July 16 2015: TClaw Synthesis and polymerization Gel

Figure 15-TClaw Synthesis and polymerization Gel.  Figure 15 shows a gel image demonstrating a gel shift Plasmids to TClaw, indicating a conformational change. Nonetheless, there is polymerization indicating that the Tethers are causing the claws to aggregate together. This is not favorable for capsid binding.

Figure 16-TClaw synthesis less polymerization Gel. Figure 16 shows gel where TClaws were made using different annealing protocol (See Approach). TClaws show much less polymerization here, compared to Figure 15, indicating that tethers might be binding to desired locations.

Figure 18: Pre-SYBR staining using Fluorescent Hex Strand

Figure 18-TClaw and Hex Pre-Sybr Gel. Figure 18 shows same gel as Figure 17 before staining with SYBR. HEX strands and tethers are visible. Lanes 1-4 (TClaw) have less tethers present in the product, when compared to lanes 5-6 (NClaw), potentially because tethers are binding to the claw, and just excess tether can be seen in lanes 1-4.

Figure 19: Pre-SYBR image using CY3 Fluorescent Strand

Figure 19-TClaw and CY3 pre-Sybr Gel. Figure 19 shows the same gel image as Figure 18 before staining with Sybr. CY3 strand has a lower LOD than the HEX strand used in the previous trials. In this figure we can clearly see that CY3 is binding to tether, and tether is binding to claw. Little polymerization indicates that there is less aggregation between the claws.
