Abstract: DNA modified by trans-diamminedichloroplatinum (trans-DDP) is suggested as an effective probe for non-isotopic hybridisation. Highly specific anti trans-DDP-DNA antibodies and peroxidase-conjugated antibodies to antirabbit Ig and protein A system have been used for the hybrides visualisation. This method allows one to detect 2 pg/mm2 DNA.
