We are making RNA probes using DIG labeling methods. We run them on a
formaldehyde gel to check the integrity and size. Now we stumble to a
simple question but I can't find the answers. What are the sizes of the
28S , 18S and 5S rRNA bands. The first two are -if I remember correctly-
4.8 and 2.8 kb, but does anyone know the size of the 5S rRNA?
