electrophoresis (protein, PCR DNA/RNA fragment, DGGE, TGGE, etc.) is difficult. Information about band positions alone does not provide.

Agarose gel electrophoresis has proven to be an efficient and effective way of separating nucleic acids. This is most commonly done using a gel documentation system Fig. B 66 3 Slowly and carefully load the DNA sample s into the gel Fig.

After separation, the DNA molecules can be visualized under uv light after staining with an appropriate dye. Vna review our privacy policy. The DNA standard or ladder should be separated to a degree that allows for the useful determination of the sizes of sample bands.

Chou, C, Tegenfeldt J. Alternative dyes for the staining of DNA eoektroforesis available; however EtBr remains the most popular one due to its sensitivity and cost. The cathode black leads should be closer the wells than the anode red leads. Failure to do so will warp the gel tray. Tanaka K and N Yoshiike.

The phosphate backbone of the DNA and RNA molecule is elektroforsis charged, therefore when placed in an electric field, DNA fragments will migrate to the positively charged anode. Second, the dyes provide color and simplify the loading process. 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.


Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Goldfarb D and Yin W Considering high subjective and less quantifiable result of the visualization based qualitative test of DNA on gel electrophoresis, designing the tool using a combination of the principles of electrophoresis and dielectrophoresis completed with a software for optimization of DNA visualization and to measure the concentration of small and largesized DNA fragment is very needed.

Molecular Biology of The Cell. Allow the agarose to set at room temperature. Figure 5 represents a typical result after agarose gel electrophoresis of PCR products.

Set up the gel electrophoresis apparatus and power supply 6. Because of cost, ease of use, and sensitivity, EtBr still remains the dye of choice for many researchers.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Remove the gel from the gel tray and expose the gel to uv light. Because the bundles associate with one another through non-covalent interactions 9it is possible to re-melt an agarose gel after it has set. By following this protocol, students should be able to: Place an appropriate comb into the gel mold to create the wells. Bray, J LewisM. Gloves should always be worn when handling gels containing EtBr.


Hasil penelitian menggunakan piranti tersebut memperlihatkan visualisasi Elektroflresis yang lebih optimal. Add enough running buffer to cover the surface of the gel.

About The Authors H. EtBr is the most common reagent used to stain DNA in agarose gels Ros and Anselmetti D. Hydroxyethylation reduces the packing density of the agarose bundles, effectively reducing their pore size 8.

Understand the mechanism by which ethidium bromide allows for the visualization of DNA bands 8.

Drain off excess buffer from the surface of the gel. Dielectrophoretic Manipulation of DNA: Nanyang Tech Univ, Singapore.

Moreover, all of the alternative dyes either cannot be or do not work well when added directly to the gel, therefore the gel will have to be post stained after electrophoresis. Observing Separated DNA fragments When electrophoresis has completed, turn off the power supply and remove the lid of the gel box.

Agarose’s judnal gel strength allows for the handling of low percentage gels for the separation of large DNA fragments. Discussion Agarose gel electrophoresis has proven to be an efficient and effective way of separating nucleic acids. However, their sensitivities are lower than that of EtBr. Gel loading dye is typically made at 6X concentration 0.
