Polyacrylamide gels from electromobility shift assays. Polyacrylamide gels showing the decrease in amounts of protein complex with labelled oligomer as the concentration of the competing non-labelled oligomer increases (lanes marked x5 through x25). Lane marked ’C’ has no competitor and represents the basal levels of labelled complex. The measure of displacement of the labelled oligomer is expressed as a ratio of radio-labelled product, for each lane, divided by the basal value, presented in Table 2. Comparison of allele specific DNA-protein complex stability is a ratio of the highest competitor concentration (x25) of each of the two alleles. Thus for rs1799722 (A) allele A binds proteins 1.66 times better than allele G and for rs2528521 (B) allele A binds proteins 2.62 times better than allele G (Table 2, extreme right column).
