what is pcr
What Is PCR?
  • PCR is a method for amplifying DNA.
  • It requires the following components:
    • Primers---determine the sequence to be amplified
    • DNA Polymerase ---Taq polymerase, stable at high temperatures required by the reaction
    • Nucleotides
    • Ions, such as magnesium chloride
    • Target sequence (supplied by your cheek cells)

Conditions for Polymerase Chain Reaction to Detect D1S80 VNTR sequence

d1s80 vntr amplified by pcr
D1S80 VNTR amplified by PCR
  • VNTR= variable number of tandem repeats
  • D1S80
    • Found on Chromosome 1
    • Contains 16 nucleotide sequence repeated 16-40 times
    • Most individuals are heterozygous, having different numbers of repeats in each of their two D1S80 loci
isolation of cheek cell dna
Isolation of Cheek Cell DNA
  • Do ALL steps listed on the laboratory handout (p.14-15)
    • Collect cheek cells with cotton applicator. Transfer cells to PBS solution. Transfer solution to screw cap micro test tube. (1-4)
    • Spin micro test tube to collect PELLET, remove supernatant with pipette. (Steps 5-6)
    • Add 100 ul well-suspended chelating agent to PELLET and resuspend pellet. (steps 7-8)
isolation of cheek cell dna7
Isolation of Cheek Cell DNA
  • Do ALL steps listed on the laboratory handout (p.14-15)
    • Place micro test tube in boiling water bath for 10 minutes. (Step 9). Cool and mix (Step 10)
    • Spin micro test tube, remove SUPERNATANT (containing cheek cell DNA) with pipette. Transfer to clean tube labeled with your “class number” (Steps 11-12)
    • Keep DNA sample on ice. (Step 13)
setting up pcr reactions
Setting up PCR Reactions
  • Follow Directions on laboratory handout (p.16):
    • To a (very tiny!) tube with PCR bead, add 20 ul D1S80 primer/solution (step 2)

(Instructor will complete this step)

    • Add 5.0 ul of your cheek cell DNA to this tube(step 2), label with your “class number”
    • Mix and store this tube on ice prior to loading into the thermal cycler (step 6)
polymerase chain reaction
Polymerase Chain Reaction
  • Place your PCR tube in the Thermal Cycler
  • It is programmed for 32 cycles of 94oC, 65oC, 72oC for 30 seconds each.
  • After PCR, samples will be stored in the freezer until the next laboratory period.
gel electrophoresis
Gel Electrophoresis
  • Gel electrophoresis
    • Add 5 ul of 10x gel Loading solution to your sample. (Step 7, p. 16)
    • Incubate standard (prepared by your instructor) and PCR sample for 2 minutes at 50oC
    • Load entire volume of standard and sample
    • Each gel should have one lane of standard and 5 student samples (make drawing of order by class number)
gel electrophoresis11
Gel Electrophoresis
  • Gel electrophoresis
    • Run gel at 125 volts for 90 minutes or until tracking dye has traveled 4.5 cm
    • Bring gel to UV box for illumination and photography
    • Record your genotype for the D1S80 locus on spread sheet
dna standards for vntr insertion analysis
