- Obtain best results for in situ suppression (CISS) hybridization, DNA microarray application and many other hybridization applications. With the COT Human DNA, CGH Grade, reproducible and sensitive measurements of dsDNA concentration are possible. The COT fraction of human genomic DNA consists largely of rapidly annealing repetitive elements. These interspersed repetitive sequences (IRS) such as SINEs (small interspersed repetitive elements, e.g., Alu-elements) and LINEs (large interspersed repetitive elements, e.g., L1-elements) are distributed ubiquitously throughout the genome. COT Human DNA is prepared from human placental DNA by shearing, denaturing, and reannealing under conditions that enrich these repetitive elements.
- Use the COT Human DNA in the following applications:
- Nucleic acid labeling and detection
- DNA microarray applications such as comparative genome hybridization and sequence capture
- Complex hybridization of human nucleic acids like FISH
In microarray applications, COT Human DNA is used in hybridization solutions to block repetitive DNA sample sequences from nonspecific hybridizations. In filter and other hybridization techniques, COT Human DNA is also used in prehybridization solutions to inactivate nonspecific target binding sites.
