  • Silica-coating procedure from 05/24/2013 performed
    • MHA attachment performed, silica-coating reaction to be performed tomorrow
  • Sodium phosphate buffer, pH 9, made

Buffer Preparation and Calculations

Sodium phosphate buffer, pH 9, to be used for the modification of HS-DNA and AuNPs@SiO2 procedure.
monosodium phosphate- MW: 119.98g/mol
disodium phosphate- MW: 141.96g/mol, pKA: 6.82
buffer- pH 9,concentration 10mM

9=6.82+log([base]/[acid])
151.36=(10-[base])/([acid])
[acid](151.36+1)=10
[acid]=0.066mM
[base]=9.935mM

Use 0.0094g NaH2PO4 and 1.19188g Na2HPO4 in 1L water.

Chemicals Needed and Safety

  • Ethanol
  • 15μL APS ((3-aminopropyl)trimethoxysilane)
  • 1mg SSMCC (sulfosuccinimidyl-4-N-maleimidomethyl cyclohexane-1-carboxylate)
  • Potassium phosphate buffer, pH 7.4
  • Sodium phosphate buffer, pH 9
  • 150μL Silica-coated AuNPs
  • 50μL of 20μM HS-DNA

Procedure

  • Combine 150μL AuNPs@SiO2, 15μL APS, and 235μL ethanol
  • Sonicate solution for 30 minutes
  • Rinse sample three times by centrifugation at 7700g (9081.99rpm) with ethanol and two times with sodium phosphate buffer, pH 9 (SPB)
  • Make a separate solution of 1 mg sulfo-SMCC in 400μL of SPB
  • Add SSMCC solution to AuNP solution
  • Sonicate for 1 hour
  • Rinse by centrifugation at 7700g (9081.99rpm) twice with SPB
  • Rinse by centrifugation at 7700g (9081.99rpm) twice with potassium phosphate buffer, pH 7.4 (KPB)
  • Combine sample with 50μL 20μM HS-DNA
  • Sonicate for 1 hour
  • Rinse by centrifugation at 7700g (9081.99rpm) three times with KPB
  • Re-suspend in 150μL KPB

Since times for centrifuging were not specified, 5 minute intervals will be done to determine appropriate length of time.
Volumes may be doubled to avoid waste of SSMCC by using only 1 of 2mg.
