AFLP problems

I have seen the same thing happen with AFLP bands of all different
sizes.  However, when I load this reamplified product on an agarose or
mini NON-denaturing acrylamide gel, I only see a single band of the
correct size.  Go ahead and clone your product.  When you sequence it,
you will most likely get a fragment of the correct size.  I did.  I
don't know what causes the extra banding on the denaturing PAG .  Could
be denaturation of secondary structure?

Good luck!
