General description

Gel loading solution is used as a tracking dye during electrophoresis. The dyes have a slight negative charge and will migrate the same direction as DNA, allowing the user to monitor the progress of molecules moving through the gel. The rate of migration varies with gel composition. Dilute 1:6 with sample before loading.


Suitable for use with agarose or non-denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE), which may be part of Northern and Southern blot hybridization procedures.


Gel loading buffer contains 0.25% bromophenol blue, 0.25% xylene cyanol, and 40% sucrose.

Other Notes

Band migration can be expected as follows:
On polyacrylamide gels, xylene cyanole comigrates with approximately 450-460 bp DNA, while bromophenol blue comigrates with 15-100 bp DNA. On 0.5 – 1.4% agarose gels, xylene cyanole comigrates with 4 kb dsDNA, while bromophenol blue comigrates with 300 bp dsDNA.

While screening Le(a+b+)Polynesian DNA samples for a candidate Se(w) allele, a point mutation (C571-->T) resulting in a new stop codon (Arg191-->stop) in the alpha(1,2)fucosyltransferase gene (FUT2) was identified. This point mutation resulted in the gaining of a new restriction enzyme...

We present a protocol for reliably detecting DNA copy number aberrations in a single human cell. Multiple displacement-amplified DNAs of a cell are hybridized to a 3,000-bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) array and to an Affymetrix 250,000 (250K)-SNP array. Subsequent copy...
