DNA fragments smaller than bp elektroforesia more effectively separated using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. First they add density to the sample, allowing it to sink into the gel. Agarose gel electrophoresis has proven to be an efficient and effective way of separating nucleic acids.

Prepare an agarose gel for electrophoresis of DNA samples 5. Slowly and carefully load the DNA sample s into the gel Fig.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Place the gel tray on paper towels to absorb any extra running buffer. 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. Understand the mechanism by which DNA fragments are separated within a gel matrix 2. During gelation, agarose polymers associate non-covalently and form a network of bundles whose pore sizes determine a gel’s molecular sieving properties.

The phosphate backbone of the DNA and RNA molecule is negatively charged, therefore when placed in an electric field, DNA fragments will migrate to the positively charged anode.


Loading dye helps to track how far your DNA sample has traveled, and also allows the sample to sink into the gel. 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.

Gloves should always be worn elektrofotesis handling gels containing EtBr.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

It is important to use the same running buffer as the one used to prepare the gel. In addition, EtBr is considered a hazardous waste and must be disposed of appropriately. Failure to do so will warp the gel tray.

Replace the lid to the gel box. Preparation of the Gel Weigh out the appropriate mass of agarose into an Erlenmeyer flask. The gel was exposed to uv light and the picture taken with a gel documentation system. Determine the sizes of separated DNA fragments. National Center for Biotechnology InformationElektrofoersis.

Disclosures We have nothing to disclose. In the example shown, DNA fragments of bp, bp and bp are separated on a 1. The use of agarose gel electrophoresis revolutionized the separation of DNA.

However, their sensitivities are lower than that of EtBr.

After separation, the DNA molecules can be visualized under uv light after staining with an appropriate dye. Agarose is isolated from the seaweed genera Gelidium and Gracilariaand consists of repeated agarobiose L- and D-galactose subunits 2.


Abstract Agarose gel electrophoresis is the most effective way of separating DNA fragments of varying sizes ranging from bp to 25 kb 1. Observation of individual DNA molecules undergoing gel electrophoresis.

Understand how conformation of the DNA molecule will determine its mobility through a gel matrix 3. Elektroforesos modern DNA sequencing capillary electrophoresis is used, whereby capillary tubes are filled with a gel matrix. Prior to the adoption of agarose gels, DNA was primarily separated using sucrose density gradient centrifugation, which only provided an approximation of size.

When exposed to uv light, electrons in the aromatic ring of the ethidium molecule are activated, which leads to the release of energy light as the electrons return to ground state. Of these, Methyl Blue and Crystal Violet do not wlektroforesis 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.

Attach the leads of the gel box to the power supply. Remove the gel from the gel tray and expose the gel to uv light. It is important to note that different forms of DNA move through the gel at different rates. To view a copy of this license, visit http: Remove gel from the gel box.
