The objective of today's lab was to use a Fluorescence Assay to determine the rate a 1µM solution of a-chymotrypsin degrades AuNP fiber samples.
7 samples of AuNP fibers were spun down at 300rpm for 10 minutes.These fibers will be used for our 120min, 90min, 60min, 45min, 30min, 15min, and 10min samples. 21.0µL of 47.656µM a-chymotrypsin (in phosphate buffer) and 979.0µL of phosphate buffer was added to each sample tube and a blank Eppindorf tube (no fibers), making the final solution 1µM a-chymotrypsin.
A full lab procedure can be found in Nicole Bonan's notebook entry for today
Fluorescence for each sample was measured between the emission spectrum from 400 to 600nm, and the data is recorded below
