When these dilute solutions are treated with aqueous sodium hypochlolite solution, the ethidium bromide is converted to products that are no longer mutagenic.
Although one nylon membrane (Brand a) expressed positive DNA signals after staining with ethidium bromide, DNA signals were not detected in other membranes [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1B OMITTED].
Amplified products were visualised under UV light after electrophoresis on a 2% agarose gel and staining with ethidium bromide.
Based on the in vitro cytotoxic assays and morphological assessment studies using fluorescence microscopic study (acridine orange and ethidium bromide double staining) and mitochondrial potential measurements, it was found that ice 2 and 3 possess good antiproliferative effect via mitochondrial mediated apoptosis in human lung and breast cancer cells.
We stain the gel using InstaStain Ethidium Bromide paper (Edvotek) because this reduces potential exposure to ethidium bromide and is safer for student use.
2% agarose gel electrophoresis and ethidium bromide staining and were purified using High pure PCR purification kit (Roche Co.
The gel was stained with ethidium bromide [16] and visualized using Vilber Lourmat INFINITY-CAP gel imager (Germany).
This study examined several genomic DNA extraction methods to determine which will provide a DNA product free from humic acid contamination and of sufficient quantity to be detected by gel electrophoresis and ethidium bromide staining.
After gel electrophoresis, the ethidium bromide stained PCR products were visualized under UV light.
All PCR products of positive reactions by agarose gel electrophoresis with ethidium bromide staining were sequenced completely in both directions for confirmation of sequence specificity.
Noting that many researchers use ethidium bromide staining to monitor the progress of gradient separation of the DNA bands from agarose gel slices, Spectronics said its E-Series lamps ensure a higher sensitivity of detection during such separation, without damaging the ethidium bromide-stained DNA.
