NONH for all modes of transport
Functionally, WGA1 and WGA2 kits are identical. The only difference between the two kits is that WGA2 is supplied with the WGA polymerase.
The kit works best for fragments 400 bp and larger. When starting with fragmented DNA, we recommend: (1) skipping the fragmentation heat step, although the buffer should be added, and (2) increasing the PCR cycles from 14 to 20.
Using this kit to amplify DNA from a single cell is not recommended. We recommend using the GenomePlex Single Cell WGA Kit (WGA4) for such application. WGA4 was developed for use with single cells and includes an optimized cell lysis protocol which has been incorporated into the fragmentation step.
When starting with single stranded starting materials, we recommend (1) skipping the fragmentation heat step, although the buffer should be added and (2) increasing the PCR cycles from 14 to 20. Note that if the ssDNA is actually cDNA from polyadenylated RNA, the kit will likely not give good representation of the input material, as the poly(T) ends constitute a large, non-random fraction.
WGA polymerase is compatible with TA cloning with the following alteration to the PCR step: Be sure to include a 7 to 30 minute extension at 72°C after the last cycle to ensure that all PCR products are full length and 3´ adenylated.
