I am desperately looking for the reference for the plasmid DNA
minipreparation method which uses the so called Rusconi mix:

500ul Lysozyme (10mg/ml)
500ul 0.5M EDTA
250ul 1M Tris pH 7.5
100ul RNase (10mg/ml)
1.15ml Glycerol (87%)
0.02%Bromophenol blue (endconc. of 2mg/10ml)
7.5ml H2O

store at -20 in aliquots

suspend 1 colony in 12-15ul
let stand at RT 10-15 min
add 2ul Phenol, vortex, spin 2'

Load aqueous supernatant on gel

If anyone knows it, please provide me with the needed information.

Thanks in advance
