Principles of DNA isolation, PCR and LAMP

  1. 1. Principles of DNA Isolation/Extraction and PCR Ruby Carbonell Paraguison-Alili, PhD Molecular Biologist College of Veterinary Science and Medicine Central Luzon State University TJCBTG∞
  3. 3. PRINCIPLES OF DNA ISOLATION & PURIFICATION DNA/RNA can be isolated from animal cells, plant cells, bacteria, protozoa or viruses
  4. 4. Breaking the cells •Breaking the cell, layer by layer releases the cellular constituents. •Accomplished by lysis of the tissue or any sample and homogenizing in the extraction buffer.
  5. 5. Components of Extraction/Lysis Buffer • Tris (Tris-hydroxymethyl aminomethane) buffers the pH of the cells at 8.0. • EDTA (Ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid) chelates the metal ions,cofactors for DNases; weakens the cell membrane stability. • Sodium chloride helps in maintaining the osmoticum of the cells. High concentration weakens the membrane integrity.
  6. 6. Components of Extraction/Lysis Buffer • Mercaptoethanol cleaves the disulphide bridges of proteins and helps in denaturation proteins. • Proteinase K – degrade proteins at 56oC • SDS is a detergent, which also denatures the membrane proteins and disrupts the cell membrane. SDS also helps in inhibition of nucleases.
  7. 7. PCI • The use of Phenol Chloroform-Isoamyl alcohol) is to remove the proteins, most lipids, and cellular debris that can cause an impure DNA result.
  8. 8. DNA Precipitation • DNA in the nucleoplasm is neutralized by Potassium acetate. K+ ions bind with negative phosphate backbone of the DNA and shield them. Also, high concentration of NaCl. This favors DNA precipitation from ethanol in cold condition. • DNA precipitate is settled down as a pellet by centrifugation, purified by 70 % ethanol wash, hydrated in TE buffer.
  9. 9. RNA Isolation/Extraction • Take place in the presence of RNase inhibitory agents (typically strong denaturants like guanidine salts-guanidine isothiocyanate (GITC), sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS), or phenol-based compounds (e.g.Trizol) • It is typically prior to and after the isolation when RNA integrity is at highest risk.
  10. 10. DNA and RNA extraction • You may have the option in choosing the procedure in extracting the DNA or RNA: Using the commercial kit or the conventional method.
  11. 11. Things to remember in RNA Extraction • This can be problematic when tissues or cells are hard (e.g., bone, roots), when workflows prevent processing immediately after collection (e.g., transport from a site of collection to another location for processing), or when samples are numerous (making rapid processing difficult).
  12. 12. Things to remember • RNA are easily degraded. • RNAses are mostly ubiquitous, there should be a designated area for RNA work. • RNA area usually uses DNAses and DNA area uses RNAses.. • DEPC – RNAse inhibitor

  14. 14. Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR
  15. 15. • Your definition of PCR… • Developed by Kary Mullis in 1984, leading to the invention of the Thermocycler/Thermal cycler • Thermal cycler is complex heatblock wherein different temperatures are set for in vitro amplification or reproduction of target DNA
  16. 16. PCR Targets The targets in PCR are the sequences of DNA on each end of the region of interest, which can be a complete gene or small sequence. Crucial in primer or DNA marker designing
  17. 17. 3 steps in PCR Amplification • Denaturation • Annealing • Elongation or Extension
  18. 18. Denaturation Denaturation of the DNA is the first step in PCR, in which the DNA strands are separated by heating to 95°C to 97°C.
  19. 19. Denaturation •Heating separates the double stranded DNA ---Denaturation • Slow cooling anneals the two strands ---Renaturation Heat Cool
  20. 20. Annealing •Two primers are supplied to bind to the complementary region •As the DNA reaches the appropriate temp, they attach to the two template strands •Optimal temperature varies based on primer length and melting temperature •Typical temperature from 28 to 65 C
  21. 21. Elongation/Extension  DNA polymerase duplicatesDNA polymerase duplicates DNADNA  Optimal temperature 72COptimal temperature 72C
  22. 22. PCR Requirements and Roles of PCR Reagents • PCR Mix – Taq polymerase • Enzyme that extends growing DNA strand of the PCR target 1-2.5 units – MgCl2 • Provides ions needed for enzyme reaction. Mg is a co-factor of the enzyme .5-2.5mM – dNTP’s (deoxy-nucleotide-tri phosphate) • Nucleotides (Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine, Thymine) building blocks for new DNA strands 20-200µM – Buffer - Maintains optimal pH for enzyme (Tris, KCl) pH 8.3-8.8
  23. 23. Roles of PCR Reagents • Primers 0.1-1.0µM – Anneal to single-stranded DNA template – Provide initiation site for extension of new DNA – Forward primer – Reverse primer • DNA template – In this case, the product of our DNA extraction which is not included in the master mix. ≤ 1 µg or 10 to 100ng is enough
  24. 24. Considerations • Contamination can easily lead to erroneous results – Avoid contaminating with DNA or PCR product… • DNA stocks are separated from PCR reagents • Gloves, tips, pipettors, benches • Proper use of instruments, micropipettors • Carefully measure reagent quantities • Use appropriate cycling conditions
  25. 25. Gel electrophoresis is a widely used technique for the analysis of nucleic acids (Agarose gel electrophoresis) Gel electrophoresis is a procedure that separates molecules on based on size through a gel under the influence of an electrical field. HOW ARE PCR PRODUCTS ANALYZED?

  27. 27.  "LAMP" stands for Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification. This technology was developed by Notomi et al. It is a very sensitive, easy and time efficient method. The LAMP reaction proceeds at a constant temperature using a strand displacement reaction. Applications 1. LAMP is used in rapid diagnosis of viral, bacterial and parasitic diseases. 2. It helps in the identification of genus and species- specific parasites. What is Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP)?
  28. 28. Developed by Eiken Chemical Co., Ltd. (Japan)  Uses 4-6 different primers designed to recognize distinct regions on the target gene. it is expected to amplify the target sequence with high selectivity. Reaction process proceeds at constant temperature (about 60°C- 65°C)  May be combined with a Reverse Transcription step to allow the detection of RNA What is Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP)?
  29. 29. 1. Amplification of DNA takes place at an isothermal condition (63 to 65°C) with greater efficiency. 2. Thermal denaturation of double stranded DNA is not required. 3. LAMP helps in specific amplification as it designs 4 to 6 primers to recognize distinct regions on the target gene. 4. LAMP is cost effective as it does not require sophisticated equipment. 5. This technology can be used for the amplification of RNA templates in presence of reverse transcriptase. 6. LAMP assay takes less time for amplification and detection. Advantages
