18.104.22.168 Rapid Isolation Micro Method for LPS (20)
1. Centrifuge a bacterial suspension (108 colony-forming units/mL in 2
mL PBS) in a 15-mL tube at 10,000Ã—g for 5â€‰min. Wash the pelletonce in
PBS (pH 7.2) containing 0.15â€‰mM CaCl2 and 0.5â€‰mM MgCl2. Resuspend
washed cells in 300ÂµL of water and transfer to a 1-dram vial
containing a stir bar.
2. Add an equal volume of hot (65â€“70Â°C) 90% phenol. Stir the mixture
vigorously at 65â€“70Â° for 15â€‰min. Chill suspension on ice, transfer to
a 1.5-mL polypropylene tube, and centrifuge at 8500Ã—g for 15â€‰min.
3. Transfer supernate to a 15-mL conical centrifuge tube. Re-extract
phenol phase with 300â€‰ÂµL of distilled water. Pool the aqueous phases.
4. Add sodium acetate to 0.5 M final concentration. Add 10 volume of
95% ethanol and place sample at â€“20Â°C overnight in order to
precipitate the LPS. Centrifuge precipitate at 2000Ã—g at 4â€‰C for 10
min. Discard supernatant.

In days before molecular biology kits, all electroporation experiments
I did used PEG precipitation after alkaline lysis. Those preps are still
very dirty! Dirtier than a regular minipreps and much dirtier than
anion-exchange purified DNA (e.g., MaxiPrep).
It wasn't a huge effect but then we never optimized anything there.
I'd even expect a very steep *decline* in efficiency above certain
threshold of histones concentration. That is because they will very
effectively shield DNA charges making it much less electrophoretically
mobile. And electrotransfection is membrane electroporation followed
by nucleic acid electrophoresis.
