Product nameSpermine tetrahydrochloride, polyamine used for precipitation of DNA
DescriptionPolyamine used for precipitation of DNA from low salt aqueous buffers.
Spermine is a biogenic polyamine formed from spermidine and occurs in almost all tissues. It is essential for both neoplastic and normal tissue growth. Spermine is associated with nucleic acids, particularly in viruses, and is thought to stabilize the helical structure. Spermine tetrahydrochloride is used for precipitation of DNA from low salt aqueous buffers.
Storage instructionsStore at Room Temperature. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in water to 1 M
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
