Protocol 25802: Standard PCR Assay - D2Mit259
Version 1.2

Notes

THIS STRAIN NEEDS TO BE TYPED FOR TWO MIT MARKERS.

FML Buffer: 500 mM KCl, 100 mM Tris HCl pH 8.3, 15 mM MgCl2, 0.01% Gelatin

Add 42 µl of loading buffer (12% ficoll 400, 0.2% bromophenol blue, 0.04 M EDTA) diluted 1:4 with TEN (10 mM Tris pH 8.0, 1 mM EDTA pH 8.0, 10 mM NaCl) to PCR reaction. Load 5 µl  on the gel. PCR products are separated on 3.5 % MetaPhor agarose gel with 0.5 x SYBR Green I Nucleic Acid Stain.
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.

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.
