Product Description

Phenol, Saturated Solution, Ph 4.5

Application Notes

Phenol Saturated Solution of pH 4.5-5.5 is suitable for denaturing DNA and purifying RNA. It is also used for the purification of RNA from genomic DNA. Although phenol alone will purify RNA in these extractions, it is preferable to include some chloroform. In the complete absence of chloroform, messenger RNA can collect with the DNA at the interphase. The ratio of phenol to chloroform can vary from no chloroform to a 1:1 mixture, depending on the individual tissue and the character of the RNA being purified. For many purposes, a 5:1 ratio of phenol:chloroform is a recommended starting point.
