Schematic drawing of gel electrophoresis, showing characteristics of different RE-based assays. Panel A) Assay by Frosst et al.1 Panel B) Assay by Ulvik et al.18 Panel C) Assay by Bravo-Osorio et al.19 The lanes labeled TT* and xx* denote a TT genotype that is partially digested, and any genotype with no digestion, respectively. The distances between fragments are proportional to the differences in the logarithm of the fragment sizes.
