Nick Translation-based DNA Probe Labeling

visit product page

Labeling of DNA probes for in situ hybridization is most often performed by enzymatic incorporation of labeled dUTP using a mixture of DNase I / DNA polymerase I (Nick Translation) (Tab. 1) (Ribgy et al. (1977), Morrison et al. (2003), Wiegant et al. (2001)).
