Genomic DNA

BRC Mouse Genomic DNA

General Information

Genomic DNA is prepared in the Gene Engineering Division from mouse strains maintained in the RIKEN BRC Experimental Animal Division. High molecular weight DNA is prepared by phenol-chloroform extraction. The DNA is suitable for amplification by PCR. The concentration and purity of DNA samples are determined spectrophotometrically following electrophoresis. DNA concentrations generally range from 50 to 100 ng/μl. (The concentrations of individual samples are supplied with a data sheet.) The DNAs are stored in TE buffer (10 mM TRIS pH7.5, 1mM EDTA) at -30oC.

Attention International Transfer - "Veterinary Permission" or "Permit to Import Quarantine Material" may be required for shipment of the biological materials. Please follow guide lines in your country.

Reconstitution of DNA

  • In the case you received plastic vials contains precipitated DNA with ethanol.
  • A precipitant might stick to the lid or wall during transportation.
  • Before opening the tube, please spin down a minute or two at 5,000 g (~7,000 rpm, table top microfuge).
  • Please remove ethanol with pipet (DO NOT tooch precipitate!)
  • Immediately after removal of ethanol resuspend the DNA in an appropriate amount of TE buffer (10 mM Tris-Cl, pH 7.5, 1 mM EDTA), and dissolve the DNA pellet by gently tapping with fingers (DO NOT shake vigorously! A little amount of ethanol won't affect to many applications).
  • If the DNA is difficult to solve, leave the vial at 4 degreeC overnight to allow the DNA to dissolve.
  • Once reconstituted in TE buffer, the DNA should be stored at -30 degreeC.
