DNA extraction and quantification from touch and scrape preparations obtained from autopsy liver cells

Abstract: The objective of the present study was to develop a simplified low cost method for the collection and fixation of pediatric autopsy cells and to determine the quantitative and qualitative adequacy of extracted DNA. Touch and scrape preparations of pediatric liver cells were obtained from 15 cadavers at autopsy and fixed in 95% ethanol or 3:1 methanol:acetic acid. Material prepared by each fixation procedure was submitted to DNA extraction with the Wizard ® genomic DNA purification kit for DNA quantification an… Show more

“…The statistical analysis of the values regarding the quantity of the gDNA obtained was done with the ''StatsDirect" program. A Kruskal-Wallis test was applied to the gDNA quantity obtained for variance evaluation of independent samples as described by Ribeiro et al (2004).…”

“…Especially during the histopathological preparation, the production of TTIs does not add another laborious procedure besides the snap freezing of tumor tissue, which should be done in any case. The amount of cells on TTIs varied greatly between samples, resulting in a high variation of extracted DNA quantities per slide, as already reported in other studies [6] [7] [8] [10]. Compared to fresh or fresh frozen solid tumor pieces, the cell number on TTIs can be low, which can result in a limited DNA quantity.…”

“…The authors described a number of structural aberrations with a resolution limited by the respective platform [9]. As TTIs can be stored for many years without markedly influencing the quality of extractable DNA [10], these slides are a promising source for molecular studies.…”

“…In general, an EM study can be useful when histochemical analysis raises questions with respect to structural and functional relationships of a cell or a tissue. The present procedure seems to be generally applicable for this purpose because all tissues examined so far (pancreas, liver, colon, and small intestine) showed well-preserved ultrastructure, whereas reproducibility is very high due to its simplicity (Boermeester et al, 1995;Schellens et al, 1995;Van Noorden et al, 1995;Lettinga et al, 1996;Prentø, 1997;Metzger et al, 1998;Ribeiro et al, 2004).…”
