Fabrication and Application of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms Library on Magnetic Nanoparticles Using Adaptor PCR
Abstract:We have developed a novel approach to fabricate single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) library on magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) based on adaptor PCR. Each SNP locus in the library was interrogated by hybridization with a pair of allele specific dual-color fluorescence (Cy3, Cy5) probes to determine SNP. Two SNPs loci (M235T and A-6G) associated with essential hypertension in the angiotensinogen (AGT) gene were detected by this method and their fluorescent signals were quantified. The fluorescent ratios (match probe: mismatch probe signal) of homozygous genotypes were over 3.0, whereas heterozygous genotypes had ratios near to 1.0. Without any complex multiplex PCR procedure, it is a simple, efficient and reliable method for the multiplex SNPs detection using limited amount of DNA samples from individuals.
