5' EndTag Labeling DNA/RNA Kit

Catalog Number: MB-9001

Availability: In stock

$125.00
Unit Size: 1 kit

Fluorescence in situ hybridization of human chromosomes using 5' EndTag Texas Red-labeled pHuR 98 detected directly and mounted in Vectashield Mounting Media with DAPI. Zoom

Overview

    Features:

    • Enables simple and uniform labeling of 5' ends of the DNA, RNA or unmodified oligonucleotides. It is ideal for labeling of PCR primers beacuse it leaves 3' end unmodified.
    • Choice of diverse labels - fluorophores, biotin, haptens, affinity ligands (not included)

     

    Kit components:

    The kit is designed to perform 10 end labeling reactions of up to 0.6 nmols of 5' ends (e.g. about 5 μg of a 25 base oligo) per reaction and includes:

    • T4 polynucleotide kinase
    • 10x reaction buffer
    • ATPγS
    • Precipitant
    • Alkaline Phosphatase

     

    Note: Requires thiol-reactive labeling reagent:

    • Biotin (Long Arm) Maleimide 
    • DNP Maleimide
    • Fluorescein (Long Arm) Maleimide
    • Fucose Maleimide
    • Texas Red® Maleimide

    Note on Shipping: This item is shipped on ice requiring additional shipping charges.

    Details

    End labeling is a favored method for applications where an internal label might interfere with hybridization or sequence specific protein binding.

    5' or 3' EndTag™ labeled nucleic acids can be used for applications such as DNA hybridization, PCR, in situ hybridization, the binding of capture probes to affinity matrices, or electrophoretic mobility shift assays (EMSA). Short oligonucleotides are labeled more efficiently with these systems than with other methods. In addition, end labeling of oligonucleotides is an economical alternative to having labels inserted during synthesis.

    Both the 5' EndTag™ and the 3' EndTag™ Nucleic Acid Labeling Systems enable the covalent attachment of a variety of fluorescent dyes, haptens, or affinity tags to the respective ends of the nucleic acids using thiol-specific chemistry. Labels containing thiol-reactive groups (maleimides, iodoacetamides, etc.) can easily be incorporated.

    Labeling time is about 1 hour with very little hands-on time.

    5' EndTag™ Labeling Kit

    The 5' EndTag™ System labels 5' ends of DNA, RNA, or unmodified oligonucleotides. 5' EndTag™ is ideal for labeling PCR primers because a label is attached only at the 5' end, leaving the 3' end available for polymerization.

    Labeling with the 5' EndTag™ Kit is achieved in two steps:

    1. T4 polynucleotide kinase transfers a thiophosphate from ATPγS to the 5' -OH group of the nucleic acid. (5' phosphorylated ends are converted to 5' -OH groups with the included alkaline phosphatase).

    2. Thiolated sample is coupled to a thiol-reactive label. The 5' EndTag™ Kit is designed to perform 10 labeling reactions of up to 0.6 nmols of 5' ends (e.g. about 5 μg of a 25 base oligo) per reaction. Thiol-reactive label is not included in the kit and should be selected separately.

    Transmission electron micrographs

    Transmission electron micrographs of molecules of influenza A viral ribonucleoprotein particles (vRNPs) labeled at the 5' end of the vRNA with biotin using 5' EndTag Kit, and further labeled with streptavidin gold. vRNPs from influenza A were purified according to Kemler et al., on a glycerol gradient with modifications as described in Wu et al.

    Nuclear import assay

    Nuclear import assay in digitonin-permeabilized HeLa cells of biotinylated vRNPs. vRNPs were labeled first at the 5' end of the vRNA with biotin using the 5' EndTag Kit and then with Vector Fluorescein Streptavidin. This allowed for direct fluorescence visualization of the vRNPs on a confocal fluorescence microscope. Nuclear import assays were carried out as described in Wu et al. The negative control consists of vRNPs added to the cells in the absence of energy and exogenous cytosol. In the presence of energy and cytosol, the fluorescein-labeled vRNPs successfully enter the nucleus, with a high degree of nucleolar staining. Courtesy of Drs. Winco WH Wu and Nelly Panté, University of British Columbia, Vancouver BC, Canada.
