Hi,
  I store my GenecleanII kit on shelf, at RT.  Now the NaI solution has
turned yellow.  I think it's because of the oxidization of I- anion into
iodide I, perhaps by air.
  My question is whether iodide will react with the DNA molecule in the
agarose gel?  Iodide is both an oxidizing and a reducing agent, I believe?
                                                                      jie
