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

Understand how conformation of the DNA molecule will determine its mobility through a gel matrix 3.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

Pulsed field gel electrophoresis. Failure to do so will warp the gel tray. The gel was exposed to uv light and the picture taken jurrnal a gel documentation system.

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. First they add density to the sample, allowing it to sink into the gel. The aim of this study was to design dha for optimization of DNA visualization and measuring the concentration in the gel electrophoresis using MatLab- based software.

In addition, EtBr is considered a hazardous waste and must be disposed of appropriately. Agarose can be modified to create low melting agarose through hydroxyethylation.

Agarose Gel Electrophoresis for the Separation of DNA Fragments

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 will need to use pulse field gel electrophoresis 6which involves the application of alternating current from two different directions.


The leading model for DNA movement through an agarose gel is “biased reptation”, whereby the leading edge moves forward and pulls the rest of the molecule along 4.

The research results showed that the amount of DNA analysed using a spectrophotometer tend to similar with the measurement results using the MatLab-based software although there was differences in quantitative values.

The rate of migration of a DNA molecule through a gel is determined by the following: Drain off excess buffer from the surface of the gel. Remove the gel from the gel tray and expose the gel to uv light. Because of cost, ease of use, and sensitivity, EtBr still remains the dye of choice for many researchers. After separation, the DNA molecules can be visualized under uv light after staining with an appropriate dye. Hasil pengukuran jumlah DNA menggunakan spektrofotometer memiliki kecenderungan yang sama dengan hasil pengukuran menggunakan perangkat lunak berbasis MatLab meskipun terdapat perbedaan nilai kuantitatif.

In general, the higher the concentration of agarose, the smaller the pore size. Overview of agarose gel properties. It is important to note that different forms of DNA move through the gel at jjrnal rates. Published online Apr User Username Password Remember me. However, their sensitivities are lower than that of EtBr. Place an appropriate comb into the gel mold to create the wells. Hasil penelitian menggunakan piranti tersebut memperlihatkan visualisasi DNA yang lebih optimal.


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.

In conclusion, since the adoption of agarose gels in the s for the separation of DNA, it has proven to be one of the most useful and versatile techniques in biological sciences research. It is important to use the same running buffer as the elektrfooresis used to prepare the gel.

Gloves should always be worn when handling gels containing Jurnxl. Article Tools How to cite item. 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.

Molecules of deoxyribo nucleic acid DNA show a strong polarization allowing for both motions of the dielectrophoresis induced by polarization and electrophoresis based on its negative charge. Short Protocols in Molecular Biology. Molecular sieving is determined by the size of pores generated by the bundles of agarose 7 in the gel matrix.
