Why are you beeing so aggressive?

You can find the physico-chemical characterization of the NA-EtBr
interactions in:

   LePecq JB.  Paoletti C.
   J. Mol. Biol.  27(1):87-106, 1967.  

For a review, see:

   LePecq et al.
   Meth. Bioch. Anal., 20:41-86, 1971. 

For the rest, I won't answer your provocative and nearly insulting posting.
You seem to have completely missed the point. I was interested to know a
little more about a method that I had never used before and I said that I
was skeptical about a general application of the method. I have more years
of experience running agarose gels than you are probably assuming. Don't
assume on me, you don't know me.

Have a nice day, and please don't dump your aggressivity so easely.
