Isolation of Genomic DNA from Saliva Using the Perfect gDNA Blood Mini ,,, Kit

Jennifer Halcome, Laura Pollock, and Michele Nelson Hurst
Eppendorf 5 Prime, Inc. Introduction

It is not convenient in all instances to have blood drawn for gDNA extraction. The Eppendorf Perfect gDNA Blood Mini Kit was used to extract gDNA from saliva with only slight modifications to the protocol. The unique patent-pending trapping technology results in gDNA that is less sheared than the gDNA isolated using the common chaotropic bind-wash-and-elute technology. The gDNA also performs well in PCR as the main downstream application as well as in other downstream applications.

Materials

  • Perfect gDNA Blood Mini Kit
Required but not supplied:
  • Ethanol 95100%; pipette tips; Microcentrifuge; Eppendorf Thermo-mixer, water bath, or heat block at 70C; 15 ml centrifuge tubes.
  • 1x PBS (sufficient amounts are supplied in the kit for blood work, but additional amounts may be needed for saliva applications)
Method

Isolation of gDNA:

  1. Place 1 ml of saliva into a 15 ml centrifuge tube.
  2. Add 4 ml of 1x PBS.
  3. Centrifuge at 1,800 x g for 5 minutes
  4. Decant the supernatant. Add 200 l 1x PBS and re-suspend pellet.
  5. Add 20 l of Proteinase K solution into a 1.5 ml microcentrifuge tube. Transfer the re-suspension from step 4 into this same tube.
  6. Add 350 l Solution G1 to the microcentrifuge tube and mix.
  7. Incubate in Thermomixer at 70C, 900 rpm, for 10 minutes. A water bath may be used with in termittent vortexing of samples if a Thermomixer is not available.
  8. Centrifuge the sample for 3 minutes at 12,00016,000 x g.
  9. Add 200 l Solution G2 to the tube. Vortex vigorously for 5 seconds. Place a spin column in a fresh microcentrifuge tube. Transfer the sample to the spin column assembly by pouring or pipetting. Incubate the sample at room temperature for 1 minute.
  10. Centrifuge the sample for 2 minutes at 12,00016,000 x g. Remove the spin column and decant flow-through. Place the spin column back into the same tube.
  11. Add 600 l Diluted Wash Buffer to the spin column. Centrifuge for 1 minute at 12,00016,000 x g. Remove the spin column and decant flow-through. Place the spin column back into the same tube.
  12. Add 400 l Diluted Wash Buffer to the spin column. Centrifuge for 3 minutes at 12,00016,000 x g. Carefully remove the spin column without splashing Wash Buffer onto the bottom of the column. Place the spin column into a fresh microcentrifuge tube.
  13. Observe the filter membrane to make sure it is dry before proceeding. If the filter looks shiny, spin an additional 1 to 2 minutes before placing the spin column into the fresh microcentrifuge tube.
  14. Add 200 l Elution Buffer to the spin column, making sure that the buffer comes into contact with the spin column filter. Incubate the sample at 70C for 3 minutes. Centrifuge for 1 minute at 12,00016,000 x g to elute gDNA. Store purified gDNA at 4C.
Gel Electrophoresis for Yield:
Determination
5% of each sample was run on a 0.6% agarose gel in 1x TBE. The gel was stained in ethidium bromide. Intensity as well as size of the band was observed.

PCR:
gDNA was isolated from the saliva of three individuals (see protocol). From each individual sample, 50 ng of purified gDNA was used as a template in 30 l PCR reactions. Two different sized targets of the human beta-globin gene were amplified. The following Eppendorf PCR reagents were used with the concentrations or amounts specified in parenthesis:

  • Taq DNA Polymerase (0.05 Units/l)
  • 10x Taq DNA Polymerase Buffer (1x)
  • 25 mM MgCl2 (0.5 mM)
  • dNTP Mix (0.2 mM)
Primers (Integrated DNA Technologies) specific to the human beta-globin gene were used for all reactions at a final concentration of 0.3 M.

536 bp target:

5 GCAGCTACACAGCTACCATTCTGC 3
Reverse:
5 GCAGCCTCACCTTCTTTCATGGAGT 3

2 kb target:
Forward:
5 GAAGAGCCAAGGACAGGTAC 3
Reverse:
5 CCTCCAAATCAAGCCTCTAC 3

PCR reactions were performed on the Eppendorf Mastercycler gradient using the following cycling conditions:

536 bp fragment:
94C for 5 minutes; initial denaturation
35 cycles:
94C for 1 minute denaturation
69.6C for 20 seconds annealing
72C for 2 minutes extension
72C for 5 minutes final extension
15C hold

2 kb fragment:
94C for 5 minutes; initial denaturation
35 cycles:
94C for 45 seconds
70C for 20 seconds
72C for 1 minute
72C for 5 minutes fina l extension
15C hold

Results

Average yields obtained from 1 ml of saliva vary from person to person, but are consistent when triplicate samples are processed for one person (see Fig. 1). In general, the yields are slightly less than the yields of 200 l of whole blood, but extremely high yields have also been observed. All samples perform equally well in PCR with no inhibition of amplification (see Fig.2).

The Perfect gDNA Blood Mini Kit provides a versatile method of isolating gDNA from a variety of starting materials including saliva. The isolated DNA analyzed by gel electrophoresis shows consistent yield within triplicate samples from one individual. The DNA also appears to be significantly higher in molecular weight when isolated using the Perfect gDNA Blood Mini Kit in comparison to the competitor. The DNA in saliva can come from many sources including non-human origins such as bacteria and food particles. Success in amplification of the human beta-globin gene shows the presence of sufficient amounts of human gDNA for use in this downstream application. Overall, the Perfect gDNA Blood Mini Kit provides a fast, effective method for purifying gDNA from saliva.
