Melting temperature of dna

From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

melting temperature of DNA --> denaturation temperature of DNA

That temperature at which, under a given set of conditions, double-stranded dNA is changed (50%) to single-stranded DNA; under standard conditions, the base composition of the DNA can be estimated from the denaturation temperature, since the greater the denaturation temperature, the greater the guanine-plus-cytosine content (i.e., gC content) of the DNA.

Synonym: melting temperature of DNA.
