by Abnova  

Megaprep plasmid DNA extraction kit is used when the starting E. coli culture volume is 500 ml~2.5 L of LB broth and the expected DNA yield is 1.5~2.5 mg. Other extraction and purification plasmid DNA Kits are available from varying manufacturers, named by size of bacterial culture, includes gigaprep, midiprep, and miniprep.

  • Cell Nuclear Protein Extraction

    Nuclear protein fractionation is proposed as a method to be carried out according to the solubility of proteins in buffers of increasing ionic strength. This protocol indicates the procedure for the preparation of nuclear extracts. First, the cells are collected. Then, make cell membrane fragile using a pestle in hypotonic buffer. After collection of the cytoplasmic fraction, the nuclei are lysed and the nuclear proteins are solubilized in the lysis buffer.

  • DNA Extraction by Phenol/Chloroform

    This method relies on phase separation by centrifugation of a mix of the aqueous sample and a solution containing phenol and chloroform, resulting in an upper aqueous phase and a lower organic phase (mainly chloroform). DNA is present in the aqueous phase and can be recovered by precipitation with isopropanol or ethanol.

  • DNA Extraction from Mouse Tail (Manual)

    DNA extraction is a routine procedure to collect DNA for subsequent molecular analysis. This video shows you how to extract DNA from mouse tails. There are three basic steps: (i) break cells by lysis buffer, (ii) digest protein and remove contamination by proteinase, (iii) precipitating the DNA.

  • Gel Extraction

    Gel extraction is a technique used to isolate a desired fragment of intact DNA from an agarose gel following agarose gel electrophoresis. Three basic steps are involved: slicing the bands of interest on UV light exposure, isolating the DNA from those bands, and removing the accompanying salts and stain.

  • mRNA Extraction

    Due to the low proportion of mRNA (only 1~5% of the total RNA), reducing the amount of rRNA and tRNA in a total RNA preparation increases the relative amount of mRNA. mRNA enrichment is essential for construction of cDNA libraries and other applications where intact mRNA is highly desirable. This video shows how to use affinity resin to isolate mRNA.
