Description: A quick chart of various probe concentrations to use in your Northern blotting experiments. Includes recommendations for both radiolabeled and nonisotopically labeled DNA, RNA and oligonucleotide probes.
Analysis of Differential Gene Expression - Technical Bulletin #500
Description: Here, we review three popular RNA detection/quantitation methods: Northern blot analysis, Ribonuclease Protection Assays (RPAs) and Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR). All of these can be used to confirm results from microarray analysis and differential display experiments.
Comparison of Different Methods of mRNA Quantitation
Description: A brief comparison of nuclease protection assays, Northern blotting, RT-PCR and in situ hybridization for the detection and quantitation of RNA.
Northern Analysis: The Basics
Description: "Northern Analysis: The Basics" leads you through the steps involved in Northern blotting and explains the considerable improvements Ambion has found over standard Northern blotting protocols. If you have never performed Northern analysis, or if you want to optimize your Northern blot experiments, you will definitely want to check out this informative article.
