Comments on protocol: Amplify region around the mutation. Cut with the enzyme BccI, which cuts the WT sequence but not the nessy sequence. We find that invitrogen platinum Pfx taq gives excellent amplification, and is compatible with the subsequent cutting reaction. We use excess primers and dNTPs. Typing is routinely done using a crude proteinase K ear lysis. We have used other primer sequences successfully, so primers can be modified. Please note that kleisin b has two very similar pseudogenes on chromosome 15. These need to be considered when designing primers. This is the major reason we have not used ms PCR.
