I have been isolating DNA by chloroform/phenol extraction from human
neutrophils. After isolation I have been running the isolated preps on 1%
agarose gels. I have found that very little DNA shows up in the gels
(by ETBr) when I use fresh cells. If I let the cells sit in the incubator
for 2 or 3 hours more dna shows up in the gels (more and more dna shoes up
for the first 12 hours).
Is this "normal"?
Can someone explain or guess what is happening?
