Evaluation of optimal RNA extraction method from human carotid atherosclerotic plaque.
in Cardiovascular Pathology (2014)
Dr. Mitton and Diane Studzinski of the Surgical Research Lab at Beaumont (Dr Shanely MD FACS, Dr Long MD FACS), developed a method to powder surgical atherosclerotic plaque tissue for obtaining DNA or RNA in good quality. Dr. Shaffer MD and Samreen Ahmed continued to test the method for RNA extraction as the protocol was adopted by the Beaumont Biobank. This paper shows that the original method developed in the Surgical Research Lab (liquid nitrogen powdering and use of column based RNA extraction) provides superior RNA quality to other variations tested in the Biobank (RNA later, or phenol extraction).
