Summary

This is an example of 'Point Mutation: Transversion' wherein 'C' in the control patient gene is replaced by 'G' in the affected patient gene, leading to a slightly altered protein, consequences of which include:
Samples 1, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 9 & 11 can be considered as heterozygous for the simple reason their SSCP profiles seem to be a combination of profiles of the other samples…

Polymerase Chain Reation

Additionally, each of the bands observed in the SSCP profiles of Samples 1, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 9 & 11 can be correlated with those observed in the SSCP profiles of samples 2, 10 & 12 (Allele profile 1; the control type) and/or samples 7, 8 & 13 (Allele profile 3; one of the mutant SSCP alleles). Such a situation is generally seen in heterozygosity.

Currently, there are hundreds of different types of PCR are being used in different laboratories but the basic principle remains same. The overall process of PCR can be summarized as follows. 1) Mixture of all constituents of PCR like dNTPs, Primers (forward and reverse), Buffer and template DNA will be mixed in desired concentration. 2) The first step is amplification, where the temperature is set at 94C for 2-5 minutes for denaturation of double stranded DNA, a process called initial denaturation, 3) After initial denaturation, sample is kept for 30 sec at 94C for further denaturation, 4)…
