Ethidium bromide is an intercalating agent that attaches itselfbetween the helix of a DNA. Because the ethidium molecule lights upwhen illuminated by an ultraviolet light, it …is used often inbiochemistry laboratories so that fragment of DNA that has beenseparated by gel can be visualized. (MORE)
The bromide ion is Br - . A bromide is a chemical compound where bromine is the most electronegative element. It may be ionic and contain the bromide ion, Br - or covalent …like methyl bromide, CH 3 Br. (MORE)
A 'Bromide' does not exist independently but is a salt of hydrobromic acid HBr, and therefore the bromide ion has to be combined with a metal ion to produce a stable independe…nt compound..
The most common bromides are Potassium Bromide KBr and Sodium Bromide NaBr, although there are others like Ammonium Bromide NH4Br (where the '4' is small and subscript), Magnesium Bromide MgBr2 (where the '2' is small and subscript), and Aluminium Bromide AlBr3 (where the '3' is small and subscript).
