RFLP alleles
« on: 20/01/2006 19:03:04 »
Can we use Northern Blotting,Acrylamide gel electrophoresis and PCR to detect RFLP alleles of 2.5 kbp and 5kbp or 7.5 kbp of a human chromosome 4 locus??

I'm not sure why you'd want to use Northern blotting - that's for RNA. It would be more sensible to amplify the region by PCR and look at the band sizes.

Alternatively you'd perform a restriction digest, electrophorese the products on agarose and then perform a southern blot probing the gel with the region common to all alleles.
