Dear Lisa,

Here some references for DNA quantitation methods.

Hoechst 33258 method:
- Labarca C, Paigen K; Analytical Biochemistry, 102,344-352 1980
- Lipman J; Analytical Biochemistry, 176, 128-131 1989
- Kim Y-J et al; Analytical Biochemistry, 174,168-176 1988

Mithramycin fluoresence
- Groyer A, Robel P; Analytical Biochemistry, 106, 262-268 1980

 In our lab we only used the Hoechst 33258 method.
