Unformatted text preview: , the substrate has been linearized prior to the assay using AvaI. In lanes 9- 12, the substrate is a relaxed circular DNA. Note that relaxed circular DNA migrates slower on the gel than the linear form. Please answer the following questions based on the data shown in Part C: A. (5 points) Why did the DNA in lane 2 migrate faster in the gel than the DNA in lane 9? Gel electrophoresis resolves DNA molecules based on both shape and size. Circular DNA molecules migrate in a gel at a rate proportional to their compactness. Supercoiled DNA is more compact than a relaxed circle. The DNA in lane 2 is supercoiled while the DNA in lane 9 is relaxed. Therefore the differences in mobilities is likely due to differences in the levels of supercoil...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
