Hello world,

in our lab we started to investigate apoptosis with special regards to 
endothelial cells. In many papers there is a standard procedure with 
dna-extraction by phenol/chloroform after lysis of the cells. Some authors
did it without extaction of the DNA. Can anybody tell us the advantages 
or disadvantages of omitting the extraction?
Are there easier or more simple methods available for detetction of apoptosis?
I think of fluorescence labeling (e.g. alkaline phosphatase) or things
like that?

Hoping to get valuable information
