  2. 2. PRINCIPLE<br />Plasmid for routine molecular cloning method is often purified by one of the following methods :-<br />Alkaline lysis method<br />Boiling method<br />Lithium chloride base <br /> The purity of plasmid isolated by these above methods depends on how efficiently a method can separate plasmid DNA from genomic DNA. Most of these plasmid purification methods allow the preferential recovery of circular plasmid DNA over linear chromosomal DNA.<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br />2<br />HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />
  3. 3. ALKALINE LYSIS method<br />Alkaline lysis method is one of the most commonly used method for lysis bacterial cells prior to plasmid purification. It has four basic steps :-<br /> 1. Resuspension : Harvested bacterial cells are resuspended by using solution I contains<br /> EDTA (ethylene diaminetetra-acetic acid) and Tris-CL.<br /> EDTA – chelates the magnesium and calcium ions <br /> Tris-CL – maintains pH. <br />2 . LYSIS : Cells are lysis with alkaline solution II contains NaOH and SDS (sodium dodecyl sulfate).<br />NaOH -- denatures the chromosomal and plasmid DNAs as well as proteins.<br /> SDS -- solubilizes the phospholipids and protein components of the cell membrane, leading to lysis <br /> and release of the cell membrane.<br />3. NEUTRALIZATION : The lysate is neutralized by addition of solution III of acidic potassium acetate. The high salt<br /> concentration causes potassium dodecyl sulfate (KDS) to precipitate and denatured proteins, <br /> chromosomal DNA and cellular debris are co-precipitated in insoluble.<br />.<br /> 4. CLEARING OF LYSATES : Precipitated debris is removed by either high speed centrifugation or filtration, producing cleared lysates<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br />3<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />

  14. 14. Gel electrophoresis<br />Agarose gel electrophoresis is a widely used method that separates molecules based upon charge, size and shape. The purpose of the gel will be either to visualize the DNA,to quantify it or to isolate a particular band. Agarose forms a porous lattice in the buffer solution and the DNA must slip through the holes in the lattice in order to move toward the positive pole.<br />DNA is visualized in the gel by addition of ethidium bromide , binds strongly to DNA by intercalating between the bases and is fluorescent meaning that it absorbs invisible UV light and transmits the energy as visible orange light.<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br />14<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />

Mix the content and heat it in a microwave for 30 seconds.<br />Mix the content and allow the Agarose to cool to 50°C and pour it in a plate that was sealed on either sides using a tape. After the gel is solidified, remove the tape and use it for electrophoresis of DNA samples.<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br />15<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />

Up to 3% can be used for separating very tiny fragments but a <br /> vertical polyacrylamide gel is more appropriate in this case.<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br />16<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />

This means a lower voltage and more time, but a better product.<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />17<br />

  22. 22. Preparing the Casting Tray<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />22<br />Seal the edges of the casting tray and put in the combs. Place the casting tray on a level surface. None of the gel combs should be touching the surface of the casting tray.<br />
  23. 23. POURING THE GEL IN TRAY<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />23<br />Allow the agarose solution to cool slightly (~60°C) and then carefully pour the melted agarose solution into the casting tray. Avoid air bubbles.<br />
  24. 24. Each of the gel combs should be submerged in the melted agarose solution. <br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />24<br />
  25. 25. Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />25<br />When cooled, the agarose polymerizes, forming a flexible gel. It should appear lighter in color when completely cooled (30-45 minutes). Carefully remove the combs and tape. <br />

  28. 28. Sample Preparation<br />6X Loading Buffer: <br />  Bromophenol Blue (for color)<br />  Glycerol (for weight)<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />28<br />Mix the samples of DNA with the 6X sample loading buffer (w/ tracking dye). This allows the samples to be seen when loading onto the gel, and increases the density of the samples, causing them to sink into the gel wells.<br />
  29. 29. Loading the Gel<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />29<br />Carefully place the pipette tip over a well and gently expel the sample. The sample should sink into the well. Be careful not to puncture the gel with the pipette tip.<br />
  30. 30. Running the Gel<br />Sunday, April 04, 2010<br /> HIMANSHU CHAUDHRY<br />30<br />Place the cover on the electrophoresis chamber, connecting the electrical leads. Connect the electrical leads to the power supply. Be sure the leads are attached correctly - DNA migrates toward the anode (red). When the power is turned on, bubbles should form on the electrodes in the electrophoresis chamber.<br />
