Application

Magnesium acetate is used in molecular biology applications such as batch in vitro transcription of RNA and the crystallization of transcription factor:DNA complexes and proteins via the sitting-drop vapor-diffusion method.
Magnesium acetate solution has been used:
  • to supplement Midkin fused to the biotin ligase BioID2 (MK-BioID2) conditioned medium for in-tube biotinylation assay
  • as a component of lysis buffer and amplified RNA (aRNA) fragmentation buffer to perform aRNA fragmentation
  • as a component of lysis buffer and DamID buffer for sequencing zygote samples

Bacteria downregulate their ribosomal activity through dimerization of 70S ribosomes, yielding inactive 100S complexes. In Escherichia coli, dimerization is mediated by the hibernation promotion factor (HPF) and ribosome modulation factor. Here we report the cryo-electron microscopy study on 100S ribosomes
