Single-day apolipoprotein E genotyping

J Neurosci Methods. 1994 Aug;53(2):125-7. doi: 10.1016/0165-0270(94)90168-6.


Current methods of genotyping an individual's apolipoprotein (ApoE) alleles involve time-consuming separations of digested fragments on high-percentage non-denaturing polyacrylamide gels. However, it is possible to separate the fragments quicker and with greater ease using agarose.
