These past few days I have been working on compiling the ICP-AES data from multiple runs. Below is one set of the graphs that compares the results from each run. Because I am investigating the competitive binding between hexamminecobalt(III) (which has a charge of +3) and magnesium (which has a charge of +2) to DNA at varying levels of osmotic stress, the graphs below demonstrate how much of the DNA charge is neutralized by each respective species at differing PEG values. It is interesting to note all runs seem to have the same trend, and hopefully with even more data the numerical values for the trend will become more solidified. Tomorrow, I plan to run another set of samples through the ICP-AES and compare its results as well.
