F. Expression of Phenotypes

  1. Using degradation tags on proteins such as GFP
  2. Genomic Insertion Protocol
  3. M9CA media (J864-100G from Amresco) + 2mM MgSO4 (2mL/L of 1 M MgSO4) + 0.1 mM CaCl2 (0.1 mL/L 1 M CaCl2) and optional 0.2% glucose (10 mL/L 20% stock solution).
  4. When inducing with anhydrotetracycline (aTc), the stock solution from Clonetech (#631310) is 2 mg/mL in 50% EtOH, which is a 10,000X stock solution. Working concentration should 200 ng/mL.
  5. When inducing with IPTG, use 3 µL of stock (0.2 g/mL = 20% w/v) to every 1 mL of LB or other liquid.
  6. When inducing with Arabinose, use "2 µL of stock" (10% w/v L-Arabinose) "to every 1 mL" of LB or other liquid.
  7. When inducing with 3OC6 (HSL), use a 2000 fold dilution of a 10 mg/mL stock solution. We have dissolved in EtOH which is not the best - degrades with time. Keep this cold.
  8. When growing thyA- cells, add 50 µg/mL thymine to your media. Our thyA- cells have a KanR resistant plasmid that caused the mutation. So it is best to always use kanamycin to maintain the thyA- genotype. Thymine stock solutions (4mg/mL) can be autoclaved.
  9. When using theophylline with riboswitch C, make a 40-100 mM stock solution of theophylline in 50 mM NaOH. The final concentration of theophylline should be 2 µM.
