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.
Mutant = 350 bp and 180 bp
Heterozygote = 180 bp, 350 bp and 530 bp
Wild type = 530 bp
