Analysis of methionine synthase (rs1805087) gene polymorphism in autism patients in Northern Iran

this study was to analyze the association of MTR A2756G gene polymorphism (rs1805087) and the risk of autism in a population in northern Iran. The prevalence of MTR A2756G polymorphism was determined in 108 children with autism and 130 controls in northern Iran. Genotypes and allele frequencies were determined in patients and controls by polymerase chain reaction‑restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR‑RFLP). The prevalence of genotype frequencies of AA, AG and GG in autistic children were

In the majority of studies with humans the rs6295 G allele association with threat sensitivity has been shown in clinical or preclinical samples, but the effects are not always clear in studies with the general population (Chipman et al., 2010). However, it is important that data is also collected from neurotypical population subjects to develop early genotyping tests of potential vulnerability. This is obvious from the perspective of

ABO genotyping by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism

Genotyping enables the identification of both maternally and paternally derived alleles. A number of protocols have been described for the genotyping of the ABO blood group system. Generally, these methods have a number of disadvantages including the use of hazardous reagents, being technically demanding, and the excessive use of materials. In this study, a relatively simple polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method is described. Four different

Use of Amplification Fragment Length Polymorphism to Genotype Pseudomonas stutzeri Strains Following Exposure to Ultraviolet Light A

Changes in ultraviolet light radiation can act as a selective force on the genetic and physiological traits of a microbial community. Two strains of the common soil bacterium Pseudomonas stutzeri, isolated from aquifer cores and from human spinal fluid were exposed to ultraviolet light. Amplification length polymorphism analysis (AFLP) was used to genotype this bacterial species and evaluate the effect of UVA-exposure on genomic DNA extracted from 18 survival colonies of the two strains

DNA analysis for donor screening of Dombrock blood group antigens

Due to the scarcity of reliable antibodies, RBC typing for Doa and Dob is notoriously difficult. Inaccurate typing can place patients at risk for hemolytic transfusion reactions. The molecular basis of the DOA/DOB polymorphism is associated with three nucleotide changes:378 C>T,624 T>C, and 793 A>G of DO. While the 378 C>T and 624 T>C are silent mutations, the 793A>G polymorphism in codon 265 encodes asparagine for Doa and aspartic acid for Dob . We describe here the use of a

The O2 allele: questioning the phenotypic definition of an ABO allele

There are three main alleles in the ABO blood group system, A, B, and O.  The former two alleles encode glycosyltransferases resulting in the wild-type A and B phenotypes, whereas the latter allele does not encode a functional enzyme owing to a frameshift polymorphism in the majority of cases.  Thus the group O phenotype is the absence of A or B sugars.  More than 15 years ago the O2 allele was described; this allele did not feature the usual crippling 261delG polymorphism, which

There is a genetically controlled expression of E-CR1 that can be detected by Southern blot or polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment-length polymorphism methods.

Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification assay for blood group genotyping, copy number quantification, and analysis of  RH variants

The blood group multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) is a comprehensive assay, developed for genotyping the majority of clinically relevant blood group antigens in both patients and donors. The MLPA is an easy method to apply and only requires a thermal cycler and capillary electrophoresis equipment. Because the molecular basis of blood group antigens can be a single nucleotide polymorphism, an insertion/deletion polymorphism, or genetic recombination, a single assay such as

High-resolution melting analysis as an alternative method for human neutrophil antigen genotyping

Human neutrophil antigen (HNA)-typed granulocyte panels are widely used to screen for the presence of HNA antibodies and to determine antibody specificity. Many laboratories screen donors for HNA genotypes using low-throughput methods such as allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR), PCR–restriction fragment–length polymorphism, and multiplex PCR. In the present study, we used a high-resolution melting (HRM) analysis to determine HNA genotypes. For the HRM analysis, purified

Based on these results, and an absence of a record of this change in the Single Nucleotide Polymorphism database, Glu425 in the Lu glycoprotein is required for expression of Lu7, and Ala425 is associated with the LU:–7 phenotype.

Comparison of ABO genotyping methods: a study of two low-resolution polymerase chain reaction assays in a clinical testing laboratory

peripheral blood were used as a source of genomic DNA (QIAamp DSP; QIAGEN, Valencia, CA). Genomic DNA was polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified and analyzed using two research-use-only genotyping methods: TaqMan-based sequence-specific primer (SSP)-PCR and PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP). SSP-PCR using RBC-FluoGene ABO Basic test kit was performed as per manufacturer’s instructions (inno-train Diagnostik, Kronberg, Germany). The RBC-FluoGene ABO Basic test kit interrogates ABO c
