High efficiency method to obtain supercoiled DNA with a commercial plasmid purification kit.


Supercoiled state corresponds to the active form for plasmid applications. The relaxed circular form of plasmids is often inactive or poorly active. To obtain significant amounts of almost fully supercoiled DNA, we modified the standard protocol of a commercially available Qiagen plasmid purification kit. Our changes led to isolation of almost 100% of the… (More)
