Nucleic acid hybridization

Introduction: Nucleic acid hybridization

Description of Nucleic acid hybridization

Nucleic acid hybridization: "zipping" reaction between complementary DNA or RNA single strands to form a duplex (double stranded) molecule; basis of many techniques for assaying nucleic acid sequence complementarity.
Source: CRISP

Nucleic acid hybridization: Widely used technique which exploits the ability of complementary sequences in single-stranded DNAs or RNAs to pair with each other to form a double helix. Hybridization can take place between two complimentary DNA sequences, between a single-stranded DNA and a complementary RNA, or between two RNA sequences. The technique is used to detect and isolate specific sequences, measure homology, or define other characteristics of one or both strands. (Kendrew, Encyclopedia of Molecular Biology, 1994, p503).
