DNA amplification fingerprinting using very short arbitrary oligonucleotide primers. Support Center Support Center. Following polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis pagethese demonstrate an array of amplicons that yield a banding fingerprint that is characteristic for each combination of short primer and DNA source.

The conditions required for effective long chain, dual primer PCR are considerably more stringent with respect to hybridization and enzymatic conditions than for daf. There appears to be some particular advantages to daf compared to the more traditional PCR approach.

DNA amplification fingerprinting using arbitrary oligonucleotide primers.

This technique has been designated DNA amplification fingerprinting daf. Can J Infect Dis.

Particularly important are amplificatioj specialized silver staining method 8 required for resolution of small, as opposed to large, amplicons, and the ampljfication concentrations required for effective priming. Please review our privacy policy.


Welsh J, McClelland M. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Until then it would seem reasonable to predict that daf technology will provide high versatility while retaining the selectivity and sensitivity of long, dual primer PCR and will shortly be part of the diagnostic trade of clinical microbiologists. The polymerase chain reaction.

DNA amplification fingerprinting using arbitrary oligonucleotide primers.

An overview and development of diagnostic protocols at the LCDC. DNA diagnostics — Molecular techniques and automation. Application of the polymerase chain reaction to fingerprintijg diagnosis of human genetic disease. Fast and sensitive silver staining of DNA in polyacrylamide gels.

A new method of using molecular genetics for medical diagnosis. The high sensitivity and specificity of properly targeted long chain primer pairs and the great variety of specimens amenable to PCR analysis, including nonculturable specimens such as paraffin embedded tissues, has generated numerous diagnostic applications 4.

The polymerase chain reaction: Reiss J, Cooper DN.

Another genetic approach has recently been suggested by two groups 56 in which PCR amplification of DNA polymorphisms was directed by single small primers only eight to 10 nucleotides in length. The use of long, dual primer PCR requires that there be extensive preexisting fiingerprinting of the target sequences. N Engl J Med. Fingerprinting genomes using PCR with arbitrary primers.


DNA amplification fingerprinting: Another diagnostic tool?

There is not such a requirement for daf. DNA polymorphism amplified by arbitrary primers are useful as genetic markers. U se of the polymerase chain reaction pcramplification of targeted nucleotide sequences as a means of identifying microorganisms for diagnostic and epidemiologic purposes 12has initiated a transformation fingerrpinting laboratory based approaches to infectious disease diagnosis and was the subject of an earlier LCDC report 3.

Multiple priming sites on each DNA strand are amplified efficiently by short primers under relaxed conditions and the number of amplicons reproducibly obtained in daf is largely dependent on the short primer sequence rather than length, provided the number exceeds four 5 — 7.
