Rapid procedure for detection and isolation of large and small plasmids.

Journal of Bacteriology
C I Kado, S T Liu


Procedures are described for the detection and isolation of plasmids of various sizes (2.6 to 350 megadaltons) that are harbored in species of Agrobacterium, Rhizobium, Escherichia, Salmonella, Erwinia, Pseudomonas, and Xanthomonas. The method utilized the molecular characteristics of covalently closed circular deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that is released from cells under conditions that denature chromosomal DNA by using alkaline sodium dodecyl sulfate (pH 12.6) at elevated temperatures. Proteins and cell debris were removed by extraction with phenol-chloroform. Under these conditions chromosomal DNA concentrations were reduced or eliminated. The clarified extract was used directly for electrophoretic analysis. These procedures also permitted the selective isolation of plasmid DNA that can be used directly in nick translation, restriction endonuclease analysis, transformation, and DNA cloning experiments.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
