The use of glass powder suspension for the extraction of RNA or DNA was studied to simplify the procedures of polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Using this procedure, proviral DNA of human T-lymphotropic virus type-1 (HTLV-1) in the blood of an asymptomatic virus carrier and viral RNA of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the blood of an AIDS patient were easily detected by PCR employing glass powder. The use of glass powder is a simple and highly efficient procedure for the extraction of DNA… CONTINUE READING
