Discussion Agarose gel electrophoresis has proven to be an efficient and effective way of separating nucleic acids.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Pulsed field gel electrophoresis. Pei Yun Lee at ude.

Select an appropriate voltage for the separation of DNA fragments 7. Loading dyes used in gel electrophoresis serve three major purposes. The DNA standard or ladder should be separated to a degree that allows for the useful determination of the sizes of sample bands. Identify an agarose solution of appropriate concentration for their needs 4. Double check that the electrodes are plugged into the leektroforesis slots in the power supply.

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.

Detection of two restriction endonuclease activities in H. Place the gel tray into the casting apparatus. Molecular sieving is determined by the size of pores generated by the bundles of agarose 7 in the gel matrix. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Finally, agarossa dyes move at standard rates through the gel, allowing for the estimation of the distance that DNA fragments have migrated.


Add running buffer to the agarose-containing flask. In this way larger sized DNA fragments are separated by the speed at which they reorient themselves with the changes in current direction.

Articles from Journal of Visualized Experiments: To separate DNA fragments larger than 25 kb, one gell need to use pulse field gel electrophoresis 6which involves the application of alternating current from two different directions. EtBr works by intercalating itself in the DNA molecule in a concentration dependent manner. Observing Separated DNA fragments When electrophoresis has completed, turn off the power supply and remove the lid of the gel elektroforrsis.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Loading dye helps to track how far your DNA sample has traveled, and also allows the sample to sink into the gel. The use of capillary tubes allows for the application of high voltages, thereby enabling the separation of DNA fragments and the determination of DNA sequence quickly.

Prepare an agarose gel for electrophoresis of DNA samples 5. Agarose can be modified to create low melting agarose through hydroxyethylation.


After separation, the resulting DNA fragments are visible as clearly defined bands.

Drain off excess buffer from the surface of the gel. This is most commonly done by heating in a microwave, but can also be done over a Bunsen flame. During gelation, agarose polymers associate non-covalently and form a network of bundles agadosa pore sizes determine a gel’s molecular sieving properties.

An appropriate DNA size marker should always be loaded along with experimental samples.

Representative Results Figure 5 represents a typical result after agarose gel electrophoresis of PCR products. Alternatively, one may also tape the open edges of a gel tray to create a mold. The gel electrophoresis of DNA.

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.

In addition, EtBr is considered a hazardous waste and must be disposed of appropriately. To separate DNA using agarose gel electrophoresis, the DNA is loaded into pre-cast wells in the gel and a current applied. At 30 s intervals, remove the flask and swirl the contents to mix well.
