Endotoxin Removal solution

Remove lipopolysaccharides (LPS) from plasmid DNA preparations

Pricing and availability is not currently available.

Quality Level


Endotoxin Removal solution has been used to remove lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from Baker′s yeast RNA.

Biochem/physiol Actions

The reagent relies on the micellar properties of Triton X-114 to remove endotoxins from solution. When warmed above 20 °C, micelles aggregate into a separate phase that sequesters amphiphilic solutes, including lipopolysaccharides. The hydrophilic DNA remains in the aqueous phase.

Endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide, LPS) is commonly found as a contaminant in plasmid DNA preparations. We demonstrate here that the quantities of LPS typically contaminating DNA preparations can generate a toxicity to primary cells (primary human skin fibroblasts, primary human melanoma cells)...
