SURG510 Gene Transfection and Expression Course Page

Description: This course will prepare graduate students for carrying out projects requiring molecular biology techniques. Topics to be covered include preparation of competent bacteria; bacterial transformation with gene of interest; growing transformed bacteria in a large scale; isolation of plasmid DNA containing gene of interest; isolation of DNA insert by electroclution method to be used as a probe; gene transfection of human mammalian cells such as dermal fibroblasts; preparation of total RNA from transfected and untransfected cells; separation of RNA by gel electrophoresis; RNA blotting and hybridization with probe of interest; DNA labelling; analysis of corresponding protein as a gene product in transfected cells using a variety of techniques including ELISA, Western blot analysis, immunohistochemistry or receptor assay. It will provide students with an understanding of the basic science on which these techniques will be based. This course is intended for Surgical Residents and Fellows working in experimental surgery. Prerequisite: consent of Department.
