Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 76, 3590–9. Growth of bacteria on 3-nitropropionic acid as a sole source of carbon, nitrogen, and energy. 2010

Nishino, S.F., Shin, K.A., Payne, R.B. and Spain, J.C.

Notes: The authors identified a bacterial strain that can use the toxin 3-nitropropionic acid (3NPA) as its sole carbon and nitrogen sources and cloned the genes that encode the enzymes responsible for the initial steps in the 3NPA degradation pathway. The Pseudomonas library used to clone these genes was created using genomic DNA isolated using the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System. Closely related genes were amplified from other bacterial species for phylogenetic analysis. PCRs were performed using the GoTaq® Hot Start Polymerase. (4164)

Am. J. Pathol. 171, 1153-1167. Dissecting the impact of chemotherapy on the human hair follicle: a pragmatic in vitro assay for studying the pathogenesis and potential management of hair follicle dystrophy. 2007

Bodó, E., Tobin, D.J., Kamenisch, Y., Bíró, T., Berneburg, M., Funk, W. and Paus, R.

Notes: To study how chemotherapy affects hair follicles (HF), the researchers microdissected and cultured human anagen VI scalp follicles and treated the cells with 4-Hydroperoxycyclophosphamide (4-HC) at similar concentrations to those received during therapy. After incubation for 24 hours with 30µmol/L of 4-HC, the HFs were homogenized and genomic DNA was purified using the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System. To determine if the treatment induced the mitochondrial common DNA deletion, the isolated DNA was subjected to real-time PCR. Further examination of gene expression was performed by isolating total RNA from two HF samples, reverse transcribing 3µg of the RNA using 15U of AMV Reverse Transcriptase and 0.025 µg/µl random primers, and amplifying seven human genes in a TaqMan® Assay.

Genome Res. 17, 1286-1295. Domain-wide regulation of gene expression in the human genome. 2007

Gierman, H.J., Indemans, M.H., Koster, J., Goetze, S., Seppen, J., Geerts, D., van Driel, R. and Versteeg, R.

Notes: The authors explored the possibility of a domain-based level of gene expression regulation for chromosomes by integrating the green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter in 90 different locations in cultured human cells. This integration was accomplished by infecting human embryonic kidney cells (HEK293) with a lentiviral construct carrying the GFP gene under the control of the ubiquitously expressed human phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK), sorting GFP-positive cells by FACS and selecting clones for expansion. Genomic DNA was isolated from the various clones using the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System and analyzed by PCR or restriction digested for Southern blotting. (3743)

Notes: To examine how exposure to leptin in utero affects hepatic gene expression and epigenetic status in adulthood, pregnant Wistar rats were fed a standard diet or 30% undernutrition. The three-day-old pups were exposed to saline or leptin for 10 days, weaned and either fed a standard or high-fat diet. On day 170, the rats were sacrificed and tissues snap frozen. Five micrograms of genomic DNA was isolated from rat liver using the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System. Then 25ng of the purified DNA was digested with methylation-sensitive restriction enzymes, and the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARα) fragments were amplified by real-time PCR.

J. Clin. Microbiol. 44, 2750–2759. Real-time quantitative broad-range PCR assay for detection of the 16S rRNA gene followed by sequencing for species identification. 2006

Zucol, F., Ammann, R.A., Berger, C., Aebi, C., Altwegg, M., Niggli, F.K., and Nadal, D.

Notes: A panel of 11 Gram-negative and 11 Gram-positive bacterial species was used to develop a real-time PCR detection method. Initially DNA was purified from 1ml of various dilutions of bacteria resuspended in a saline solution using either the QIAamp DNA blood mini kit or the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System. The results suggested that the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System extraction protocol was superior in disrupting the bacterial cell wall (especially of Gram-positive bacteria), to allow release of bacterial DNA. Using DNA purified with the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System, detection of S. aureus and E. coli at concentrations as low as 101 CFU per PCR was achieved. The Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System purification protocol provided in eNotes online ( was used with the following modifications: The bacterial pellet was resuspended in 400µl of enzymatic lysis solution (47mM EDTA, 25mg/ml lysozyme, 20µg/ml lysostaphin) and incubated for 2 hours at 37°C. Next, 19.2mg/ml proteinase K was added (final concentration 0.4mg/ml), and the mixture was incubated for 1 hour at 55°C. Finally, the Nuclei Lysis Solution and RNase Solution were added, mixed and incubated for 10 minutes at 80°C. For real-time PCR analysis, 2µl of genomic DNA was used. (3676)
