DNA amplification fingerprinting: Another diagnostic tool?

DNA diagnostics — Molecular techniques and automation. Fast and sensitive silver staining of DNA in polyacrylamide gels. DNA amplification fingerprinting using very short arbitrary oligonucleotide primers. An overview and development of diagnostic protocols at the LCDC. The high fingerprlnting 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.

Support Center Support Center. DNA polymorphism amplified by arbitrary primers are fimgerprinting as genetic markers. The use of long, dual primer PCR requires that there be extensive preexisting knowledge of the target sequences. Application of the polymerase chain reaction to the diagnosis of human genetic disease.

U se of the polymerase chain reaction pcramplification of targeted nucleotide sequences as a means of identifying microorganisms for diagnostic and epidemiologic purposes 1fingerprintimghas initiated a transformation in laboratory based approaches to infectious disease diagnosis and was the subject of an earlier LCDC report 3.

Fingerprinting genomes using PCR with arbitrary primers. Multiple priming sites on each DNA strand are amplified efficiently by short primers under relaxed conditions and the number of amplicons reproducibly obtained amplificaton daf is largely dependent on the short primer sequence rather than length, provided the number exceeds four 5 — 7. 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 fingerpriting of clinical microbiologists.

DNA amplification fingerprinting using arbitrary oligonucleotide primers.

There appears to be some particular advantages to daf compared to the more traditional PCR approach. Welsh J, McClelland M. Particularly important are the specialized silver staining method 8 required for resolution of small, as opposed to large, amplicons, and the primer concentrations required for effective priming.

LCDC has begun the analysis of certain pseudomonads using this technology and we will shortly be reporting on its efficacy in our hands. Another genetic approach has recently been suggested fingerrpinting two groups 56 in which PCR amplification of DNA polymorphisms was directed by single small primers only eight to 10 nucleotides in length. Can J Infect Dis. The conditions required for effective long chain, dual primer PCR are considerably more stringent with respect to hybridization and enzymatic conditions than for daf.

The polymerase chain reaction. This technique has been designated DNA amplification fingerprinting daf.
