Two different lengths of long unique synthetic oligonucleotide probes (37- and 48-mers) specific for human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II beta genes were synthesized. These oligonucleotides were utilized to examine factors influencing hybridization specificity. Both probe length and stringency of washing conditions were found to be crucial factors for sequence-specific hybridization. © 1990.
