In situ hybridisation uses a labelled complementary DNA or RNA strand (i.e. probe) to localise a specific DNA or RNA sequence in a portion or section of tissue in situ. This is a powerful technique for identifying specific mRNA species within individual cells in tissue sections, providing insights into physiological processes and disease. In situ hybridisation is used to reveal the location of specific nucleic acids sequences on chromosomes or in tissues, important for understanding the regulation and function of genes.
