Agarose is a purified linear galactoglycan hydrophilic colloid derived from agar or agar-containing algae. It is a linear polymer composed of β -d-galactosyl (1-4) linked to 3, 6-dehydrated α -L-galactosyl. As a gel reagent, it is commonly used for routine nucleic acid analysis by gel electrophoresis or blotting (such as Northern or Southern) and for protein applications, such as radiative immunodiffusion (RID) assay.
