PARIS™ Kit Invitrogen™

The Ambion® PARIS™ system is for the isolation of both RNA and native protein from the same experimental sample. The kit also permits separation of nuclear and cytoplasmic fractions prior to RNA and/or protein isolation. The kit contains sufficient reagents for 50 purifications from1 to 75 mg of tissue or 100 to 107 cells each.

• Fast, simple procedure
• Isolate nuclear and cytoplasmic RNA and protein from cultured cells
• Isolate total RNA and protein from cultured cells or tissues
• No phenol extraction or alcohol precipitation
• Reduces time, cost, and variability between independent experimental samples

Isolation of high-quality RNA is the first step for a variety of gene expression analyses. Very often, complementary studies at the protein level are also required. Usually these analyses are performed using different aliquots of the same experimental sample. However, when working with rare, difficult to obtain, or very small samples, it is sometimes impractical to isolate RNA and native proteins independently. In studies involving large numbers of samples, expensive reagents, or inherent variability (e.g., cell transfection), the addition of independent experimental samples is not only costly and time consuming, but may also lead to inconsistent results. To solve these issues, the Protein And RNA Isolation System (PARIS™ system) has been developed. It allows for the isolation of both RNA and protein from the same experimental sample (see Figure). Using the PARIS™ system, RNA and protein can be isolated simultaneously from whole cell lysates. Alternatively, RNA and protein can be isolated from separate nuclear and cytoplasmic fractions. Tissue or cultured cells are first homogenized in ice-cold Cell Disruption Buffer to prepare a total cell lysate. Since the homogenization is performed quickly on ice and in the presence of detergent, both protein and RNA can be purified directly from this lysate. For RNA isolation, a part of the total cell lysate is immediately mixed with an equal volume of Lysis/Binding Solution. Total RNA is then purified from the mixture using an RNA binding glass fiber filter. After three rapid washing steps, high-quality RNA is eluted in a concentrated form. The entire procedure can be completed in less than 20 minutes. Note: This kit is not recommended for tissues with high levels of ribonucleases, such as pancreas.

Compatible with Most Downstream Applications
The RNA isolated from total, nuclear, or cytoplasmic fractions with the PARIS™ procedure can be used in a variety of downstream applications, including blot hybridization, in vitro translation, cDNA synthesis, and RT-PCR. A DNase I treatment is recommended for RNA that will be used for RT-PCR experiments (see Accessory Products). Protein fractions can be used directly for most common applications, including functional assays, immunoprecipitation, western blotting, or two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (see Figures).

Accessory Products:
TURBO™ DNA-free™ or DNA-free™ DNase Treatment and Removal Reagents (SKU #AM1907 and AM1906, respectively) are ideal to quickly remove trace amounts of DNA from the total and nuclear RNA samples without phenol extraction or alcohol precipitation. The cytoplasmic RNA fraction is virtually free of DNA contamination.

Total Exosome RNA & Protein Isolation Kit Invitrogen™

The Total Exosome RNA and Protein Isolation Kit enables isolation of total RNA and proteins from exosome samples extracted from biological fluids (e.g., by using Total Exosome Isolation (from cell culture media) or Total Exosome Isolation (from serum)).
• Extracts highly pure total RNA (including small RNA fraction) from exosomes
• Recovers protein and RNA from the same sample
• Compatible with all protocols for exosome isolation

The Total Exosome RNA and Protein Isolation Kit is designed for the isolation of both RNA and protein from pre-isolated or enriched exosomes (not supplied). It is suitable for studies of RNA expression (specifically miRNA), processing, or function. The kit allows recovery of both RNA and proteins from the same purified exosome preparation. One portion of the sample is subjected to organic extraction, followed by immobilization of RNA on glass-fiber filters to purify total RNA or enrich for small RNA species. The other portion is then used directly for common protein applications such as Western blotting.

High yields of ultra-pure RNA can be prepared in about 30–60 minutes. The RNA can then be used in a variety of downstream applications, including qRT-PCR, high-throughput sequencing (e.g., using the Ion Torent™ PGM™, Ion Torrent™ Proton™, or SOLiD® sequencing instruments), microarray analysis, solution hybridization assays, and blot hybridization.

For Research Use Only. Not for human or animal therapeutic or diagnostic use.

Isolate DNA from stabilized and freshly collected saliva
The MagMAX Saliva gDNA Isolation Kit isolates gDNA from 200 µL–2 mL of freshly collected saliva or stabilized saliva collected using a commercially available saliva collection device (see figure below). MagMAX Saliva gDNA isolation chemistry is compatible with the Oragene® saliva collection devices from DNA Genotek, the SalivaGard® saliva collection device from Biomatrica, and the GeneFiX™ Saliva DNA Collection Device from IsoHelix.

The MagMAX Saliva gDNA Isolation Kit maximizes gDNA yields by treating samples with an innovative lysis/binding solution to simultaneously lyse cells, denature proteins, and capture gDNA on high-capacity magnetic binding beads. The Saliva gDNA Wash I Solution removes proteins, detergents, and other impurities from the bound nucleic acid. The gDNA is then released from the beads using a low-TE elution solution.

In studies with Saccharomyces cerevisiae, high yields of genomic and plasmid DNA are consistently obtained. DNA purified using this kit is suitable for PCR amplification, bacterial transformations, restriction digestions and hybridization applications.

mirVana™ PARIS™ RNA and Native Protein Purification Kit Invitrogen™

The mirVana™ PARIS™ Kit is for the purification of both native protein and RNA (including small RNA) from the same sample. Each kit contains sufficient reagents and consumables for either 40 isolations of protein and total RNA (including small RNAs), or 20 isolations of protein and separate large and small RNA fractions. Features of this kit:

• Isolate small RNA-containing total RNA and native protein from the same sample
• Start with 100–107 cultured cells or up to 100 mg of many mammalian tissues
• Enrich for small RNA (<200 nt) to increase sensitivity in downstream analyses
• Follow a simple, 30-minute procedure
• Use to correlate mRNA, miRNA or siRNA, and protein levels

How the kit works
The mirVana™ PARIS™ Kit procedure begins with homogenization of samples with a special cell disruption buffer that includes nonionic detergent. Protein remains intact, so a portion of the lysate can be used directly for common protein analysis applications. The remainder of the lysate is used for RNA isolation, using a procedure that combines the advantages of organic and solid-phase extraction, while avoiding the disadvantages of both.

Accessory products
For tissues that have very high levels of ribonucleases, such as pancreas or spleen, the mirVana™ miRNA Isolation Kit is recommended, although it is not designed to recover protein and small RNA from the same sample.
