The extension requires two additional steps to the traditional transformation protocol: to allow the students time to treat their DNA sample and then to have more plates available for the students to transform the appropriate number of aliquots of competent cells (usually six: no DNA negative control, positive control of plasma with no treatment, amylase, protease, DNase, and RNase treatment).
In the same study, the researchers injected a chemical DNase inhibitor into one hind leg of each of four mice infected with flesh-eating strep disease and injected a placebo into the other hind leg.
These were harvested, treated with DNAse and the DNA released from the bacteria by boiling and freezing.
Human saliva is a common source of DNase. Any live or dead cell is a potential source of DNA contamination.
