RE: [Histonet] methyl green[Scanned]

From:"Connolly, Brett M"

Inga, I checked this out some time ago.

To be more specific, methyl green binds selectively to A-T DNA rich
sequences in the major groove along the chromosome. I am not sure exactly
what moieties in the DNA it binds...i.e. bases, sugars etc.
See this reference, FEBS Letters 1993; 315(1):61-4.
