There is a kit from Kreatech Diagnostics for labelling single-
and doublestranded DNA or RNA with digoxigenin, fluorescin or
biotin. It works with a so calls universal linkage system, that
is al platinum compound, over which the marker group is bound on
about 90 % of the G in your fragment.
I used the digoxigenin-version of the kit for labelling oligos
for in situ hybridization, but without good results. But perhaps
the fluorescin-variant is better...
Kreatech is a company in Amstedam, Netherlands.
That´s the number for asking, who is the Kreatech-distributor in
your area: Phone: +31 20 691 91 81
Fax: +31 20 696 35 31
Good luck Gabriele Kerber
