  • Smartseq Exonuclease

    Hi all,

    We have a few questions about using exonuclease before the preamp step of the Smartseq protocol.

    1. Is this step intended for removing primer dimers, not excess single-stranded primers? Is that why lambda exonuclease (which works on dsDNA) is chosen instead of ExoI?

    2. Wouldn't lambda exonuclease digest away the double-stranded cDNA template? If the ends got digested, the priming sites may be lost.

    3. We have tried replacing lambda exonuclease with ExoI for a 30 min incubation, then an 85C, 15 min inactivation before adding primers for preamp step. However, yield is very low. Can somebody explain why?

    4. Does anyone have the reference for the first suggestion of using lambda exonuclease?

    Many thanks!

    Hi, have you got answers? I am also curious about this.

      I am afraid we don't have answers to those questions. We tried including lambda exonuclease or ExoI and the yield was low in both cases. We ended up skipping exonuclease digestion altogether and the yield was good. If you do need to include an exonuclease step, I would suggest reaching out to the authors of: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-05347-6. They mentioned the use of ExoI.

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
