Gel electrophoresis results of PCR amplification of mtMutS from genomic DNA and transcribed mRNA. A 1.5% TBE gel displaying the results of PCR amplification of the 5'-end of the mtMutS gene from genomic mtDNA (lanes 2 & 5) and reverse-transcribed mRNA (lanes 3 & 6). Controls (lanes 4 & 7) of corresponding mRNA samples lacking polymerase in reverse-transcription reactions were included to demonstrate that cDNA PCR products were not of genomic DNA origin.
