This is not a duplicate of all the other 260/280 ratio questions, I already know that DNA is supposed to be 1.8 and RNA is supposed to be 2.0. However, this might be more appropriate for chemistry, ...
I am using a RNA which is in vitro transcripted before I started my project. It turned out it is not prepared properly and has DNA contamination. Instead of perform the in vitro transcription again, ...
I am working with RNA samples, and I'm trying to be very careful about RNAse contamination. I have some questions about bleach, though. Some people say that a solution of bleach is enough to destroy ...
From the RNAseZap MSDS, it is an SDS at some unknown concentration, maybe with some NaOH? Some other links suggest there is some NaOH as well. The Ambion site states that RNAseZap destroys RNAse ...
If I extract RNA from a (leaf tissue) sample using a one-step phenol:chloroform extraction, how long can those samples be stored at -80°C? And how many times can I defrost and refreeze them before ...
I recently extracted RNA from developing plant leaves for the first time, as part of a very long and intensive experiment. The samples were extremely precious because of the amount of effort that went ...
