pSB1AC3-J45250/pSB3K3-J45400

pSB1AC3-J45250/pSB3K3-J45400 didn't grow.

pSB1AT3-J45700

Austin's pSB1AC3-J45700 didn't grow in Amp/Cm but did in Amp. Reshma's did (some).

Incubated at RT for 5 mins.

Step 5

Transformations into Invitrogen TOP10 cells Heat shock 1min.

Smell tests

  • Use 4.4μL stock IA-OH per 10mL culture
  • Use 40μL 0.5M SA per 10mL culture

These were started today

  • 100mL of each LB-Amp. In 500mL or 1L flask.

Dilutions

  • Used 1mL of pSB1AC3-J45200 (OD600nm=0.31) in each flask
  • Used 0.27mL of pSB1AT3-J45120 (OD600nm=1.11) in each flask
  • Used 0.27mL of pSB1AC3-J45250 (OD600nm=1.11) in each flask

Thus, each strain was diluted back to OD 0.003 in each flask.

Samples

  1. Coculture pSB1AC3-J45250 and pSB1AT3-J45120 without salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol
  2. Coculture pSB1AC3-J45250 and pSB1AT3-J45120 with salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol
  3. Coculture pSB1AT3-J45200 and pSB1AT3-J45120 without salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol
  4. Coculture pSB1AT3-J45200 and pSB1AT3-J45120 with salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol
  5. Culture pSB1AC3-J45250 without salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol
  6. Culture pSB1AC3-J45250 with salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol
  7. Culture pSB1AT3-J45200 without salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol
  8. Culture pSB1AT3-J45200 with salicylic acid and isoamyl alcohol

Results

  • J45200 has some smell in the presence of precursors but J45250 does not during exponential phase.
  • Coculture of pSB1AC3-J45200 and pSB1AT3-J45120 in the presence of precursors smells minty in exponential phase.
  • Coculture pSB1AC3-J45250 and pSB1AT3-J45120 in the presence of precursors maybe smells minty in exponential phase.
  • Coculture of pSB1AC3-J45200 and pSB1AT3-J45120 in the presence of precursors smells like banana in stationary phase.
  • Coculture pSB1AC3-J45250 and pSB1AT3-J45120 in the presence of precursors smells like banana in stationary phase. You could maybe argue that this one smells more like banana than the coculture of pSB1AC3-J45200 and pSB1AT3-J45120.
  • Both J45200 and J45250 smell like banana in stationary phase.

Yeast Stuff

  1. Grew up overnights of ADH1promoter+BSGD in pRS306.
    1. Oddly enough, only 3 of my 9 overnights grew up. Those 3 had been innoculated with a ton of cells.
  2. Miniprepped vectors and digested to linearize.
    1. All enzymes linearized the vectors beautifully, except NdeI only partially digested G5 miniprep.
    2. Thus, combine NcoI, NdeI, StuI, and XcmI digests into three master tubes (one each for G5, G6, G7), and transform on Nov. 1, after SB lunch.
  3. Yeast cells didn't grow up overnight.
    1. This was unexpected, as a parallel culture grown overnight in the same media grew fine. I can only conclude that the slow growth was due to the fact that I innoculated from a freezer stock, which I have never done before and so don't know what to expect.
    2. I will transform the yeast tomorrow (Wed), and cut even more corners to get a culture ready for Friday.

General to do list

  • Streak and start overnight culture of pSB1AC3-J45250/pSB3K3-J45400 again.
  • Cotransform pSB1AC3-J45250 and pSB3K3-J45400 again into IK cells
  • Make more LB media
  • Start overnight cultures of
    • pSB1AT3-J45120 (grows fast)
    • pSB1AK3-J45180 (do extra just in case)
    • pSB1AC3-J45250 (grows fast)
    • pSB1AT3-J45200 (do extra, grows slow)
    • pSB1AC3-J45700 (do extra, grows slow)
  • Autoclave some 250 mL flasks covered in foil - done
  • Start overnight of IK cells to make competent cells tomorrow
