This high intracellular content material was also visible as a black rown coloration of BL21-dMagR cell biomass and its supernatant soon after cell disruption (Figure 2b). Quantification by SDS-PAGE densitometry (non-MagR impurities at about 14 kDa have been excluded determined by a respective adverse control) yielded an approximate intracellular, soluble dMagR concentration of 54 mg g-1 dry cell weight (DCW) or five.12 pg cell-1 (1 cell 9.5 10-13 g DCW ) equivalent to 2.20 106 dMagR molecules cell-1. On the other hand, putting a strong neodymium magnet (50 50 12.five mm) close to the BL21-dMagR biomass suspension at room temperature resulted in no observable movement of cells towards the magnet. We further analyzed magnetization behavior with lyophilized cells by superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometry. Depending on the vague know-how about MagR and its applicability in cells to interact with magnetic fields at ambient situations [8,9], we hypothesized that measurements at low temperatures of only 3.six, 20 and 120 K 1.
