Protocol 31856: Probe Assay - Generic HPRT Probe
Version 1.0


This assay cannot distinguish hemi from hom


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=  70 bp

IPC = 74 bp
