well antibodies can of course be raised against DNA, lipidmolecules etc as well and in that sense it all depends on which antibodies your elisa plate was coated with in other words which is specificity is. in any experiment there are false positives (ie binders that are not those of the predicted sp...

Depends on your OD 260/280 and OD 260/230 (for protein and carbohydrate contamination if I'm not mistaken) but look this up in any good lab manual like maneatis

Assuming you have the sequence of your breakpoint, BLAST that sequence in Pubmed and then just simply look whether the BLAST refers you to two different that might have been joined together after the breakpoint. If you'd want to you could usually blast it in the UCSC genome browser (comfortably call...

Yes it is epigenetic since it changes phenotypic traits without changing a genetic trait ie it leaves the actual DNA message intact, and as such is epigenetic. Very simple actually.

Topic: Linkage disequilibrium
Replies: 1
Views: 1617

Linkage is established when a certain genetic marker (say a RFLP or a SNP), ie a genotypic trait, is inherited consistently through generations in a family together with a phenotypic trait, say a disease like type II diabetes (or non-insulin dependent diabetes). If the genetic marker and the phenoty...
