    Solution Preview

    The answer is all of the above as gene probes can be labelled with enzymes, fluorescent dyes and radioisotopes.

    Depending upon your particular experiment, you may decide one or the other types of labelled probes is most suitable. The use of gene probes is based on the prinicple of complementary nucleotide sequences hybridizing to one another. The probe is used to bind to a specific sequence of template ...
