Normally, diethyl pyrocarbonate
(DEPC) is added to the buffers and solutions required in order to inactivate RNases, which is tantamount to overkill, or excessive prevention of secondary contamination, such as that resulting from impure chemicals or materials.
Traditionally, a 0.1% solution of diethyl pyrocarbonate
(DEPC) has been used to inactivate RNases in buffers and water.
All solutions were treated with diethyl pyrocarbonate
, and surfaces were decontaminated with RNaseZap (Ambion).
