Part Characteristics in Cell-Free Chassis
|Parameter||Value and Description|
|Calibration||A conversion factor of 79.429 from Au to concentraion in nM|
|Half-life||33 hours in the cell-free chassis, with a degradation constant of 0.0210 (in hours)|
The fluorescence of purified GFPmut3B was calibrated in the cell-free chassis. The derived calilbration curveallows the determination of the concentration of GFPmut3b in the cell-free chassis. Detailed protocolsfor generating the calibration curve are available. Other calibration curves for are also available on the results page.
The degradation of GFPmut3B in the cell-free chassis was also characterized. Purified GFPmut3B was allowed to degrade in the cell-free chassis and the fluorescence was measured over time. Detailed protocolsand resultsare attached.
From the semi-log plot, the degradation constant (in minutes) was derived to be 0.0003501, which is equivalent to GFPmut3b having a half-life of 33 hours in the cell-free chassis.
