Protocol 22102: Probe Assay - Fluorescent Proteins (Generic GFP)
Version 6.0

Notes

Melting curve analysis is done using a Roche Light Cycler 480.

This assay will NOT distinguish hemizygous from homozygous transgenic animals.

This protocol can also be used for YFP.

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

Transgene = 92
IPC = 74 bp

 

The Jackson Laboratory designed this protocol using GFP sequence, however, we have found that it can be used to genotype for other fluorescence proteins. It is possible that mismatches in the primer sequences may make data interpretation challenging for other fluorescence proteins.
