LAB WORK

  • Make competent E. coli cells
  • Transformation into competent cells
  • Plate transformed cells


Depending on how fast cells grow......

  • Night time
    • Analyze plates
    • innoculate 4ml LB/Amp

Procedures

Details of DH5 Strain E Coli

Regular cell membranes are not permeable to plasmids, so we much use ions (CaCl) to make the bacteria competent and able to accept foreign DNA.
Start: 2 vials of competent bacteria (500 uL each)
9 Transformations

dV      (5 uL)
dV + dI    (5 uL)

ddV + ddI     (10 uL)


  1. Aliquot 5 uL and 10 uL of ligation reactions into eppendorfs
    • For the undigested vector, dilute 100x so we can put in around 2 ng (because optical density of undigested vector is 86.4 ng/uL)
  2. Pipette 50 uL of competent DH5a E. coli bacteria into ligation reaction plasmid eppendorfs from above and mix by tapping gently
    • Do not pipette up and down
  3. Incubate on ice for 60 minutes
  4. Heat shock the bacteria in a 37C water bath for 30 seconds
