37 Scopus citations


Procedures have been developed for performing electrophoresis in agarose gels with agarose concentrations as low as 0.035%. Using these procedures, agarose gel electrophoresis of the following has been performed: (a) bacteriophage T7 missing its tail fibers; no detectable sieving of this spherical particle (radius = 30.1 nm) occurred below 0.075% agarose, (b) duplex DNAs with molecular weights between 26.5 × 106 and 110 × 106.
