Protocol

1 Sample preparation
First step of sample preparation differs if you are using (A)culture cells OR (B)Tissue specimen. 
Buffers are highlighted in blue to prevent mistakes.

A) If you are using cell-line:

  • Collect at most 6 x 10^6 of cultured cell-line.
  • Add 600 µL of C Extraction Buffer (For cells)
  • Lyse cells by pipetting

B) If you are using Tissue samples:

  • Take a at most 20 mg of fresh or frozen Tissue sample in a 1.5mL tube
  • Add 600 µL of PT Extraction Buffer (For Tissue)
  • Grind the Tissue specimen with a pestle



Following procedures are same for both Cell-line and Tissue samples.

  • Vortex the samples for more than 30 secs



2 PT binding
  • Centrifuge sample at 13,000 x g, 10 mins, 4C
  • To a new tube, transfer supernatant (remember volume for next step)
  • Add PT binding buffer, same volume as removed supernatant in previous step
  • Mix by inverting tube



3 Column loading
Load the whole sample by repeating [loading -> centrifuge -> discard flow through] twice.
  • Add 600 µL of the sample mixture to the column
  • Centrifuge sample at 13,000 x g, 1 min, 4C
  • Discard flow through
  • Add rest of sample mixture to the column
  • Centrifuge sample at 13,000 x g, 1 min, 4C
  • Discard flow through



4 Wash and DNaseI treatment
  • Add 500 µL of PT wash buffer1 to the column
  • Centrifuge sample at 13,000 x g, 1 min, 4C
  • Discard flow through
  • Add 100 µL of DNaseI to the column
  • Incubate for 15 minute at room temprature
  • Add 300 µL of PT wash buffer1 to the column
  • Centrifuge sample at 13,000 x g, 1 min, 4C
  • Discard flow through
  • Add 600 µL of PT wash buffer2 to the column
  • Centrifuge sample at 13,000 x g, 2 min, 4C
  • Discard flow through



5 Elution
  • Place the column on a new, labled 1.5 mL tube for collecting eluate
  • Add 50 µL of ddH2O to center of the membrane of the column
  • Incubate on bench for 3 mins
  • Centrifuge sample at 13,000 x g, 1 min, 4C



6 Quantification
  • Measure concentration of RNA sample

Random 6 mers(50 μM) 100 μl -20°C
RNase free dH2O 1 ml -20°C




Protocol

1 Reaction preparation
  • Mix the following reagents in one tube
Reagent Volume for 1 reaction (µL) Volume for 10 reactions (µL) Note
Oligo dT Primer(50 μM) 1 10
dNTP Mixture(10 mM each) 1 10
RNA Template ~8 50 Total RNA:<5 μg, polyA+ RNA:<1 μg
RNase Free dH2O up to 10 30
Total 10 100
  • Incubate at 65˚C for 5 mins
  • Transfer tube to ice immediately

! IMPORTANT STEP ! By doing this, the RNA template degenerates and the reverse transcription efficiency increases.



2 Reverse transcription
  • Add the following reaction mix, and make the total volume 20 µL.
Reagent Volume Note
Reaction mix from previous step 10 μL
5×PrimeScript II Buffer 4 μL
RNase Inhibitor(40 U/μl) 0.5 μL(20 U)
PrimeScript II RTase(200 U/μl) 1 μL(200 U)
RNase Free dH2O up to 20 μL
  • Mix gently
  • Immediately proceed to the following reaction
Temprature Time Note
30˚C 10 min Only when using random 6mer primers
45˚C 30-60 min
75˚C 15 min Deactivation. Paramater for long transcrpits just in case.
4˚C Forever (Immediately put on ice.)


  • Dilute reaction to 50 μl with 30 μl H2O for PCR.
  • The cDNA product should be stored at -20°C.
  • For downsteam PCR amplification, the volume of cDNA product should not exceed 1/10 of the PCR reaction volume.
