Analysis of Telomeric G-overhangs by in-Gel Hybridization
Authors:  Sona Valuchova, Elisa Derboven and Karel Riha, date: 04/05/2016, view: 5233, Q&A: 0
Telomeric DNA in majority of eukaryotes consists of an array of TG-rich tandem repeats. The TG-rich DNA strand is oriented with its 3’ end towards chromosome termini and is usually longer than its complementary CA-rich strand, thus forming 3’ single ...
