In this report, we compared the serum protein electrophoresis (SPE) patterns in a subset of HIVinfected subjects who did not. A major advance in serum protein electrophoresis in the last decade has been the introduction of capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE). Two dedicated.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

The concentration of agarose in a gel will depend on the sizes of the DNA fragments to be separated, with most gels ranging between 0. Understand how conformation of the DNA molecule will determine its mobility through a gel matrix 3. EtBr works by intercalating itself in the DNA molecule in a concentration dependent manner. Drain off excess buffer from the surface of the gel. Gloves should always be worn when handling gels containing EtBr.

Pulsed field gel electrophoresis. In conclusion, since the adoption of agarose gels in the s for the separation of DNA, it has proven to be one of the most useful and versatile techniques in biological sciences research.

Supercoiled plasmid DNA, because of its compact conformation, moves through the gel fastest, followed by a linear DNA fragment of the same size, with the open circular form traveling the slowest. To view a copy of this license, visit http: Repeat until the agarose has completely dissolved. The gel electrophoresis of DNA. In modern DNA sequencing capillary electrophoresis is used, whereby capillary tubes are filled with a gel matrix.

Agarose gel electrophoresis is the most effective way of separating DNA fragments of varying sizes ranging from bp to 25 kb 1. The use of capillary tubes allows for the application of high voltages, thereby enabling the separation of DNA fragments and the determination of DNA sequence quickly. Abstract Agarose gel electrophoresis is the most effective way of separating DNA fragments of varying sizes ranging from bp to 25 kb 1. The leading model for DNA movement through an agarose gel is “biased reptation”, whereby the leading edge moves forward and pulls the rest of the molecule along 4.


Molecular sieving is determined by the size of pores generated by the bundles of agarose 7 in the gel matrix. Loading dye helps to track how far your DNA sample has traveled, and also allows the sample to sink into the gel.

The gel was exposed to uv light and the picture taken with a gel documentation system. Slowly and carefully load the DNA sample s into the gel Fig. Set up the gel electrophoresis apparatus and power supply 6. During gelation, agarose polymers associate non-covalently and form a network of bundles whose pore sizes determine a gel’s molecular sieving properties.

Alternative dyes for the staining of DNA are available; however EtBr remains the most popular one due to its sensitivity and cost. Prior to the adoption of agarose gels, DNA was primarily separated using sucrose density gradient centrifugation, which only provided an approximation of size. By following this protocol, students should be able to: First they add density to the sample, allowing it to sink into the gel.

It is important to note that different forms of DNA move through the gel at different rates. This means progein a DNA fragment of the same size will take longer to move through a low melting agarose gel as opposed to a standard agarose gel.

Take a picture of the gel Fig.

Identify an agarose solution of appropriate concentration for their needs 4. Low melting agarose is generally used when the isolation of separated DNA fragments is desired. The phosphate backbone of the DNA and RNA molecule is negatively charged, therefore when placed in an electric field, DNA fragments will migrate to the elektroforeais charged anode. EtBr is a suspected carcinogen and must be properly disposed of per institution regulations.


Because of cost, ease of use, and sensitivity, EtBr still remains the dye of choice for many researchers. Tertiary and quaternary structure and aqueous polysaccharide systems which model cell wall adhesion: This article has been cited by protfin articles in PMC.

Of these, Methyl Blue and Crystal Violet do not require exposure of the gel to uv light for visualization of DNA bands, thereby reducing the probability of mutation if recovery of the DNA fragment from the gel is desired. Remove the comb and place the gel in the gel box.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Double check that the electrodes are plugged into the correct slots in the power supply. Figure 5 represents a typical result after agarose gel electrophoresis of PCR products. Traditional agarose gels are most effective at the separation of DNA fragments between bp and 25 kb. Place the gel tray into the casting apparatus. Add enough running buffer to cover the surface of the gel.

Detection of elektrofoersis restriction endonuclease activities in H. At 30 s intervals, remove the flask and swirl the contents to mix well. This is most commonly done using a gel documentation system Fig.
