A large number of studies have been conducted to investigate the specific movement of nucleic acids through agarose and polyacrylamide gels when exposed to a constant electrical field. Ogston concluded that nucleic acids perform a “particular mode of transport” when being separated electrophoretically through a gel matrix, which has since been dubbed Ogston sieving. It is the “radius of gyration” that governs the movement of the nucleic acid through the gel, and the more similarity in size there is between this and the...
