1. DNase footprinting
A lab technique used to find out which segments of a DNA molecule are protected by DNA-binding protein s from attack by endonuclease enzyme s, which break down DNA into smaller fragments by cleaving its phosphodiester bond s. The technique does this with gel electrophoresis to find out which parts of the DNA have sites for proteins to attach to them, by comparing DNA which has been in the presence of DNA-binding proteins with DNA that is "pure."
