Factors influencing DNA migration from individual cells subjected to gel electrophoresis.


Alkaline and neutral gel electrophoresis of individual mammalian cells allows detection of DNA single- and double-strand breaks, respectively. For both the alkaline and the neutral assays, lysis conditions influence how much DNA migrates, and factors in addition to DNA size play a role in migration. In particular, the tight packing of DNA in individual… (More)
