Finding a suitable DNA isolation system to satisfy your downstream application needs is vital for the successful completion of experiments.
This DNA purification guide addresses general information on the basics of DNA extraction, plasmid preparation and DNA quantitation, as well as how optimized purification techniques can help increase your productivity, so you spend less time purifying DNA and more time developing experiments and analyzing data.
There are five basic steps of DNA extraction that are consistent across all the possible DNA purification chemistries: 1 disruption of the cellular structure to create a lysate, 2 separation of the soluble DNA from cell debris and other insoluble material, 3 binding the DNA of interest to a purification matrix, 4 washing proteins and other contaminants away from the matrix and 5 elution of the DNA.
The goal of lysis is to rapidly and completely disrupt cells in a sample to release nucleic acid into the lysate. There are four general techniques for lysing materials: physical methods, enzymatic methods, chemical methods and combinations of the three. Physical methods typically involve some type of sample grinding or crushing to disrupt the cell walls or tough tissue.
A common method of physical disruption is freezing and grinding samples with a mortar and pestle under liquid nitrogen to provide a powdered material that is then exposed to chemical or enzymatic lysis conditions. Grinders can be simple manual devices or automated, capable of disruption of multiple well plates.
Physical methods are often used with more structured input materials, such as tissues or plants. Other devices use bead beating or shaking in the presence of metallic or ceramic beads to disrupt cells or tissues, or sonication to disrupt tissues and lyse cells.
Chemical methods can be used alone with easy-to-lyse materials, such as tissue culture cells or in combination with other methods. Cellular disruption is accomplished with a variety of agents that disrupt cell membranes and denatures proteins.
Chemicals commonly used include detergents e. Enzymatic methods are often used with more structured starting materials in combination with other methods with tissues, plant materials, bacteria and yeast. The enzymes utilized help to disrupt tissues and tough cell walls. Depending on the starting material, typical enzymatic treatments can include: lysozyme, zymolase and liticase, proteinase K, collagenase and lipase, among others.
Enzymatic treatments can be amenable to high throughput processing, but may have a higher per sample cost compared to other disruption methods. In many protocols, a combination of chemical disruption and another is often used since chemical disruption of cells rapidly inactivates proteins, including nucleases. Depending on the starting material, cellular lysates may need to have cellular debris removed prior to nucleic acid purification to reduce the carryover of unwanted materials proteins, lipids and saccharides from cellular structures into the purification reaction, which can clog membranes or interfere with downstream applications.
Usually clearing is accomplished by centrifugation, filtration or bead-based methods. Centrifugation can require more hands-on time, but it is able to address large amounts of debris. Filtering can be a rapid method, but samples with a large amount of debris can clog the filter. Bead-based clearing, like the method used with Promega particle-based plasmid prep kits, can be used in automated protocols, but can be overwhelmed with biomass.
Once a cleared lysate is generated, the DNA can then be purified by many different chemistries, such as silica, ion exchange, cellulose or precipitation-based methods. Regardless of the method used to create a cleared lysate, the DNA of interest can be isolated using a variety of different methods. Promega offers genomic DNA isolation systems based on sample lysis by detergents, and purification by binding to matrices silica, cellulose and ion exchange , which is where interest has primarily been focused in recent years.
Each of these chemistries can influence the efficiency and purity of the isolation, and each have a characteristic binding capacity. Bind capacity is an indication of how much nucleic acid an isolation chemistry can bind before it reaches the capacity of the system and no longer isolates more of that nucleic acid.
We can build design features into these chemistries by manipulating the binding conditions to enrich for different categories of nucleic acid e. This type of chemistry does not rely on a binding matrix, but rather on alcohol precipitation.
Following the creation of lysate, the cell debris and proteins are precipitated using a high-concentration salt solution. The high concentration of salt causes the proteins to fall out of solution, and then centrifugation separates the soluble nucleic acid from the cell debris and precipitated protein 1. The DNA is then precipitated by adding isopropanol to the high-concentration salt solution. Additional washing of the pellet with ethanol removes the remaining salt and enhances evaporation.
Lastly, the DNA pellet is resuspended in an aqueous buffer like Tris-EDTA or nuclease-free water and, once dissolved, is ready for use in downstream applications. The technology for these genomic DNA purification systems is based on binding of the DNA to silica under high-salt conditions 2—4.
The key to isolating any nucleic acid with silica is the presence of a chaotropic salt like guanidine hydrochloride. Chaotropic salts present in high quantities are able to disrupt cells, deactivate nucleases and allow nucleic acid to bind to silica.
These washes remove contaminating proteins, lipopolysaccharides and small RNAs to increase purity while keeping the DNA bound to the silica membrane column.
Once the washes are finished, the genomic DNA is eluted under low-salt conditions using either nuclease-free water or TE buffer. While both methods generally represent a good balance of yield and purity, the silica membrane column format is more convenient. Particles can also be completely resuspended during the wash steps of a purification protocol, thus enhancing the removal of contaminants. More recently, Promega has commercialized DNA isolation methods that use a cellulose-based matrix.
Nucleic acid binds to cellulose in the presence of high salt and alcohols. Generally speaking, the bind capacity of cellulose-based methods is very high.
Conditions can be adjusted to preferentially bind different species and sizes of nucleic acid. As a result of the combination of binding capacity and relatively small elution volume, we can get high concentration eluates for nucleic acids.
Ion exchange chemistry is based on the interaction that occurs between positively-charged particles and the negatively-charged phosphates that are present in DNA. The DNA binds under low salt conditions, and contaminating proteins and RNA can then be washed away with higher salt solutions. The DNA is eluted under high salt conditions, and then recovered by ethanol precipitation. Wash buffers generally contain alcohols and can be used to remove proteins, salts and other contaminants from the sample or the upstream binding buffers.
Alcohols additionally help associate nucleic acid with the matrix. DNA is soluble in low-ionic-strength solution such as TE buffer or nuclease-free water. When such an aqueous buffer is applied to a silica membrane, the DNA is released from the silica, and the eluate is collected. When selecting your elution buffer, it is important to consider the requirements of your desired downstream processes.
Plasmid DNA Purification
Opentrons is making automation accessible for any lab, starting with affordable pipetting robots for biologists. With easy-to-use hardware and an open software platform, Opentrons automates manual lab work and empowers collaborative research for hundreds of life scientists. Opentrons is used by scientists at 90 percent of the top 10 largest pharmaceutical companies and 90 percent of the top 50 biology research universities. To isolate plasmid DNA, you crack your cells open and perform a miniprep, trying hard to avoid contaminating genomic DNA. For genomic DNA, you crack your cells open in a different way and try to isolate as much of the contents as possible. In this article, we will look at plasmid and genomic DNA extraction, and the ways in which these techniques differ.

Metrics details. Research in plant molecular biology involves DNA purification on a daily basis. Although different commercial kits enable convenient extraction of high-quality DNA from E. Furthermore, a simple method for the isolation of binary plasmid from Agrobacterium tumefaciens cells with satisfactory yield is lacking. Here we describe an easy protocol using homemade silicon dioxide matrix and seven simple solutions for DNA extraction from E.
