Treatment of cells

  1. Grow cells 3-4 days at 28 C on agar-medium (100 ml).
  2. Harvest by suspension in 1 M sorbitol and filtration.
  3. Suspend 8 x 108 conidia/ml in 1 M sorbitol, 20 mg/ml lysing enzymes (Sigma L-1412); mix gently for 2 h at 28 C.
  4. Centrifuge suspension for 5 min. at 500 x g at 4 C.
  5. Wash twice wi th 1 M ice-cold sorbitol and one time with 1 M ice-cold sorbitol / 1% PEG.
  6. Resuspend the protoplasts in 0.5 ml ice-cold electroporation buffer (2 x 108 protoplasts/ml), chill on ice for 10 minutes.

Electroporation of cells

  1. Add 4 l plasmid DNA (0.5 mg/ml) to 400 l of protoplasts. Homogenize by gently mixing with pipette several times. Transfer mixture into a pre-chilled cuvette.
  2. Wipe moisture from the cuvette and insert the cuvette into the device.
  3. Electroporation:

    Mode Eukaryotes Voltage (V) 750 V Time constant (T) 250 s No. of pulses (n) 3
  4. Incubation for 10 minutes on ice.
  5. Incubation for 1 h at 28 C in 1 ml outgrowth medium with shaking.
  6. Mix cells with 10 ml Vogels minimal medium, 1 M sorbitol, 2% sorbose, 2% sucrose, 0.7% LMP agarose; plate on selection plates. Incubate 3 days at 28 C.

Expected result:

Transformation efficiency up to 100 transformants / g of DNA.
