Definitions for "Blotting"
Biochemical technique in which macromolecules separated on an agarose or polyacrylamide gel are transferred to a sheet of paper, thereby immobilizing them for further analysis.
A technique for detecting one RNA within a mixture of RNAs (a Northern blot) or one type of DNA within of a mixture of DNAs (a Southern blot). A blot can prove whether that one species of RNA or DNA is present, how much is there, and its approximate size. Basically, blotting involves gel electrophoresis, transfer to a blotting membrane (typically nitrocellulose or activated nylon), and incubating with a radioactive probe. Exposing the membrane to X-ray film produces darkening at a spot correlating with the position of the DNA or RNA of interest. The darker the spot, the more nucleic acid was present there.
The process of transferring nucleic acids or proteins from an unstable medium eg electrophoresis gel or agar plate onto nylon or nitrocellulose membrane. This allows the blotted material to be analysed by interaction with a specific, labelled probe to test for the presence of a specific molecular structure. For example a particular nucleic acid base sequence can be recognised by base pairing with a nucleic acid probe of complementary sequence.
To remove excess oil or moisture from lipstick or any other creamy makeup to "set" it for longer wear.
A process which removes excess oil or moisture from lipstick or any other creamy makeup adding to the longevity of the product's external application (“set” for longer wear).
using an absorbent material such as tissues or paper towels, or a squeezed out brush, to pick up and lighten a wet or damp wash. Can be used to lighten large areas or pick out fine details. • See our tutorial.
The action of the developer in "drawing out" the penetrant from a surface discontinuity causing maximum bleed-out for increased contrast and sensitivity.

A condition in which a pen lets out large drops of ink from the point and feed, rather than a smooth, controlled flow. Often happens just before a pen runs out of ink.
