Product description
2.1 The basic principle
The plant samples are homogenized by mechanical treatment. Then the DNA can
be extracted with Lysis Buffers PL1 or PL2 containing chaotropic salts, denaturing
agents, and detergents. Crude lysates should be cleared by centrifugation and/or
filtration using the NucleoSpin® Filters provided with the kits in order to remove
polysaccharides, contaminations, and residual cellular debris. The clear flow-through
is mixed with Binding Buffer PC to create conditions for optimal binding of DNA to the
silica membrane. After loading this mixture onto the spin column, contaminants are
washed away using Wash Buffers PW1 and PW2. The genomic DNA can finally be
eluted with low salt Elution Buffer PE (5 mM Tris/HCl, pH 8.5) or nuclease-free water
and is ready-to-use for subsequent reactions.
2.2 Kit specifications
•
NucleoSpin® Plant II kits are designed for the isolation of genomic DNA from
plant tissue using two optimized lysis buffer systems based on the established
CTAB and SDS methods.
•
NucleoSpin® Filters are included for conveniently clearing the crude lysates.
•
RNase A is included to remove RNA and to allow photometric quantification of
pure genomic DNA.
•
The optimized Binding Buffer PC and the chaotropic Wash Buffer PW1
completely remove proteins, RNA, metabolites, and other PCR inhibitors.
•
The eluted DNA is ready-to-use for subsequent reactions like PCR, restriction
analysis, Southern Blot etc.

2.3 Storage of plant samples
Plant samples can be stored in ethanol, lyophilized, or frozen. Fresh material can be
kept at 4 °C for one day but should be frozen at - 20 °C for longer storage.
2.4 Homogenization of plant samples
As plant tissue is very robust, the lysis procedure is most effective with wellhomogenized, powdered samples. Suitable methods include any type of commercial
homogenizers (rotor-stator homogenizer) or bead mills using steel or glass beads.
However, we recommend grinding with a mortar and pestle in the presence of liquid
nitrogen to obtain optimal yields.
After homogenization and treatment of the sample with lysis buffer, the crude lysate can
be cleared easily either with NucleoSpin® Filters or by centrifugation.
Methods to homogenize samples
8
•
Grinding with mortar and pestle in the presence of liquid nitrogen: Freeze plant
material in liquid nitrogen and do not let the sample thaw at any time during
homogenization. Precool mortar and pestle using liquid nitrogen. Grind frozen
sample thoroughly to a fine powder and refill mortar occasionally with liquid
nitrogen to keep the sample frozen. Use a precooled spatula to transfer the
sample in precooled tubes. Make sure no liquid nitrogen is transferred or all
nitrogen has evaporated before closing the tube.
•
VA steel beads (diameter: 7 mm, sample available on request): Put 4 – 5 beads
and plant material into a 15 mL plastic tube (Falcon), chill the tube in liquid
nitrogen and vortex for about 30 seconds (e.g., with a Multi Pulse Vortexer,
Schütt Labortechnik GmbH, www.schuett-labortechnik.de). Repeat the chilling
and vortexing procedure until the entire plant material is ground to a fine powder.
Chill the tube once more and remove the beads by rolling them out gently or
using a magnet. Keep the material frozen throughout the whole homogenization
procedure. Do not add nitrogen to the tube since this leads to sticking and loss
of plant material attached to the beads.
•
Rotor-stator homogenizers are only useful to disrupt soft plants in the presence
of lysis buffer. Keep homogenizer submerged at all times to reduce foaming.

2.5 Lysis of plant samples
Increasing the amount of starting material
The standard protocols of NucleoSpin® Plant II / Midi / Maxi kits allow processing of
10 – 1500 mg of plant material. This usually yields 1 – 300 μg of high quality DNA.
However, the amount of DNA that can be expected per mg of sample depends on
the size and ploidy of the genome. For example 100 mg fresh wheat with a hexaploid
genome (1.7 x 1010 bp) contains 30 μg DNA, whereas the same amount of Arabidopsis
with a smaller diploid genome (1.9 x 108 bp) only yields 3 μg DNA.
Thus, it might be advantageous to process even more than the recommended sample
mass (up to 5-fold) to obtain a reasonable DNA yield. However, to ensure a complete
lysis, all lysis buffer volumes of protocol step 2 have to be increased proportionally and
multiple loading steps are necessary. Additional lysis buffers (PL1, PL2, PL3, RNase)
have to be purchased separately (see ordering information).
Choosing the optimal lysis buffer system
Plants are very heterogeneous and contain varying amounts of polyphenols, acidic
components, or polysaccharides which can lead to suboptimal DNA extraction or
performance in downstream applications. Therefore, we offer two different lysis buffers
for optimal processing, high yields, and an excellent DNA quality with most common
plant species.
The standard protocol uses Lysis Buffer PL1, which is based on the established CTAB
procedure. Additionally, the SDS based Lysis Buffer PL2 is provided which requires
subsequent protein precipitation by potassium acetate (Precipitation Buffer PL3).
For some plant species Lysis Buffers PL1 and PL2 can be used with similar results.
However, for most plant material the lysis efficiency is different due to the negative
charge of SDS and the positive charge of CTAB.
Table 2 gives an overview about customer data on different plant species
and the corresponding buffer system that has been tested successfully using
NucleoSpin® Plant II. Important! For a large variety of plant species both lysis
buffers allow good results.
Use the table only for a rough orientation and guideline which buffer system has already
been tested. In order to find optimal lysis conditions when using a certain plant sample
for the first time, it is recommended to do side-by-side preparations of one batch of
homogeneously ground material with both lysis buffers.

A two-fold elution generally yields more DNA than just one elution with the same total
buffer volume. This is most important for small buffer volumes. However, large volumes
or eluting two times results in a lower DNA concentration.
The standard elution procedure is already optimized to yield 80 – 90 % by eluting twofold at elevated temperatures. However, if even higher yields, a higher concentration,
or maximum speed is required, the elution procedure can be adapted:

Attention: Additional reagents and equipment necessary!
•
Ethanol (96 – 100 %)
•
Micro pistill
•
•
1
Chloroform
Siliconized glass beads or sea sand
Homogenize sample
Wash 50 – 200 mg mycelium (fresh weight) or material from a fruiting body
of macro fungi in ethanol. Mycelium can be obtained from a liquid culture or
scraped off (with or without agar) from the surface of a solid medium.
Cover sample completely with ethanol and mix carefully. Short washing in
ethanol is sufficient in most cases, although incubation overnight sometimes
increases DNA yield. (Long-term storage in ethanol is also possible).
Remove ethanol by pipetting and squeezing the mycelium.
2 Cell lysis
Place the sample into a 1.5 mL microcentrifuge tube (not provided). Add 150 mg
siliconized glass beads or sea sand and 200 μL Buffer PL1. Homogenize
sample using a micro pistil and vortex regularly. Add additional 100 μL
Buffer PL1 and continue to homogenize the sample.
Note: If the sample can not be handled easily because e.g. the sample material
is soaking up too much buffer, additional Buffer PL1 can be added. Note that the
volume of Buffer PC (step 4) has to be increased proportionally.
Optional: If the sample is rich in RNA or protein, we recommend adding 10 μL
RNase A and/or Proteinase K (5 – 10 mg / mL stock solution, see ordering
information), respectively, to the PL1 lysis solution in order to minimize
contaminants.
Incubate for 10 min at 65 °C.
Add 100 μL chloroform. Vortex for 10 s and separate phases by centrifugation
for 15 min at 20,000 x g. Pipette the top aqueous layer into a new 1.5 mL
microcentrifuge tube (not provided).
For some fungi it might be advantageous to increase the incubation time to
30 – 60 min.
Proceed with section 5.1, step 3.

Sea sand (siliconized)
Homogenize sample
Weigh 5 g soil or 2 g dung into a petri dish. Add extraction buffer until the
sample is completely soaked. Heat the sample in a microwave oven (400 W)
for a few seconds until the extraction buffer is foaming.
Extraction buffer may be added to keep the sample in a slushy state.
2
Cell lysis
Transfer sample into a bead mill or mortar. Add 0.5 mL sea sand and disrupt
the sample.

8.1Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible cause and suggestions
Homogenization of plant material was not sufficient
•
For most species we recommend grinding with steel beads
or mortar and pestle (see section 2.4). For disruption of the
cell wall it is important to homogenize the plant material
thoroughly until the sample is ground to a fine powder.
•
Instead of freezing in liquid nitrogen the sample can also be
lyophilized and easily ground at room temperature.
Suboptimal lysis buffer was used
•
Lysis efficiencies of Buffer PL1 (CTAB) and Buffer PL2 (SDS)
are different and depend on the plant species. Try both
buffers in a side-by-side purification to find the best detergent
system to lyse your plant material.
Suboptimal lysis buffer volume was used
•
DNA yield
is low
Cell lysis might be insufficient and too much DNA might get
lost during lysate clarification if e.g. dry material soaks up
too much lysis buffer. Use more lysis buffer and increase the
volume of Binding Buffer PC proportionally.
Suboptimal binding buffer volume was used
•
Increase Binding Buffer PC proportionally if more lysis buffer
was used.
Extraction of DNA from plant material during lysis was insufficient
•
Increase incubation time in lysis buffer (up to overnight).
Suboptimal Elution
•
The DNA can either be eluted in higher volumes or by
repeating the elution step up to three times. Incubate
NucleoSpin® Plant II Column with elution buffer at 65°C for
at least 5 minutes.
•
Also check the pH of the elution buffer, which should be in
the range of pH 8.0 – 8.5. To ensure correct pH, use supplied
Elution Buffer PE (5 mM Tris/HCl, pH 8.5).
MACHEREY-NAGEL – 12/ 2010, Rev. 05
29
Genomic DNA from Plant
Problem
Possible cause and suggestions
Sample was too viscous due to too much sample material or
material carry-over.
NucleoSpin®
Filter or
NucleoSpin®
Plant II Column
is clogged
•
Centrifuge large amounts of sample material before loading
it onto the NucleoSpin® Filter or Filter L / XL.
•
Make sure the cleared lysate is absolutely free of resuspended
matter before loading it onto the NucleoSpin® Plant II or Plant
II Midi / Maxi Column.
•
Increase centrifugation speed and time.
•
Use more Lysis Buffer PL1 or PL2.
Sample was contaminated with DNase
•
DNA is
degraded
If another elution buffer than Buffer PE is used, make sure
it is free of DNase activity, for example, by addition of 1 mM
EDTA or heating the buffer to 70 °C for 10 min.
Centrifugation speed was too high
•
Centrifuge at a maximum speed of 11,000 x g. Higher
velocities may lead to shearing of the DNA.
Elution buffer contains EDTA
•
DNA quality
is low
Salt or ethanol carry-over
•
30
EDTA may disturb subsequent reactions. Use water or
the supplied Elution Buffer PE (5 mM Tris/HCl, pH 8.5) for
elution.
Make sure the last two wash steps were done with Wash
Buffer PW2 and the membrane was dried according to the
protocol.
