Purification of M30109

10 ml of overnight growth was spin down and supernatant discarded.

  1. add 500μL of P1 resuspension buffer. resuspend using the pipette until all cell pellets are liquified
  2. labelled 2 eppendorf tubes
  3. Transfer 250μL of the resuspended cells into each eppendorf tubes.
  4. For each tubes, add 250μL of P2 lysis buffer.
  5. Wait for 3-4 min for lysis to occur.
  6. For each tubes, add 350μL of N3 neutralisation buffer to stop the lysis.
  7. Invert the tubes 10 times until the percipitation occurs.
  8. Centriguge for 10 min at 13000 rpm
  9. Decant the supernatant in each of two correspondingy labelled QIAgen quick columns, ensure no percipitate enters the column
  10. Centrifuge 1 min at 13000 rpm to bind the DNA to the column. Discard the flow-through.
  11. Add 500μL of PB wash buffer into each columns.
  12. Centrifuge for 1 min at 13000 rmp. Discard the flow-through.
  13. Add 750μL of PE final wash with ethanol into each column.
  14. Centrifuge for 1 min at 13000 rmp. Discard the flow-through.
  15. IMPORTANT! To remove any ethanol residues. Centrifuge for 1 additional min at 13000 rmp. Discard the flow-through.
  16. place each column into new labelled eppendorf tubes.
  17. Add 30μL of DNase free water to the centre of the column.
  18. Wait for 1 min.
  19. To elute, centrifuge for 1 min at 13000 rmp.

Place the sample back on ice or store at -20°C

  1. Weigh 0.65 g of agarose powder then transfer to flask
  2. Add 65 ml of 1x TAE buffer
  3. Mix and heat until no speckles remain
  4. Place on bench until cool
  5. Add 2μL of Ethidium Bromide. Swirl to mix
  6. Pour into prepare casting tray with comb and ensure no bubbles.
  7. Wait for 30-40 min for gel to set

For 65ml 2& agarose gel. Follow recipe above but use double amount of agarose powder (1.3 g)
