An experiment on apoptosis induced by polyamine adducts produced in the presence of serum amine oxidase

Biochem Educ. 2000 Mar 1;28(2):110-112.


A two-session experiment is proposed to train students with an easy, economic and educative procedure to detect the typical DNA ladder produced in many apoptotic events. The procedure is accurate enough to provide an easy way to compare degrees of damage in DNA caused by different treatments.
