Abstract

This method is to roughly estimate DNA molecular weight. One of its applications is to calculate the ratio of vector to insert in a ligation reaction (please see Standard DNA Cloning protocol).

Procedure

Anhydrous molecular weight of each nucleotide is (see reference 1):
A= 313.21
T= 304.2
C= 289.18
G=329.21
For rough estimation, typically average the molecular weights of all four, average weight of a DNA nucleotide (in salt solution) = 325 Daltons (see reference 2)
MW of a single-strand DNA molecule= (#of bp) x (325 Daltons/per base)
Moles of a ssDNA molecule = (grams of DNA)/ (MW in Daltons)
For accurate estimation of MW of ssDNA, an online calculator (see Reference 2) is available.

简介

这种方法是粗略估计DNA分子量。 其应用之一是计算连接反应中载体与插入物的比例(请参见标准DNA克隆方案)。
每个核苷酸的无水分子量为(参见参考文献1):
A = 313.21
T = 304.2
C = 289.18
G = 329.21
对于粗略估计,通常平均所有四个分子量,DNA核苷酸的平均重量(在盐溶液中)=
单链DNA分子的MW =(#of bp)×(325道尔顿/每碱基)
ssDNA分子的摩尔数=(DNA克数)/MW以道尔顿为单位)
为了准确估计ssDNA的MW,可使用在线计算器 1

I have 6 micrograms of plasmid dna(puc 18) from 2 ml of axcenic culture.now my question is how many plasmids ( puc 18) expect from 6 micrograms of dna

i would like to ask you something that I can undersatnd. I had read in some guide book of molecular biology and had found that average weiht of nuckleotide is 330 Dantons and I have read now in your page that is 325 Daltons, although I had knwe that before now the doub returned, I am not sure which can I use if the first or the second or both

I have also seen 330 Daltons in other company's catalogs. "325" was cited from New England Biolabs catalog book. If you want to have a rough estimation of the MW of a DNA nucleotide, 330 or 325 might not matter that much.

But, If you know the number of As Cs Gs and Ts (or the number of GC and AT pairs), you can do a more accurate determination of MW of DNA (or dsDNA) based on the molecular weight of each monophosporylated nucleotides. I should also mention that the numbers provided in the current protocol are the molecular weight of each nucleotides given that they loose a water molecule of 18.0 when polymerized.

Hope this helps.

What is the different between molecular weight and molecular mass of DNA please?

I think, at least in practice, they are considered to be the same. For more explanation, you may find this link helpful, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molecular_mass.
