A simple, reversible way to a stop restriction reaction is by adding EDTA, which chelates Mg2+, thereby preventing catalysis. If further manipulations of the digested DNA are to be performed, the restriction endonuclease should be inactivated. Phenol/chloroform extraction and ethanol precipitation is an irreversible method for inactivation and removal of all restriction endonucleases...
