Salmon Sperm Deoxyribonucleic acid (SS-DNA) may be used to study physicochemical interactions of DNA with binding agents, intercalation agents, modification agents, detection agents and compaction agents. Salmon sperm DNA is used to study the loading capacity of magnetic mesoporous silica nanoparticles (M-MSNs) and binding capacities of polymer nanolayer architectures. SS-DNA may be used as substrate for development of DNA detection assays.
Deoxyribonucleic acid sodium salt has been used in a study to evaluate the cytotoxicity of enzyme inhibitors and absorption enhancers in Caco-2 cells for oral delivery of salmon calcitonin. Deoxyribonucleic acid sodium salt has also been used in a study to develop a simple method for extracting DNA from Cryptosporidium oocysts.
Deoxyribonucleic acid sodium salt from salmon testes has been used in basal medium for the anaerobic growth of several Bacillus mojavensis strains It has been also used as a component of immunoprecipitation (IP) buffer for the Microplate-Based Matrix Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP).

  3. What is the molecular weight of Product D1626, Deoxyribonucleic acid sodium salt from salmon testes (DNA)?

    The molecular weight for product D1626 has not been determined.  In general, the reference J.A.C.S., vol. 118, 10679 (1996), reports the molecular weight to be 1.3 million or around 2,000 base pairs.

  4. What is the solubility of Product D1626, Deoxyribonucleic acid sodium salt from salmon testes (DNA)?

    Sigma tests solubility in water at 2 mg/mL.  To prevent shearing of the large genomic DNA, this product should be dissolved in water (1 mg/mL) with no sonication or stirring. Gentle inversion overnight at 0-4 °C is recommended to completely solubilize the DNA. The presence of 1 mM EDTA is recommended to prevent nucleases from degrading the DNA.

  5. What is the solution stability of Product D1626, Deoxyribonucleic acid sodium salt from salmon testes (DNA)?

    Solutions of DNA have been stored successfully for several months at 4°C, in 10 mM Tris, pH 7.5 - 8.0, with 1 mM EDTA and without a bacteriostatic agent.
