Protocol 32244: QPCR Assay - GCaMP6f-QPCR
Version 1.0


This assay can distinguish hemi from hom

 This assay can distinguish GCaMP6f from GCaMP6s and GCaMP3

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

Tg=  95 bp

IPC = 74 bp
