It is important to note that different forms of DNA move through the gel at different rates.

Place the gel elekyroforesis into the casting apparatus. Understand the mechanism by which ethidium bromide allows for the visualization of DNA bands 8. Support Center Support Center. Detection of two restriction endonuclease activities in H.

DNA bands should show up as orange fluorescent bands. Author information Copyright and License information Disclaimer.

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.

Alternatively, the gel may also be stained after electrophoresis in running buffer containing 0. Place the gel tray on paper towels to absorb any extra running buffer. In the example shown, DNA fragments of bp, bp and bp are separated on a 1.

Second, the dyes provide color and simplify the loading process. However, in certain situations, such as when hazardous waste disposal is difficult or when young students are performing an experiment, a less toxic dye may be preferred. Tertiary and quaternary structure and aqueous polysaccharide systems which model cell wall adhesion: The cathode black leads should be closer the wells than the anode red leads.


In general, the higher the concentration of agarose, the smaller the pore size. 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.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Published online Apr Preparation of the Gel Weigh out the appropriate mass of agarose into an Erlenmeyer flask. EtBr is a suspect mutagen and carcinogen, therefore one must exercise care when handling agarose gels containing it.

Molecular sieving is determined by the size of pores generated by the bundles of agarose 7 in the gel matrix. To separate DNA fragments larger than 25 kb, one will need elfktroforesis use pulse field gel electrophoresis 6which involves the application of alternating current from agarrosa different directions. At 30 s intervals, remove the flask and swirl the contents to mix well.

The use of agarose gel electrophoresis revolutionized the separation of DNA. Please review our privacy policy. Add enough running elektroforeesis to cover the surface of the gel.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Agarose gel electrophoresis is the most effective way of separating DNA fragments of varying sizes ranging from bp to 25 kb 1. Low melting agarose is generally used when the isolation of separated DNA fragments is desired. DNA fragments smaller than bp are more effectively separated using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. This means that 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. Agarose gel electrophoresis has proven to be an efficient and effective way of separating nucleic acids.


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. Figure 5 represents a typical result after agarose gel electrophoresis of PCR products. Prepare an agarose gel for electrophoresis of DNA samples 5.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Observing Separated DNA fragments When electrophoresis has completed, turn off the power supply and remove the lid of the gel box.

Pei Yun Lee at ude. Traditional agarose gels are most effective at the separation of DNA fragments between bp and 25 kb. Drain off excess buffer from the surface of the gel. Turn on elekfroforesis power supply and verify that both gel box and power supply are working. Remove the gel from the gel tray and expose the gel to uv light. This is most commonly done by heating in a microwave, but can also be agzrosa over a Bunsen flame.
