I have a possibly trivial, but definetly nagging, question about the "standard"
alkali maxi-/mini-prep for preparing plasmid DNA.
Could/would someone please provide an explanation, reference(s), etc. of why
the pH (4.5-6.2) and formulation (Na-, K-, NH4- acetate; acetic acid, formic
acid, etc.) of neutralization "Solution #3" vary from one version to the next?
I don't recall any indepth discussion of the function for the various
components other than to form insoluble precipitates of
Thanks for the consultation.
