Dextran sulfate is a heparin-like polysaccharide which increases the hybridization rate of nucleic acids between 3-fold and 100-fold depending on the sample used. This is accomplished by reducing the volume of the DNA-containing solution through the polymer, thereby concentrating the DNA. However, dextran sulfate should only be used if the hybridization rate or the amount of DNA is a limiting factor for the identification of 'rare' sequences. The effect of dextran sulfate is highest for polynucleotides with> 250 nucleotides. No effect is observed for oligonucleotides <14 bases. For the hybridization of bacterial colonies or plaques the application also means no advantage. It can even lead to a high background. The handling of a dextran sulfate solution is additionally made difficult by the high viscosity of the solution. A 50% stock solution is slightly yellowish, the working concentration is 10%. If aqueous dextran sulfate solutions are to be autoclaved, they must, For example with sodium bicarbonate, in order to prevent decomposition during autoclaving.
