Characterization of bovine microsatellites by silver staining



Characterization of bovine microsatellites by silver staining



Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics 112(5-6): 415-420



Silver staining was used to detect amplified microsatellite loci from the bovine genome. The standard silver-staining procedure was modified to allow more direct control in the development of signals. Microsatellites were analysed, to compare the silver-staining technique and the direct incorporation of a radioactive tracer. With silver staining, levels of sensitivity were achieved that are typical of those with radioisotopic detection. Also, silver staining is a cheaper process, is less hazardous to operators and the environment, and can be performed in laboratories without radioisotopic facilities. A significant advantage of silver staining is the speed of the process, producing results of a typing in 1 day.
