SUMMARY, EXPLANATION AND LIMITATIONS:
Nova Ethidium Bromide Solution (1%) is a concentrated fluorescent staining solution for visualizing ribonucleic acids in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. Ethidium bromide is excited with a standard 302 ηm UV transilluminator and emits a red-orange signal.
Ethidium bromide is commonly used to detect nucleic acids in molecular biology laboratories. Ethidium bromide has also been used extensively to reduce mitochondrial DNA copy number in proliferating cells.
