Available Materials

VII. Genomic DNA


M. leprae genomic DNA from three different isolates (NHDP-63, Br 4923, and Thai-53)

Quantities available:

2 or 5 micrograms

Production system:

Cell lipids are extracted from whole M. leprae bacilli by chloroform/methanol (2:1) extraction in an equal volume of Tris-EDTA buffer. Delipidated cells are exposed to SDS and proteinase K treatment. Genomic DNA is isolated from contaminating proteins using organic extraction. To remove polysaccharide contaminants, DNA is precipitated with isopropanol and stored at -70oC as a dry pellet.


Quality control for this reagent includes agarose gel electrophoresis, restriction enzyme digestibility, and spectrophotometric analysis.
