Son., culture #2 only, no DTT
T7, #2, no DTT

The negative tests showed one clear control band and a light background color which extended 3/4 of the way across the window. The background color was slightly darker in the area where the positive band would normally appear.
The Western blot showed bands at the appropriate molecular weight for hCG in all 4 lanes of promotor + RBS + synCG
