General description

SYBR® Green I is a proprietary asymmetrical cyanine dye, which is used to detect nucleic acids. It consists of a N-alkylated benzothiazolium or benzoxazolium ring system, that is joined by a monomethine bridge to a pyridinium or quinolinium ring system. SYBR Green I binds to the minor groove of dsDNA and is excited at a wavelength of 480 nm. It has a peak fluorescence emission of 520 nm.

Application

SYBR® Green I nucleic acid gel stain has been used for:
  • the quantification of dsDNA
  • to stain DNA in polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • for comet assay technique
  • to assess spermatozoon membrane integrity
  • for visual inspection of DNA amplified by loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP)
  • as a fluorescent dye in flow cytometry
  • real-time quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) for staining reverse-transcribed cDNA

Features and Benefits

  • An ultrasensitive stain for post-electrophoresis staining of dsDNA in agarose or polyacrylamide gels
  • It can also detect ssDNA and RNA in denaturing agarose/formaldehyde and polyacrylamide/urea gels without any pre-washing steps
  • It is less mutagenic than ethidium bromide in Ames tests
  • It provides 50-100 times greater detection sensitivity than ethidium bromide for oligonucleotides
  • Useful for many applications with a limited amount of DNA
  • The binding of SYBR® Green I to DNA does not inhibit the activity of many common restriction endonucleases, including Hind III and EcoR I
  • Removal of this stain in-gel digestion and ligation techniques is not needed
  • SYBR Green I is a greener alternative product to ethidium bromide for staining

Storage and Stability

Store the product at –20 °C. The diluted Staining Solution may be stored, protected from light, either at 2–8 °C for several weeks or at room temperature for 3–4 days.

Articles

Whole transcriptome amplification (WTA) is a method often used to amplify small quantities of reverse transcribed RNA, or degraded RNA for direct use in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) workflows. Discover our SeqPlex™-I WTA library preparation kit for producing libraries that are ready for direct input onto Illumina® NGS flow cells.

Protocols

The SeqPlex DNA Amplification Kit for whole genome amplification (WGA) is designed to facilitate next-generation sequencing (NGS) from extremely small quantities or from degraded/highly fragmented DNA

Protocol using hot start dNTPs. Method includes modified nucleoside triphosphates that block DNA polymerase nucleotide incorporation during hot start PCR to increase specificity. Compatible with a variety of PCR reagents.

WTA2, a Whole Transcriptome Amplification (WTA) method, allows for representative amplification of nanogram quantities of total RNA in less than 4 hours without 3-bias

The SeqPlex RNA Amplification kit provides a method for amplification of total RNA or isolated mRNA prior to entry into the workflows of the commonly used deep sequencing platforms.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
