DNA Extraction From Cell-Free Samples

Biological fluid samples, such as plasma, serum, and urine, contain cell-free DNA (cfDNA). cfDNA is used in pathogen detection, and cfDNA targets are being used as biomarkers in oncology research. Isolation of cfDNA is challenging because of its low abundance in typical samples. In pathogen detection, virus particles are also typically in low abundance and therefore are challenging to capture. Thus, large volumes of biological fluids (which can be difficult to handle) are required to obtain sufficient amounts of cfDNA for analysis. We have developed scalable products capable of handling these large volumes while efficiently recovering cfDNA from a broad range of sample types in several format options.

DNA was isolated from 0.2 g stool samples (in triplicate) obtained from three donors (D1–D3) with the PureLink Microbiome DNA Purification Kit (PL) and a leading competitor kit (MB). (A) Concentration of DNA as measured by a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop spectrophotometer and Invitrogen Qubit fluorometer, and DNA purity (A260/A230, A260/A280). Elution volume: 100 µL for both kits. The PureLink kit recovered 2–5 times more DNA than the competitor kit. (B) Analysis of DNA on a 0.8% agarose gel. M: 1 kb ladder. The PureLink kit recovered a substantially larger amount of DNA, of high integrity, than the competitor kit. (C) qPCR analysis of three bacterial targets—Bifidobacterium, E. coli, and Bacteroides/Prevotella—with corresponding Applied Biosystems TaqMan assays. The samples produced with the PureLink kit had lower threshold cycles (Ct) than those produced with the competitor kit, indicating better PCR amplification. Both a higher amount of DNA template and lower levels of inhibitors contribute to the efficiency of PCR amplification.

Sequence-Specific RNA/DNA Purification

Invitrogen streptavidin-coupled Dynabeads are a robust and versatile tool that can be used to capture specific RNA or DNA sequences and then pull them directly out of solution. These monosized superparamagnetic Dynabeads provide an efficient and solid-phase alternative to nitrocellulose and provide you with an unmatched level of product quality and data consistency. Excellent near–liquid phase reaction kinetics allow for extremely fast protocols. The inherent ease of magnetic handling means that downstream manipulations and buffer changes are as simple as concentrating the bead-bound target at the tube-wall with a magnet and then discarding the supernatant. These beads are compatible with an extremely broad range of sample types including most bodily fluids, crude lysates of plant, animal and microbial origin as well as purified total RNA or DNA. Since these Dynabeads will only interact with specifically targeted RNA or DNA molecules, upstream purification of total RNA or DNA is almost always an unnecessary step.

Single Stranded DNA Graph

The direct capture procedure involves the immobilization of double-stranded PCR products onto the beads. These are easily converted to single-stranded bead-bound templates which are then used to capture specific RNA or DNA molecules directly from solution. 

An alternative indirect capture approach will offer faster reaction kinetics in some cases. This indirect capture procedure allows the target sequence to be captured prior to being immobilized the magnetic beads. First, a biotinylated capture-sequence (single-stranded DNA) is incubated with the sample and allowed to hybridize to the targeted RNA or DNA molecules in solution. Streptavidin-coated Dynabeads are then added to the mixture and the hybridized sequences are immobilized onto the Dynabeads via the streptavidin-biotin bond.

The 1 µm Dynabeads MyOne Streptavidin C1 present a very high surface area per mg of beads, enabling high enrichment of low abundance RNA or DNA. When the goal is to capture nucleic acid from more viscous samples such as cerebrospinal fluid, the larger 2.8 µm sized Dynabeads M-270 Streptavidin are recommended.  These Dynabeads (MyOne Streptavidin C1 and M-270 Streptavidin) are optimally designed to have slightly negatively charged surfaces which ensure negligible non-specific binding of non-target nucleic acid sequences.

Examples of applications include; isolation of RNA/DNA infectious agent (1,2,3,4), subtractive hybridization (5,6,7), cDNA selection and enrichment, detection and isolation of mutated sequences (8,9,10), isolation of cell specific transcripts and mRNA differential display.

Biological fluid samples, such as plasma, serum, and urine, contain cell-free DNA (cfDNA). cfDNA is used in pathogen detection, and cfDNA targets are being used as biomarkers in oncology research. Isolation of cfDNA is challenging because of its low abundance in typical samples. In pathogen detection, virus particles are also typically in low abundance and therefore are challenging to capture.
