OK here is help. There are a number of steps you can use but two of these are the most relevant.

1. Add glycine to the growing culture when the A600 is = 0.9 and at a final concentration of 50mM. When you pellet the culture after 4 hours, this cell pellet can be totally lysed in suspension by lysozyme(0.1 mg/ml), proteinase K (300ug/ml) and 0.1 %SDS.

2. Use French Press ( 15000 Psi ) for lysis.

Good luck
