To create a system which responds to ligand binding with a detectable voltage caused by a K+ flux.





Mutant Strains

Flame Photometer Calibration

K+ Concentrations

BioBrick Manipulation

OD600 Calibration

Next Steps

1. Ligate OsmY, RBS, and KDP in sequence into a vector. Possible difficulty due to the size of the KDP gene.

2. Determine the correct mutant to use:

  • Determine transformation efficiency of mutants.
  • Plot growth curves of mutants in normal/varying K+ conditions.
  • Estimate K+ uptake in varying K+ conditions.

3. Acquire ligand gated ion channel (GluR0)
