Mitochondria are essential double-membrane bound organelles that support aerobic respiration and most of the cellular ATP production in all nucleated mammalian cells. To date, hundreds of pathogenic mitochondrial DNA mutations have been identified to result in disease phenotypes such as cancer, ataxia, and diabetes. As a result, isolation of high quality mitochondrial DNA from mammalian cells and tissues in sufficient quantities is important for many basic research and clinical applications. BioVision’s Mitochondrial DNA Isolation Kit facilitates purification of quality mitochondrial DNA from mammalian cultured cells or tissue. This kit utilizes a density separation step to isolate mitochondria from the rest of the cellular organelles, followed by an enzymatic reaction to release DNA from the mitochondria. Upon release, mitochondrial DNA is further purified from nuclear DNA contamination and adsorbed onto a silica spin-column under chaotropic conditions, eliminating the use of toxic organic compounds or solvents. Mitochondrial DNA purified by this kit is suitable for various downstream molecular biology applications such as PCR, cloning, DNA hybridization, Southern Blotting, sequencing, genotyping, enzymatic analysis, and more.
