I am currently conducting a genetics experiment on the Drosophila melanogaster species of fruit fly. In order to do my experiment on the alcohol hydrogenase gene, I need to use electrophoresis equipment and a particular dye.... I have ordered most of the chemicals required but one, the sodium succinate is going to take too long to arrive (i need to complete this ASAP for assessment!). does anybody know of a good chemical substitute for sodium succinate that I could use instead???
Any help would be appreciated,
