    1. 1. hPGK1 eGFP-Neo26 8 3 PolyA Ins PolyA mCherry Jay Gantz, Laflamme Lab Meeting April 14, 2011
    2. 2. What I told you on March 2nd...EF1a-CRE lenti plasmid is done, need to make virus, titer and test CK7-CRE seemed to work but IHC needed Cloning: problems with restriction sites (dammethylation), several lucky breaks, one last step 2
    3. 3. Let’s start with the cloning7 4 5+6 8 3 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Thought there was one last step: 2nd insulator 3
    4. 4. Let’s start with the cloning7 4 5+6 8 3 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Thought there was one last step: 2nd insulator However: cut site between pAs doesn’t cut. Uh oh. 3
    5. 5. Let’s start with the cloning7 4 5+6 8 3 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Thought there was one last step: 2nd insulator However: cut site between pAs doesn’t cut. Uh oh. No other sites. No obvious options. 3
    6. 6. Let’s start with the cloning7 4 5+6 8 3 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Thought there was one last step: 2nd insulator However: cut site between pAs doesn’t cut. Uh oh. No other sites. No obvious options. Tried sequencing between PolyAs: nada 3

    10. 10. Solution: A Patch!7 4 5+6 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Patch Patch advantages: •Perfect sequence (we ordered the oligo) •Engineered multiple new and unique restriction sites around all components 4
    11. 11. Solution: A Patch!7 4 5+6 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Patch Patch advantages: •Perfect sequence (we ordered the oligo) •Engineered multiple new and unique restriction sites around all componentsPatch disadvantage: Time (ordered mid-March, any day now...) 4

    13. 13. Meanwhile... tested to look for GFP7 4 5+6 8 3 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Idea: check if right half is functional in HEKs Transfected (along with a + control) 5

    15. 15. Why no green?7 4 5+6 8 3 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Reason 1: low quality DNA prep (P/C made a huge difference for Nathan) 6
    16. 16. Why no green?7 4 5+6 8 3 2 1 PolyA PolyA 2A CK7Ins eGFP-Neo hPGK Ins PuroR mCherry Reason 1: low quality DNA prep (P/C made a huge difference for Nathan) Reason 2: mutation? but we have ok sequence 6
