For this reason the DNA is denatured into single strands by incubation with sodium hydroxide solution (NaOH). If the DNA fragments are larger than 15kb, the gel can be treated with acid such as dilute HCl prior to blotting. The DNA is depurinated by the acid and breaks down into smaller pieces which allows more efficient transfer from the gel to the membrane. The Southern Blot Method begins with the DNA fragments being transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane. This is a sheet of special blotting paper.
The effects are red bright skin. In lab, we learned to distinguish two types of bacteria using the gram stain, gram positive and gram negative. Since S. Aureus has a thick peptidoglycan cell wall with teichoic acid, it stains gram positive. Further tests will indicate the bacteria, including the presence of catalase, sheep blood hemolysis, mannitol fermentation, halotolerance, and coagulase, which S. Aureus is positive for all. 3.)
Investigable Question My investigable question for the LJOC experiment was how does the pH level of the water in the jars affect the population size of protozoans? pH level, is a scale that measures the concentration of hydrogen ions. On the pH scale, somewhat surprisingly, 7 is neutral—not 0, and anything higher than 7 is basic, and anything lower than 7 is acidic. Background When we (Maleek and I) setup the experiment, which involved 3 jars, we weighed some grass and put some of the grass into each of the jars. We then began to experiment combining water with vinegar (which we knew had an acidic pH around 3), and later with baking powder (which we knew had a basic pH around 9), to find the mixtures for a pH of 5 and of 9.
The result has shown by using Agarose Gel Electrophoresis (AGE). There are two possibilities outcome for digestion of pUC19 and SOD gene which is positive and negative result. Positive result should only have a single band formation at specific length while negative result will show few bands on varies length and contamination by other components. All groups have shown one band formation for digestion of SOD gene at 550bp in length while only group 11 has successfully obtained a single band formation at 2686bp for digestion of pUC19 by restriction
Figure 20 and 21 casting tray Figure 22 gel box After 1 hr., take out the gel from gel box carefully, place it into the machine, so that the DNA gel electrophoresis can be visualize under UV light. Figure 23 gel documentation system, used to visualize gel electrophoresis with UV light NMR spectroscopy First of all, 3 samples were prepared, peptide in SDS, DPC, and buffer. The sample temperature was maintained at 298 K, prepared by supervisor and H(hydrogen) in SDS and DPC micelle was replaced with D(deuterium) , so that in proton NMR, peptide won’t be interfered by H in micelle. amount of peptide in sds and dpc In the case of NMR of peptide alone, sample was prepared with 90% of H2O which is 540μL and 10% of D2O which is 60μL, so 600μL of solution was used to dilute 1.5mg of peptide. Put 600μL of sample into NMR Sample Tubes, put the sample tube into NMR sample holder, and then run the test, the chemical shift of proton in peptide can be monitored.
This catalyzed the reaction which contributed to the oxidized form of naphthol which in turn formed purple precipitate which helped in determining the location of the human serum albumin. Therefore, absence of purple bands on the nitrocellulose membrane (Figure 3) proved that protein was not fully transferred to the nitrocellulose membrane. Lack of transfer of protein to the nitrocellulose membrane maybe due to the inaccurate rolling of the rod to collect the proteins or maybe the washings were done too many
The hydroquinone metabolite purified from B. methylotrophicus MHC10 was evaluated for its antibacterial activity against a panel of several Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial pathogens. The zone of inhibition was used to evaluate the antagonistic activity of the metabolite. The standard antibiotics Ampicillin and Gentamycin were used as the positive control. Both antibiotics showed high antagonistic activity against all test pathogens. But in the case of P. aeruginosa, the hydroquinone treatment showed little high zone of inhibition than ampicillin Lee et al.,  studied the antimicrobial activities of the purified prodigiosin and cycloprodigiosin against B. subtilis KCTC 1914, E. coli KCTC 1924, Salmonella typhimurium KCTC 1926, S.
An example is sulfomethoxazole [SMX] of the sulfonamide family: some bacteria utilize para-amino benzoic acid[PABA] a start-up product in producing folic acid –containing intermediates for DNA replication, using the enzyme dihydroptorate synthase to produce dihydroptorate. SMX blocks this enzyme, but these days, study has shown some bacteria that totally for-go this PABA pathway, these bacteria are now resistant to SMX because it really has nothing to work on.  Enzymatic destruction of antibiotics: some microbes develop antibiotics resistance by producing enzyme to destroy the antibiotics. An example is the beta-lactam antibiotics, namely penicillins, amoxicillin. These antibiotics have this part of their chemistry, the beta-lactam rings, some organisms especially the gram-negatives carry in their periplasm enzymes called beta-lactamses, to destroy any drug with this beta-lactam rings.
Cycloheximide applies its impact by interfering with the translocation steps in protein synthesize (development of two tRNA atoms and mRNA in connection to the ribosome), hence blocking translational prolongation. Cycloheximide is generally utilized as a part of biomedical research to repress protein synthesize in eukaryotic cells except for S.aureus and E.coli contemplated in vitro (i.e. outside of microorganism). It is cheap and works quickly. Actually after the interaction of 72 hours, both growth of E.coli and S.aureus will be inhibited by Cycloheximide antibiotic.
There are some kinds of characteristic such as coccus, bacillus, and spiral. The example of coccus could be such as Staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus and bacteria types-Gram stained. We can observe that these bacteria have purple colour because these bacteria having peptidoglycan to their cell wall. In Gram staining, the outer lipid-based membrane of gram-negative bacteria is removed by an alcohol solution. The alcohol also decolorizes the exposed peptidoglycan layer by dissolving away the previously applied crystal violet.
