I do PAGE for proteins rather than DNA, but perhaps some hints:
- The MW difference is very small, only about 3%. Try optimizing the
separation by using gradient gels and by using a gel concentration where
your molecule ends up 2/3 - 3/4 down the gel.
- If you can find conditions where labeled and unlabeled DNA have
different net charge that would greatly improve separation. Without
knowing exactly what label you attach where, it is difficult to give
