Description General description Phage DNA is isolated from infected E. coli, passed through a series of enzymatic steps before final phenol-chloroform extraction. This methylated lambda DNA is not completely digested by Bcl I, Cla I, Mbo I, Mbo II, Taq I or Xba I whereas non-methylated lambda DNA(product number D3654) is only partially cleaved. Specificity Unique restriction sites: Apa I,Nae I, Nar I, Nhe I, PaeR7 I, SnaB I, Xba I and Xho I. Methylated lambda is partially cleaved by Bcl I, Cla I, Mbo I, Mbo II, Taq I and Xba I. Application Lambda Phage DNA, Methylated from Escherichia coli host strain W3110 has been used: • in magnetic tweezers measurements • in the preparation of 35S-labeled DNA • in the preparation of coupled standards (DNA + RNA) Lambda Phage DNA, Methylated from Escherichia coli host strain W3110 is suitable for use as a substrate for restriction enzymes. It was used to study the attractive forces between condensed DNA double helix by combining single-molecule magnetic tweezers and osmotic stress. 35S-labeled Lambda Phage DNA, Methylated from Escherichia coli host strain W3110 was also used to standardize a method of measuring dissolved DNA in seawater. The lambda phage has an icosahedral head and a long tail terminating in a single fiber. At both ends of the 5′ termini are complementary 12-nucleotide single strand sequences that contribute to the cohesive ends (cos region) of the DNA. The tail of the phage latches on the host outer membrane receptor and injects phage DNA into the cell. The phage converts the E. coli to a lysogenic state in which the phage functions are repressed and the phage genome may remain dormant (prophage) for a long time. This property is seen in bacteriophages that carry CII and CIII genes that are responsible for CI expression. Bacteriophages with CI mutation in the CI gene are able to maintain a lysogenic state at defined temperatures. Infecting E. coli strain W3110 with lambda C1857 strain creates E. coli lysogen cultures. The phage is released from E. coli cell pellets by lysing with a high salt buffer, pH 8.0. The crude mixture is passed through a series of enzymatic steps, multiple cesium gradients, and phage DNA is dialyzed against 1 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.0, and 1 mM magnesium chloride. The DNA is finally extracted by phenol-chloroform solution. Unit Definition One O.D. (A260) is approximately 50 μg of DNA Physical form DNA is supplied in a solution of 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), with 1mM EDTA.
