== Experiment 3 (01/07/2013)==
 +
 +
FTC was fixed for big beads. Find tether center (FTC) is a step sequence program which finds a tether center, centers the trap and acquires data for repeatable geometer. This experiment I used big beads (radius 520 nm).
 +
 +
===Sample preparation===
 +
Dual-chamber sample.

 +
# Flow beads, wait for 12 min; H2O and D2O
 +
# Flow BGB 50 ul-Twice, wait none; H2O and D2O
 +
# Seal it
 +
 +
===Result:===
 +
* Few tether, fewer than small bead sample, for big bead flow 1XPOP in the end not the BGB.
 +
* Find tether center was fixed and worked great with this sample.
 +
====Data====
 +
* Data acquisition parameters: DNA4.4kb(110ng/ml; 02/11/11) ,r=520nm (bead radius) ,medium h2o and d20,tch/BH886nm (trap center height or bead center height from surface),fh700nm (focal height from surface). TCH/BH = trap center offset + focal height from surface (=186+700), The best focal height is 600nm which gives TCH/BH of 786 nm. This height is not too height or too low.

== Experiment 6 (01/15/2013)==
 +
I did two overstretching experiments today with H2O and D2O with 4.4kb (110mg/ml;02/11/11) DNA. From tomorrow i will be using new DNA so i think this is the last experiment i have with this DNA, since it is getting old now.
 +
 +
Overstretching in H2O and D2O worked fine but D2O was lot better than H2O.

 +
 +
====Result:====
 +
Sample is very successful tethering wise, lot of tethers, but most of them broke during the beginning of overstretching after a good FTC. Very very few tethers overstretched; 11 good tethers out of 75 attempts (15% efficiency).  I selected some of the beast segments; force goes from 59 to 66pN at 1750nm LDNA at which the DNA starts overstretching but the data is good within the error range of stiffness. This data is analyzed under quick conversion, because we have not got the geometry going so the data might change.
 +
 +
Some tethers overstretched multiple times, i noticed every time the same tethers is overstretched the overstretching force depletes, but that is not case. I looked many many multiple overstretches and they looked very alike.

Introduction

This Page contains all the information regarding DNA-Overstretching experiments and results.

More on Optical Tweezers [1]


Proof of DNA-tethering

Two video presents good DNA-tethers in H2O and D2O. For some reason D2O tethers look little better. Each moving bead has a ds-DNA tether which is roughly 1500nm long (4.4kb; 110ng/ml; 02/11/11). The bead size is 530nm diameter. This sample is prepared in water and heavy water for DNA-overstretching experiments which i will discuss below.


Experiments

Experiment 1 (01/04/2013)

Prepare some new buffers and attempt DNA-tethering in H2O and D2O with 265nm beads (bead radius).

Buffer preparation

BGB is good only for few weeks and it has been over 2 months since i made it last, so i am going to make new BGB and antidig. For more information go to Buffer preparation for DNA overstretching and unzippingexperiments[2]

BGB

  • H2O

50mg of BGB + 10ml of H2O 1X POP=5mg/ml BGB 1XPOP H2O 10ml

  • D2O

50mg of BGB + 10ml of D2O 1X POP=5mg/ml BGB 1XPOP D2O 10ml

Antidig

Same for both H2O and D2O since PBS is in H2O only.

20ul of aliquots + 180ul of PBS H2O=200ul of antidig H2O

Sample preparation

Dual-chamber sample. For more information go to sample preparation for DNA overstretching & unzipping experiments: [3]

Bead:

  • H2O:

1.5ul of 265nm bead (1:5) from stock+13.5ul of BGB H2O=15ul of bead H2O (1:5o)

  • D2O:

1.5ul of 265nm bead (1:5) from stock+13.5ul of BGB D2O=15ul of bead D2O (1:5o)

DNA: ds-DNA 4.4kb (110ng/ml;02/11/11)

  • H2O;

1ul of DNA from stock (1:10) + 9ul of 1XPOP H2O =10ul of DNA H2O (1:100)

  • D2O;

1ul of DNA from stock (1:10) + 9ul of 1XPOP D2O =10ul of DNA D2O (1:100)

Procedure

  1. Flow anti-dig 12 ul wat for 6min; H2O and D2O
  2. Flow BGB 50ul twice, wait for 2 min; H2O and D2O
  3. Flow DNA 10 ul, wait for 12 min; H2O and D2O
  4. Sonicate beads 90sec

Experiment 6 (01/15/2013)

I did two overstretching experiments today with H2O and D2O with 4.4kb (110mg/ml;02/11/11) DNA. From tomorrow i will be using new DNA so i think this is the last experiment i have with this DNA, since it is getting old now.

Overstretching in H2O and D2O worked fine but D2O was lot better than H2O.

Experiment:1

Overstrething in H2O

Sample preparation

Single-chamber sample.

Bead:

  • H2O:

1.5ul of 265nm bead (1:5) from stock+13.5ul of BGB H2O=15ul of bead H2O (1:50)

DNA: ds-DNA 4.4kb (110ng/ml;02/11/11)

  • H2O;

1ul of DNA from stock (1:10) + 9ul of 1XPOP H2O =10ul of DNA H2O (1:100)

Procedure

  • The procedure is same as experiment 5(01/10/13)

Result:

Sample is very successful tethering wise, lot of tethers, but most of them broke during the beginning of overstretching after a good FTC. Very very few tethers overstretched; 11 good tethers out of 75 attempts (15% efficiency). I selected some of the beast segments; force goes from 59 to 66pN at 1750nm LDNA at which the DNA starts overstretching but the data is good within the error range of stiffness. This data is analyzed under quick conversion, because we have not got the geometry going so the data might change.

Some tethers overstretched multiple times, i noticed every time the same tethers is overstretched the overstretching force depletes, but that is not case. I looked many many multiple overstretches and they looked very alike.

Data:
  • Data acquisition parameters: DNA4.4kb(110ng/ml; 02/11/11) ,r=265nm ,medium H2o,TCH/BH 574nm,FH 200 ,loading rate .001, Temp=75~76 degF.
  • Data is in file: 1301115\001 to 006.
  • Good selected segments are: (0000-1,10),(0001-3,10,12),(0002-2,6),(0003-0,12,13, (0004-5)
  • Repeated overstretching segments (the segments in which same tether overstretched multiple times) are:(0000-(3,4),(10,11,12)); first number shows the overstretch first time consecutive ascending number shows 2nd, 3rd, so-forth and so-on time overstretch.

Experiment:2

Overstrething in D2O

Sample preparation

Single-chamber sample.

Bead:

  • D2O:

1.5ul of 265nm bead (1:5) from stock+13.5ul of BGB D2O=15ul of bead D2O (1:50)

Procedure

  • The procedure is same as experiment 5(01/10/13)

Result:

Sample is very successful tethering wise, lot of tethers, most of the tethers overstretched unlike the H2O sample. I got 31 good overstretches out of 84 attempts (40% efficiency); 3 times better than H2O sample. I selected some of the beast segments; force goes from 63 to 69pN at 1750nm LDNA at which the DNA starts overstretching but the data is good within the error range of stiffness. This data is analyzed under quick conversion, because we have not got the geometry going so the data might change. On average the overstretching force is reported higher in D2O than H2O.

Data:
  • Data acquisition parameters: DNA4.4kb(110ng/ml; 02/11/11) ,r=265nm ,medium D2o,TCH/BH 574nm,FH 200 ,loading rate .001, Temp=77~78 degF.

  • Good selected segments are: 0007-6, 0008-3,(0009-0,1,5,10), (0010-7,10), 0011-4, (0012-1,3,10) 0013-3.
  • Repeated overstretching segments are:
