Potassium acetate is the potassium salt of acetic acid. It is prepared by the reaction of a potassium containing base e.g. potassium hydroxide or potassium carbonate with acetic acid. 5M Potassium acetate is a very common buffer used in molecular biology. It is mainly used as a salt for the ethanol precipitation of DNA during alkaline lysis method. It is also used in the isolation of DNA from soil samples and during the isolation of mammalian DNA. This solution is also used to precipitate dodecyl sulfate (DS) and DS-bound proteins, allowing the removal of proteins from DNA.
