Overview

Protocol for DNase treatment of total RNA. This uses a DNase inactivating reagent and thus avoids the DNase heat inactivation step that makes me nervous.

Materials

  • THAWED 10X DNase Buffer
  • X μL reagent 2
    • component A (reagent 2 is made up of multiple components)
    • component B
  • equipment 1
  • equipment 2

Procedure

  1. In order to DNase 20ug of RNA in a 100ul reaction, mix the following:
  • 10μL 10X DNase buffer
  • 78μL dH20
  • 2μL DNase
  • 10μL RNA(1ug/μL)
  1. Incubate at 37° C for 20-30 min.
  2. Add 0.1 volume resuspended DNase Inactivation Reagent.
  3. Incubate 2 min at RT mixing every 30s.
  4. Centrifuge at 10,000xg for 1.5 min.
  5. Transfer solution to a new tube avoiding pelleted Inactivation Reagent.

Notes

  1. List troubleshooting tips here.
  2. You can also link to FAQs/tips provided by other sources such as the manufacturer or other websites.
  3. Anecdotal observations that might be of use to others can also be posted here.
