hi
I have been trying to prepare RNase (10mg/ml)by dissolving it i sodium acetate (5.2)and adjusting the ph with addition of tris 7.4 ,but every time i prepare like this i end up with no result. After running the gel i still get rna contamination.Is there any other method of preparing Rnase?

plz any1 can help?
Thanks in advance

Why are you using sodium acetate? I have not done this for some time, but I think I used pure water to dissolve.....

What concentration was the sodium acetate? Was it 0.01M?

hi
how to prepare using water and how to adjust the pH ? I think rnase will precipitate in neutral ph?
can u give me the protocol?

hi there

yes i have been using 0.01M sodium acetate
how can i modify my protocol.
Can u plz tell me the optimum pH for rnase?

I used the protocol for preparing RNase A from Sambrook, which seems to work fine. An important step is to boil the RNase before you use it. The protocol is as follow:
1. dissolve RNase in 0.01M sodium acetate
2. heat to 100C for 15min, cool down at room temperature
3. adjust pH by adding 0.1vol of 1M Tris-Cl (ph 7.4)
4. dispense in aliquots and store at -20C

The optimum working range for RNase A is between pH 7 and 8 (I think).

If that protocol doesn't work, it might be worth to buy pre-made RNase A from Invitrogen.

thanks i have been using the same protocol but anyways its not working maybe somehing is wrong with the enzyme powder.

I just added the water....like it was suggested at the Data sheet.....when Sigma uses water to test it, I thought it will be fine for me :)
It works fine in my applications (use it in genomic DNA extraction) and the pH of my working solutions is in the range where the activity should be fine, so I never thought of dissolving it anywhere else :D maybe I should the next time?????

The powder is lyophilized from solution, which will contain buffers. Adding water reconstitutes the buffers as well as the protein.
