* '''Team Fungal Laccases and Team Shuttle Vector:'''
 
-
** Bad day for us. We realized that our primers we used for amplification of the laccase genes for cloning in the shuttle vector don't have overhanging ends which were needed for an optimal activity of the enzyme ''Aar''I. So we had to order new primers with some bases prior to the recognition sites. But after there is little time left until wiki freeze and the new primers need some time until they are here we started a last trial for cloning this 'wrong' PCR products in the shuttle vector. The idea was to phosphorylate and ligate the ends of the PCR product from tvel5 together. Then the problem with the missing bases at the end would be solved and ''Aar''I can digest the end of the PCR product. We digested the shuttle vector with ''Aar''I and dephosphorylated it. After ligation we transformed the approaches in ''E. coli'' KRX cells.

-
* '''Team Cellulose Binding Domain:'''
 
-
** Designed a lot of primers to cope with the expression problem. E.g. inserting a long S3N10-Linker via blunt-end-cloning between the CBD and the GFP, also primers to get rid of the His-tag on the GFP and a last set to easily change the order of CBD and GFP (via assembly but with no linker in between).

*** Duration of incubation for CBD to bind to Avicel:  about 30 minutes
 
-
*** Washing and Lysis-buffer: 50mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0)
 
-
*** If needed: Elution with 80% ethylen-glycol (EG) or 1/5 Pellet to 4/5 EG (100%) of the overall volume.

-
*** Settings: fermenter: Bioengineering NFL22 (7&nbsp;L), final volume: 6&nbsp;L, LB-medium with 60&nbsp;µg/mL chloramphenicol and 300&nbsp;µg/mL ampicillin added, 37&nbsp;°C, stirrer increased 2&nbsp;% if the pO<sub>2</sub> got below 30&nbsp;%, airflow: 5&nbsp;NL/m.

*** Harvest and centrifugation of cultivation & fermentations 09/14. Store pellet at 4&nbsp;°C.
 
-
* '''Team Activity Test:'''
 
-
** Today we got the chance to work with Team Immobilization again. The samples they gave us were supernatants from different immobilization approaches. The team tested diverse bead concentrations with even higher amounts of beads then before. Check their labjournal for further information about the output of the measurements. Besides the supernatants we also received beads with immobilized laccases TEVL0 and [http://partsregistry.org/Part:BBa_K863005 ECOL]. So finally we got to use the filter plates that helped us to carry out the activity measurements and then stop the reaction at a precice point of time via centrifugation. Team Immobilization gave us enough samples for 7 measurements after different reactions times. We chose to stop the reaction after 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 minutes, respectively, to check the behavior of the immobilized laccase in relation to the time. Check their lab journal for the very exciting results!
