Protection of DNA against DNase I digestion by SASPs binding. The pJIR751 DNA was incubated alone (lane 1), with DNase I (lane 2), with SASPs and DNase I (lane 3) or DNase I in the presence of 8 M urea (lane 4). M indicates the migration of DNA size markers (Gene Ruler™ 1-kb ladder; Fermentas). The results are from representative experiments; these results were highly reproducible (data not shown).
