 cycle PCR product was applied, the product the subsequent 25 cycles was hardly visible.


  • PCR-purified product was digested with EcoRI and PstI and run on a preperative 1 % agarose gel (100 V/ 1 h) (see gel2).
  • The 200, 400 and 700 bp band of the lanes, appearing brightes under the UV light, were cut out of the gel and gel purified applying the Qiagen gel purification kit


  • a single colony from the pSB1A3 transformation (previous day) was picked and used for inocculating two 5 ml cultures (LB-Amp)
  • cultures were incubated for 8 h at 37 °C
  • subsequently, 200 ul of the first culture were used for inocculating a 200 ml overnight culture for maxiprep (LB-Amp)
  • 4 ml of the second culture were pelleted and used for MiniPrep (Qiagen); elution in 40 ul nuclease free water
  • 31 ul of the Miniprep product were digested with EcoRI and PstI and loaded on an preperative agarose gel; as control, 5 ul of undigested vector and 10 ul of each the digestion product of the 200, 400 and 700 bp bands (see above) were loaded as well (see gel3). The linearized vector has two additional bands at around 1.3 and 3.5 kb, which were not expected. Explanations could be the formation of dimers or even the contamination of the registry-well with a different construct.

Gel3: 200, 400 and 1000 bp band show only weak product bands. The uncut vector has, as expected, a size of ~2.1 kb; however, after cutting, a 1.3 kb and a 3.5 kb appear in addition to the expected 2.1 kb band of linearized vector.
Gel2: the 200, 400 and 700 bp band of the brightest lanes were cut out





















02/08/2010


  • transformation of the cloning that has been done on the previous day (raPCR hsa-mir-886_3p binding site pattern)
  • maxiprep of pSB1A3 (culture was inocculated on the previous day); elution was done with 1 ml water (miliQ, autoclaved)
  • digestion of 2 times 2 ug of pSB1A3 maxiprep DNA with EcoRI and PstI overnight at 4 °C


  • picking 20 colonies from the tranformed plates (tranformation on this day); 5 colonies of each the 200 and 400 bp band construct, 10 colonies of the 1000 bp construct for:
a) colony PCR (24 ul of water, 0.5 ul of each standards sequencing primer VF and VR, 25 ul of mastermix and bakterial colony)
b) inocculation of overnight miniprep LB cultures with the same, picked colonies




03/08/2010

Colony PCR; the length of the cloned binding site patterns is indicated (200, 400 or 1000 bp) as well as the number of the clone that was picked; K: negative control
Colony PCR; the length of the cloned binding site patterns is indicated (200, 400 or 1000 bp) as well as the number of the clone that was picked; K: negative control
  • loading colony PCR samples from the previous day on 1 % analytic agarose gel; sample 6 (400 bp) seems positive


diraPCR for constructing hsa-886-3p binding site patterns

the diraPCR was pipetted according to the following protocol in three repeats:

  • 1 ul of each binding site oligo
  • 0.5 ul of each stop oligo
  • 25 ul of Phusion MasterMix
  • add water to final volume of 50 ul


each of the three 12 cycle PCR repeats were performed according to the standard miRACLE PCR protocol

the three 12x repeats (1,2,3) were each split into two (1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B) and the 25 cycle PCR was performed according to the standard miRACLE PCR protocol

after PCR purification the subsequent PCR reaction was pipetted as follows:

  • 10 of 12 cycle PCR product
  • 0.5 ul of each stop oligo
  • 25 ul of Phusion MasterMix
  • add water to final volume of 50 ul
Gel: the 200, 400 and 1000 bp band of the brightest lanes were cut out





































04/08/2010

  • Samples from the 12cycle and 25cycle PCR were resolved on the 1% agarose gel.

12cycle PCR: 1ul of 5x loading dye + 2.5ul of purified DNA

25cycle PCR: 1ul of 5x loading dye + 5ul of PCR mixture

gel map: 1kbLadder - 12x(1)- 12x(2)- 12x(3)- DNAladderMix - 1A - 1B - 2A - 2B - 3A - 3B

  • Miniprep of the positive clone (400 bp, nr.6 ) from the previous day; sample is send for sequencing with standard primers VF2 and VR --> result is negative



05/08/2010

Digestion of the positive clone (previous day) and preperative digestion of vector pSB1A3; Ctr: Test Digestion of Vector pSB1A3, dig: Digestion of positive, no insert is dropping out (negative); 2.1 kb vector band was cut out, but unexpected ~1.2 kb band occured again. Therefor the vector was wasted


  • digestion of pSB1A3 with EcoRI and PstI according to the following protocol (6 repititions):
  • 6 ul (2 ug) of pSB1A3
  • 3 ul of NEB Buffer EcoRI
  • 3 ul of 10x BSA
  • 0.5 ul of each enzyme
  • 17 ul of nuclease-free water

Digestion is performed o/n @ 4 °C

  • repitition of colony-PCR with the cloned constructs from the 02/2010; 6 colonies (of each the 200, 400 and 1000 bp cloning plate) and a negative control were picked. A colony PCR was performed according to the protocol described on the 03/2010 and miniprep cultures were inocculated.
  • Inocculation of 200 ml maxiprep LB cultures of the plasmids pSi Fluor 2, pSi Fluor 2(star) and pSi RcSRRE

Colony PCR of single binding site cloning and binding site pattern cloning analyzed on a 1.5 % agarose gel. 9 of 10 single binding site colonies (2-10) show the right band. The binding site pattern doen't show a any band at all, possibly due to primer dimers.
  • The colony-PCR from the previous day (for single binding site and binding site pattern cloning) was analyzed on a 1.5 % agarose gel. For single binding site, 90 % of the colonies were positive, showing the right band at ~ 170 bp. The negative control was also negative, indicating the PCR worked fine wihtout any contamination. For the binding site patterns, all samples were negative, not showing any band 300 bp upwards. It is assumed, that this might be due to the fact, that the raPCR primes can form strong dimers, making the delicate colony PCR not work properly.
