not suitable for substrate for typical DNase assays (“crude oligonucleotides", <50 bp)
Herring Sperm DNA, also known as hsDNA is a natural source of DNA designed for DNA binding agent studies. (1) The detection limits of hsDNA are around 5.0ng and linear ranges of light scattering intensity (I(LS)) is 0.05-2.5 mµg.
Herring sperm DNA (hsDNA) is a natural DNA used in studies of DNA binding anticancer agents and DNA binding agents that modulate DNA structure and function. Herring sperm DNA is also used in physicochemical studies of DNA behavior in solution.
