By digesting total DNA with these enzymes, it is possible to obtain large DNA fragments. These can be separated by subjecting them to an electric field whose orientation is changed periodically during electrophoresis. By altering the orientation of the current, differently sized DNA fragments alter their direction of movement according to their size, making it possible to resolve DNA fragments of 100-1000 kb in size.
