How would a molecular probe for a Southern blot differ from that of a western blot?

0 votes

 

A Southern blot would use a nucleic acid probe complementary to an intron region of the mRNA sequence, whereas a western blot would use an antibody probe complementary to an exon region of the mRNA.

A Southern blot would use a nucleic acid probe complementary to the DNA sequence, while a western blot would use an antibody probe that recognizes the amino acid sequence.

Both Southern and western blots would use a nucleic acid probe complementary to the DNA sequence, but western blot probes must be part of an exon region.

A Southern blot and western blot could both use a nucleic acid probe, but a Southern probe is complementary to the DNA sequence, and a western probe is complementary to the mRNA sequence.
