NOTE: The main purpose of steps 4 and 5 is to observe the size and efficiency of PCR products amplified by different primer combinations and thus to estimate the electrophoresis time on 6% denaturing acrylamide gels in the next step.
It does not require cDNA cloning and blotting and can even be applied in laboratories where radioactive labelling is not available by using the silver staining method that enables the detection and recovery of the PCR products from acrylamide gels.
Concentrations of diffused solute from acrylamide gel were measured using disodium fluorescein and GGR as chemical tracers in the field.
The nondenaturing electrophoresis system has nearly the same resolution as that obtained with denaturing acrylamide gels and silver staining.
To confirm the results, PCR products were sequenced or separated on 10% acrylamide gels.
While electrophoresis instrumentation has become more automated in recent years, the preparation of acrylamide gels remains a highly labor intensive task.
In addition, there are no hazardous reagents such as ethidium bromide, which is commonly used to visualize restriction digestion products on agarose or acrylamide gels.
