    5. Transformation:Procedure Overview Day 2 Day 1

    6. What is Transformation? • Uptake of foreign DNA, often a circular plasmid

    7. What is a plasmid? • A circular piece of autonomously replicating DNA • Originally evolved by bacteria • May express antibiotic resistance gene or be modified to express proteins of interest

    8. Bacterial DNA Bacterial cell Plasmid DNA Genomic DNA

    9. The Many Faces of Plasmids Graphic representation Scanning electron micrograph of supercoiled plasmid

    10. Gene Expression • Beta Lactamase • Ampicillin resistance • Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) • Aequorea victoria jellyfish gene • araC regulator protein • Regulates GFP transcription

    11. Bacterial Transformation

    12. Transcriptional Regulation • Lactose operon • Arabinose operon • pGLO plasmid

    15. Methods of Transformation • Electroporation • Electrical shock makes cell membranes permeable to DNA • Calcium Chloride/Heat-Shock • Chemically-competent cells uptake DNA after heat shock

    16. Transformation Procedure • Suspend bacterial colonies in Transformation solution • Add pGLO plasmid DNA • Place tubes on ice • Heat-shock at 42°C and place on ice • Incubate with nutrient broth • Streak plates http://faculty.clintoncc.suny.edu/faculty/michael.gregory/files/

    17. Reasons for Performing Each Transformation Step? • Transformation solution = CaCI2 Positive charge of Ca++ ions shields negative charge of DNA phosphates

    18. Why Perform Each Transformation Step? 2. Incubate on ice slows fluid cell membrane 3. Heat-shock Increases permeability of membranes 4. Nutrient broth incubation Allows beta-lactamase expression

    19. What is Nutrient Broth? • Luria-Bertani (LB) broth • Medium that contains nutrients for bacterial growth and gene expression • Carbohydrates • Amino acids • Nucleotides • Salts • Vitamins

    20. Grow?Glow? • Follow protocol • On which plates will colonies grow? • Which colonies will glow?

    21. Results http://faculty.clintoncc.suny.edu/faculty/michael.gregory/files/

    22. Volume Measurement

    23. When transferring bacteria to or from an agar plate • Organisms are transferred by using a sterile loop and reaching in from the side while keeping the plate covered as much as possible. • This technique minimizes the risk of contamination from above. http://faculty.clintoncc.suny.edu/faculty/michael.gregory/files/

    24. When adding DNA to the transformation reaction • Immerse a sterile loop into the bottle containing plasmid DNA. • When the center of the loop is coated with a soap-like film, transfer it the + DNA microtube http://faculty.clintoncc.suny.edu/faculty/michael.gregory/files/
