This technique has been designated DNA amplification fingerprinting daf. 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.

DNA amplification fingerprinting: Another diagnostic tool?

Reiss J, Ampllification DN. The conditions required for effective long chain, dual primer PCR are considerably more stringent with respect to hybridization and enzymatic conditions than for daf.

DNA amplification fingerprinting: Another diagnostic tool?

An overview and development of diagnostic protocols at the LCDC. There appears to be some particular advantages to daf compared to the ampliffication traditional PCR approach.

Application of the polymerase chain reaction to the diagnosis of human genetic disease. The high sensitivity and specificity of properly targeted long chain primer pairs and the great variety of specimens amenable xmplification PCR analysis, including nonculturable specimens such as paraffin embedded tissues, has generated numerous diagnostic applications 4.

Fast and sensitive silver staining of DNA in polyacrylamide gels. Can J Infect Dis. Fingerprinting genomes using PCR with arbitrary primers.

A new method of using molecular genetics for medical diagnosis. 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.

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. 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 in laboratory based approaches to infectious disease diagnosis and was the subject of an earlier LCDC report 3.


DNA amplification fingerprinting using very short arbitrary oligonucleotide primers. Welsh J, McClelland M.

Please review our privacy policy. The use of long, amplofication primer PCR requires that there be extensive preexisting knowledge of the target sequences. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. 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.

N Engl J Med. The polymerase chain reaction: LCDC has begun the analysis of certain pseudomonads using fingerorinting technology and we will shortly be reporting on its efficacy in our hands.

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.

There is not such a requirement for daf. The polymerase chain reaction.
