ADH

ADH was tested with Dodecanol (C12)

This yielded the following results:

Figure 1 – The results of a resting cell assay done on BioBrick BBa_K398018.


Conditions Native Native Heated Heated
Sample J13002 K398018 J13002 K398018
Total protein in well 3.303E-02 3.180E-02 7.351E-03 7.994E-03
Specific activity (kat/mg) 1.812E-11 2.606E-11 0.000E-00 5.041E-12

This shows two things. That E.Coli is partly able to degrade Dodecanol on it's own. And that this activity is greatly increased (43.83% normalized for the amount of protein) with the addition of the ADH gene. It is also clear that eventhough ADH is from a thermophilic organism it loses most (63.5%) of it's activity after heating. the raw data for these calculations can be seen below. (Although this decrease in activity could also be attributed to the host organism lacking the proper post translational modifications.)
