Paper Abstract

Traditional anion exchange purification of nucleic acids requires the elution of the DNA or RNA in a salt solution, necessitating the precipitation or desalting of the nucleic acid prior to many molecular biology applications. A pH dependent anion exchange purification method is described which allows the purification of nucleic acids at one pH, followed by the elution of the nucleic acid in a low salt buffer at a second, higher pH. The benefits of this method include the avoidance of alcohol washes and the drying steps required for alcohol removal, as well as the benefits of anion exchange purification without the need for desalting of the purified DNA or RNA.
