DNA fiber combing protocol using in-house reagents and coverslips to analyze replication fork dynamics inmammalian cells.

Publication Date Jun 17, 2022


DNA fiber combing is a versatile technique that provides insight into replication fork dynamics at single-molecule resolution. DNA fibers are bound to silanized coverslips and combed, which straightens and aligns the fibers along a single axis. Here, we present a DNA fiber combing protocol that does not use commercial kits; we detail the steps to prepare all materials, reagents, and silanized coverslips. We describe the use of DLD-1 cells, but the protocol is amenable to other cell types.
