TRF length estimated by Southern blotting does, however, have disadvantages: (a) TRF does not indicate pure telomere repeat length but includes various unknown lengths of subtelomic sequences; (b) to estimate TRF length, genomic DNA should be purified as intact (unsheared) as possible; (c) the mean TRF length estimated by reading smear patterns of autoradiograms may be inaccurate; and (d) Southern blotting is time consuming.
