bandshift assay
(= gel shift assay)
An assay for proteins, such as transcription factors, that bind specific DNA sequences. A labelled oligonucleotide corresponding to the recognition sequence is incubated with an appropriate nuclear protein extract, and run on a non-denaturing acrylamide gel. Oligonucleotides that have been bound by proteins are retarded relative to those that are unbound.
