Enzymatic Cell Lysis and Protoplast Preparation

Enzymatic lysis and protoplast preparation is very specific to cell wall and membrane morphology. Each cell type requires optimization of the type and concentration of enzymes used, as well as other components, such as detergents, used in the digestion buffer. Sigma offers several preformulated kits for cell lysis and extraction and purification of DNA, RNA and proteins.
