Protocol 31758: Standard PCR Assay - Tg(Nes-cre)1Kln-Chr12
Version 1.0

Notes

The genotyping protocol(s) presented here have been optimized for reagents and conditions used by The Jackson Laboratory (JAX). To genotype animals, JAX recommends researchers validate the assay independently upon receipt of animals into their facility. Reaction cycling temperature and times may require additional optimization based on the specific genotyping reagents used.

Expected Results

Mutant = 150 bp
Heterozygote = 150 bp and 246 bp
Wild type = 246 bp

This assay is capable of distinguishing hemi from hom.  Transgene integration site is known to be on mouse Chr 12.
This assay is NOT able to be used for transgene copy number evaluation.  If this is required, it is suggested to type by qPCR.

JAX uses a very high speed Taq (~1000 bp/sec), use cycling times recommended for your reagents.
JAX uses a 'touchdown' cycling protocol and therefore has not calculated the optimal annealing temperature for each set of primers.
