University of Tokyo Genomic DNA extraction

  1. Wash each embryo with DDW and put each embryo into 1.5 ml tube.
  2. Freeze embryos at -80C
  3. Add 200 ul of TNES-6U buffer (10mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5; 125mM Na Cl; 10mM EDTA; 1% SDS; 6M Urea) and homogenize with a plastic pestle.
  4. Add 5 ul of protenase K solution (20 mg/ml) and incubate at 37 C over night.
  5. Add 300 ul of phenol/chloroform solution (TE saturated phenol : chloroform : Isoamyl Alcohol = 25 : 24 : 1) and mix well for 10 minutes by inversion.
  6. Centrifuge at 10,000 rpm at room temperature.
  7. Transfer aqueous phase to a new tube and add 500 ul of diethyl ether, mix by inversion.
  8. Centrifuge at 5,000 rpm for 2 minutes and remove ether and lipid phase.
  9. Add 20ul of 5M Na Cl and 500ul of 100% cold Ethanol (-20 C) to the aqueous phase and incubate at -80C for 1 hour.
  10. Centrifuge at 15,000 rpm for 15 minutes at 4C.
  11. Remove supernatant and add 1000ul of cold 70% Ethanol (-20 C).
  12. Centrifuge at 15,000rpm for 10 minutes at 4C and remove supernatant.
  13. After drying add 250 ul of TE solution.
