General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has Inherently Safer Chemistry, compared to the standard use of phenol and chloroform to perform DNA extractions.
The GenElute Plant Genomic DNA Miniprep Kit provides a simple and convenient way to isolate pure DNA from a variety of plant species. The GenElute kit combines the advantages of a silica-based system with a microspin format and eliminates the need for expensive resins, RNase treatment, and hazardous organic compounds such as phenol and chloroform.


The purified genomic DNA is ready for immediate use in sensitive downstream applications such as:
  • PCR
  • restriction endonuclease digestion
  • cloning
  • Southern blots

Features and Benefits

  • Starting material: Up to 100 mg of plant tissue
  • Expected yield: Up to 20 μg
  • Elution volume: 100 - 200 μl
  • Time required: < 40 min
  • RNase treatment required: No


Several micrograms of DNA can be obtained from up to 100 mg of fresh tissue or 10 mg of freeze-dried material in less than an hour. Plant tissue is disrupted by grinding in liquid nitrogen and the DNA is released with detergent and chaotrope. Proteins, polysaccharides, and cell debris are eliminated with a 10 minute precipitation procedure followed by centrifugation through a filtration column, included in the kit. The genomic DNA is purified further by a silica bind-wash-elute procedure in microcentrifuge spin columns. The purified DNA is greater than 20 kb in length.

A previous study in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) identified two candidate genes controlling a quantitative trait locus (QTL) for high-molecular-weight glutenin subunit (HMW-GS) GluBx. These candidates were Glu-B1-1, the structural gene coding for Glu1Bx, and the B homoeologous gene coding...
