EMSA and supershift assay using probes allelic for the g.3836A>G SNP and nuclear extracts from longissimus dorsi muscle of 91 day old fetuses. Addition of nuclear extracts (NE), labelled probes, 100-fold molar excess of different unlabelled competitors and antibody is indicated above each lane (Comp A: competitor bearing the wild type A allele; Comp G: competitor bearing the mutant G allele; Comp Sp1: probe bearing the consensus Sp1 binding motif as unspecific competitor; Comp C/EBP: probe bearing the consensus C/EBP binding motif). s indicates specific DNA:protein complex involving C/EBPβ; ss indicates supershifted complex; roman numerals (I-II) indicate DNA:protein complex formed by labelled probe bearing the consensus Sp1 binding motif
