  • Demiwater 300ml
  • Plating ΔrdeAB spores 10^5 /plate

-Incubate for 7 days at 30 °C

-Harvest mycelium with razorblade

Expression Chaplins in NZ8900

-Grow O/N culture in Ty with antibiotics (Km5 and Cm5)

-Measure OD600 (with 0.9 ml with 100 μL of O/N culture, number *10=OD)

-Inoculate 15ml TY (with ab) in 100 ml flask to OD=0.1

-Grow till OD600 is approx. 0.5

-Take 2 ml t=0 sample

-Induce with 1% subtiline

-Continue growing

-Take 2 ml samples every hour

Sample treatment

-Take 2ml sample and spin down Supernatant -1.5 ml ml of supernant in separate cup, rest of supernatant can be discarted (at this point you can store in freezer)

-Do TCA precipitation until drying pellet after washing with aceton

-Continue with TFA treatment

Cell pellet

-TFA treatment
