Yeast RNA Extraction
Unlike eukaryotic cells, yeast and many bacterial strains are protected by cell walls that can be difficult to disrupt. As a first step, effective cell lysis (typically via mechanical disruption or enzymatic pretreatment) is required prior to any RNA isolation procedure.
A range of products developed by the Ambion® RNA experts will help you isolate high yields of pure, intact RNA from bacteria and yeast.
