20x SSC (saline-sodium citrate) is a concentrated solution used in molecular biology for nucleic acid hybridization and washing steps. It contains sodium chloride and sodium citrate at twenty times the normal concentration found in standard saline solutions. SSC provides stringent conditions for nucleic acid binding, helping to minimize nonspecific interactions during hybridization. Typically diluted before use, it ensures optimal stringency levels for specific and sensitive nucleic acid detection. 20x SSC is a critical reagent in techniques such as Southern blotting and in situ hybridization, enabling precise analysis of nucleic acid sequences.
