Abstract

MANY eukaryotic DNAs can be resolved into two or more components by centrifugation to equilibrium in neutral CsCl1,2, the minor components being called satellite DNAs. In addition to CsCl satellites, minor portions of the genome have been resolved from the main DNA band by differential binding with Ag+ or Hg2+ ions, followed by centrifugation in Cs2SO4.
