3 SEQLAB 03 WHO WE ARE SEQLAB is the DNA service in Germany. Our speciality is DNA sequencing performed by our highly effective service as seen in our tenders. SEQLAB, founded in 1996 possesses extensive experience in this ﬁeld. No DNA is too sparse, no PCR-product too contaminated with secondary bands and no band shadow too difﬁcult for us to clone. Five scientists and ten laboratory assistants are dedicated to fulﬁlling the prime purpose of this ﬁrm which is the delivery of highest quality DNA analysis of the most modern standard to all concerned in industry, university, clinic and organizations for private research. 6 Milagros Lazo Silva 2 Dr. Andreas Wolf Martina Dreier 7 Dr. Bernd-Peter Ernst 12 Dr. Michael Betzler 13 Jasna Fraatz Secondary structures, inverted repeats, homo- and heteropolymeric stretches, high GC or ATs We are not saying they are no problem but we do say that, as sure as the Gänseliesel of Göttingen is the most kissed girl in Germany, we can solve them. If you give us a true sample of DNA for our Full Service we will not rest until the sequence lies open. Promise!

4 04 SEQLAB WHAT WE DO We are DNA service providers and have set as kernel of our competence the sequencing on commission in our differing, individually relevant proffered services: The HotShot is the ace in SEQLABs history. Although ﬂuorescent colour band sequencing has been available since the 90s and was offered by various sequencing centres the costs remained so high that many smaller laboratories and university departments preferred to use their own resources. This involved radioactive methods as a rule, and the yield, following two days of heavy work, was information on a modest 250 bases. The breakthrough occurred in 1999 with SEQLABs HotShot primer and the DNA for sequencing were sent ready mixed and the savings in work time were passed on to the client in the form of reduced costs. Thus sequencing within one s owns four walls became even less attractive economically. Since it was not possible to repeat the cycle sequencing a suitable cycle sequencing (CS) protocol had to be developed to enable the sequencing of DNAs including those with simple secondary structures to be carried out successfully at the ﬁrst try. This protocol has been available since 2000 and constantly delivers good results. 97 % of clean DNAs with no ex-cessive secondary structures deliver 99 % exact readings. AdvantageRead is HotShot s big brother and ﬁlls the gap towards the FullService. Based on the same CS protocol it renders none the less possible a repeat evaluation under optimal conditions through a separate delivery of primer and DNA substrate should the ﬁrst attempt be inconclusive and deliver poor results, due to unsuitable secondary structures. The FullService is a more advanced step. Our experience at SEQLAB in chemistry and the CS evaluation enables us to identify just about every sequence, thus bringing us to the reputation of problem solvers. There are virtually no DNAs with secondary structures which ﬁnd their way to SEQLAB and remain undeciphered. Apart from the sequencing described we also offer a wide spectrum of further services and products: GENOMICS Nutcracker sequencing of hairpin DNA structures; direct sequencing of cosmids, fosmids, BACs and PACs, whole genome sequencing, shotgun sequencing of larger constructs; primer design and synthesis, in vitro ampliﬁcation, plasmid preparations; DNA puriﬁcation systems for many purposes; PROTEOMICS Protein sequencing and identiﬁcation; Polyclonal antibodies from various animal sources; peptides with and without modiﬁcations.

6 06 GENOMICS YOUR ORDER (INFO AND TIPS) The delivery of the sequence data follows usually 24 hours after receipt of the post (24 hour service). The samples usually arrive before pm, are put into the cycle sequence reaction the same day and into the sequencer that evening. Results are read and posted the following day. HotShot sequencing For the HotShot sequencing you send us the template and the primer of choice (already mixed) in a PCR tube of 200 µl with a ﬂat lid. The PCR cups should be numbered on the lid beginning with 1 and then sequentially. Total volume should not exceed 7 µl: DNA in 10 mm TRIS, ph 8.5; 20 pmol primer. HotShot samples should not be wrapped in paraﬁlm or foil. Necessary DNA quantity FOR HOTSHOT SEQUENCING For plasmid DNAs please send µg. For PCR products the following quantities should be sent: length of fragment divided by 4 = quantity in ng, e. g.: PCR product ~500 bp : 4 = ~125 ng; a little extra is no disadvantage. The primer should be one of 18 25mer with a Tm of C. Please observe these exact instructions for the HotShot sequencing. They are indispensable for the successful automatic work programme. FOR ADVANTAGEREAD SEQUENCING Plasmid DNA: µg with a concentration of ng/ µl. PCR products: quantity dependent on the length with a concentration of: PCR fragment length divided by 20 = concentration ng/µl; e. g.: PCR-Product ~500 bp : 20 = ~25 ng/µl. FOR FULLSERVICE SEQUENCING ds-dna (bp) optimal amount of DNA (ng) required concentration of DNA (ng/µl*) , , , , , ,5 FOR PCR PRODUCTS As a rule of thumb: for DNA quantity: PCRfragment length divided by 4 = DNA quantity in ng; for the concentration: PCR length divided by 20 = concentration in ng/µl. For the sequencing we need 3 to 4 times the amount of the calculated DNA quantity, so that the possibility of repeating the sequence reactions is given, should need arise. FOR PLASMIDS 3 8 µg DNA depending on the size of the vector. Minimum concentration is 200 ng/µl; for larger plasmids (vector + insertion > 8000 bp) is a concentration of ng/µl recommended. Please dissolve the DNA in Tris/Cl, 10mM, ph 8.5!
7 GENOMICS % GC - content 82.3 % GC - content Precipitation of DNA Please precipitate the DNA solely at room temperature; the reagents employed should also be stored at room temperature. Salts tend to precipitate at lower temperatures, thereby disturbing the sequencing. The DNA should in addition be well washed with at least the same volume of 70 % ethyl alcohol, with which the precipitation is undertaken. Please leave the DNA precipitate for 5 10 minutes fully under 70 % ethanol; preferable is a second washing. Plasmid preparations For a specimen of plasmid DNA to deliver excellent sequence results the following points should be observed: 1) culture medium residues carried over in the preparation lead to bad results. The medium must be completely removed following the centrifuging down of the cells. We recommend therefore the washing of the cells in Tris/Cl-puffer solution (10mM, ph 8.5) and then the complete removal of the puffer. 2) Overloaded Mini-, Midi- and Maxi-Kit columns deliver comparatively large amounts of DNA, the sequencing of which is, however, difﬁcult or impossible. We recommend therefore the puriﬁcation by column of minipreps max. 2 ml, of midipreps max. 20 ml and of maxipreps at the most 100 ml cell suspension. As an alternative for low copy plasmids: up to 10 ml cell suspension for a miniprep, washing of the cells with Tris/Cl buffer (10 ml, ph 8.5), and then a second miniprep with µg plasmid DNA from the ﬁrst preparation. PCR products The following tests improve the probability of obtaining good sequence readings from PCR products: a) It should be possible to reamplify a good yield of the PCR products; should the PCR product band only be weakly visible by the reampliﬁcation then the sequencing will itself be poor. b) A product should result only with both PCR primers; to test this you can lay down two PCR reactions and use the forward primer in one and the reverse primer in the second. Should a product result by one of these tests, then the corresponding primer was used as the forward and also as the reverse primer (so called one-primer PCR ). We note this problem frequently with PCR products of genomic DNA. c) PCR products should be cleared of superﬂuous primers and dntps as well as of any primer dimer products to avoid inﬂuencing the following sequence reactions. OVER 90 AVAILABLE PRIMERS are listed on our internet page under services, link: available primers. You can speedily ﬁnd there which primers are appropriate for your vector. The use of these primers is included in our offer on your commission of Advantage-Read or Full Service. Primerdesign/ -synthesis Primers can also be ordered. Simple and advantageous primers (up to 25mer) are offered in conjunction to a sequencing commission. PACKAGING OF THE SAMPLES FOR TRANSPORT BY POST: Please use padded envelopes for your post. Since these are not a 100 % protection against breakage the tubes should be additionally packed in plastic boxes, falcon casings or small cardboard boxes. HotShot samples should be solely sent in 200 µl cups with a ﬂat lid. These must not be wrapped in paraﬁlm or similar foil! The DNA samples for Advantage-Read and FullService sequencing commissions should be sent in 1.5 ml cups (the lid alone wrapped with paraﬁlm) or in 1.5 ml screw cap vessels.

Following the lysis of the vegetable substance with consecutive puriﬁcation from unsoluble components and unwelcome contaminants (e. g. phenols) binding of the genomic DNA by means of a ﬁlter cartridge and the elution of highly pure DNA is achieved. Our RNA-Mini-Kit enables the speedy and efﬁcient isolation of the total RNA out of eukaryotic single celled organisms, bacteria and macerated tissue. Following the lysis of the original substance a DNase I free selective puriﬁcation of the genomic DNA is carried out. The RNA is then repeatedly washed and eluted. The obtained total RNA is of excellent quality and outstandingly suitable for all further applications. Our Bacteria-DNA-Kit enables the speedy and efﬁcient isolation of bacterial genomic DNA out of pellets of grampositive and negative bacteria from young cultures. Following the initial lysis step and the consequent proteinase K digestion of the proteigenic cell residues the liberated DNA is bound to the membrane of the afﬁnity ﬁlter cartridge.

HPLC-separation of PTH-amino acids Delivery time: around 2 3 weeks Dr. Rüdiger Kind
15 PROTEOMICS 15 OUR PEPTIDE SYNTHESIS Peptide syntheses are also offered by SEQLAB. Synthesis is carried out by the solid-phase-method under the employment of the most modern synthesis machines. We proceed according to the FMOC method. Peptide synthesis You may choose between different purity levels: Above 70 % peptide purity is sufﬁcient for the production of polyclonal antibodies ( immunisation ) by various animals. Purity stages above 80 %, over 90 % and over 95 % are necessary for more demanding immune studies in vitro and in vivo. All peptides are puriﬁed with HPLC. A mass spectrogram is delivered with each peptide, thus enabling an exact identiﬁcation to be made. In addition we offer speciﬁc modiﬁcations of the peptides such as MAPS, MAP-4, D-aminoacids, N-acetylisation and C-amidisation. Phosphorylisation with phosphoserine and phosphothreonine can also be carried out. Further modiﬁcations are available on request. Conjugations on various carrier proteins can also be performed. As a rule the conjugation of ca. 2 3 mg peptide and BSA or KLH is undertaken. Please enquire as to further carriers. We check if the sequence that you request involves changes in the standard synthesis method on receipt of your commission. Should these cause an increase in the cost you will, of course, be informed immediately. Delivery time Peptide syntheses with HPLC puriﬁcation up to 20 AS are carried out within 4 weeks. Longer peptides and such with modiﬁcations or difﬁcult amino acids can take up to 6 weeks Dr. Werner Baussmerth
