The 5′ and 3′ ends of DNA are fundamental to its structure and function, particularly in the process of DNA replication. These structural ends are also significant in a variety of molecular biology techniques, including Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization (FISH), a clinical testing method used to detect and study genetic abnormalities.

Centromeres and telomeres are essential components of chromosomes, playing distinct roles in their structure and function. In the context of Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH), a molecular biology technique used for visualizing specific DNA sequences within chromosomes, labeling centromeres and telomeres can provide valuable information about chromosome organization, integrity, and genetic abnormalities.
Oncoviruses are a group of viruses that have the ability to cause cancer or contribute to the development of cancer. These viruses are capable of integrating their genetic material into the DNA of the host cell, leading to disruptions in normal cellular processes, uncontrolled cell division, and, ultimately, the formation of tumors. While not all […]
