>I got troubles in extracting plasmid DNA from Streptococcus
>pneumoniae (Gram-positive). The plasmid is about 15 kb.
>Pneumococcal chromosomal DNA and plasmid DNA are AT rich (about
>62%). The method I used is a modified alkali lysis protocol.
>Solution II contains 1% SDS and 0.175 N NaOH instead of 0.2 N NaOH.
>Solution III contains 50 mM Tris.Cl-pH8.0 in addition to 0.1 M
I have found a mistake in the modified protocol. 0.1 M NaAc-pH4.8
in Solution III should be 3 M. I misunderstood the modified protocol
which was not mine.
I appreciate the suggestions appearing in Bionet and delivered in my
