M13mp18 FOUNDATION™ ssDNA Scaffold
DNA you can build on!

M13mp18 scaffold, also commonly referred to as 7249 because of the number of bases in the single stranded DNA (ssDNA) sequence, is the purified ssDNA from a well-characterized bacteriophage (phage) commonly used in biological research. In 2006, M13mp18 was first utilized by Dr. Paul Rothemund at the California Institute of Technology to create ssDNA nanostructures called DNA Origami (Nature,2006). Since then, DNA Origami has caught the interest of many scientists who have built upon this concept. A majority of DNA Origami researchers use M13mp18 for their DNA Origami because it is well characterized and commercially available. Guild BioSciences has put together a "Scaffold Recommendations" document to help customers get the best results out of their FOUNDATION M13mp18 ssDNA scaffold.

Guild BioSciences puts our FOUNDATION M13mp18 ssDNA scaffold through a number of quality checks to confirm purity, stability, correct sequence identity, and usability. We even assemble a simple DNA Origami nanostructure for each M13mp18 lot manufactured to ensure the FOUNDATION™ M13mp18 ssDNA scaffold performs properly. Even with these high quality standards, Guild BioSciences’ M13mp18 pricing is 1/10th of some of our competitors. To order FOUNDATION™ M13mp18 ssDNA scaffold please click on the “M13mp18” link below:
