The Daily Grind

Nucleic Acids Res. 2001, 29(9):e45.

  • Equation for quantifying gene expression levels in real time PCR: Pfaffl formula
  • Interesting note: PR1 gene expression may correlate with SAR, but not with ISR which is independant (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC144073/pdf/101571.pdf). Instead of Actigaurd as a control, we could be spraying plants with salicylic acid or ethylene! Another good paper, this time about bacteria as biocontrol/ISR agents: (http://aem.asm.org/cgi/content/full/71/9/4951). Huh -> Actiguard is an SAR stimulator, not ISR! (from the website: Actigard 50WG exhibits a unique mode of action which mimics the natural systemic activated resistance (SAR) response found in most plant species.)
  • Amy suggests I am taking over the California soil project, which means I will start trying to figure out/actually understand what is being done with that and get the technicians/students to start extracting DNA.
  • Streaking out glycerol stocks of Taq (Amp/Carb resistance) in E. coli, and just re-freezing at -80 all the other plasmids: pUC EUY in JM109, pDRIVE, GFPuv in pDRIVE, pCAMBIA, pART, pHANNIBAL, popCTL1::GUS in pCAMBIA (have tube of this in Agro too), Arabad prom in pDRIVE.
  • Streaking out plates of Kp342, Agrobacterium GV3101, E. coli JM109, P. putida UW4, Bacilus subtilus GB03 (growth promoting gas producer from Pare), E. coli Nissle, Gluconacetobacter azaotocaptans DS1, B. phytofirmans PsJN, A. diazotrophicus Nif MAd3A, and Azospirillum brasilensis SP7, NifA, and NifD
  • Their place in the glycerol stock box "Dr. Dav 1" is:
