What Is a Nucleic Acid Probe?


Nucleic Acid Probe (DNA probe), is a sole strand of DNA that is tagged with a radioactive or fluorescent substance, and binds particularly to a corresponding DNA sequence. It is used to identify its integration through fusion with another DNA sample. The nuclear acid probes can give quick recognition of certain species such as mycobacterium.
