Methyl-CpG-Binding PCR of Bloodspots for Confirmation of Fragile X Syndrome in Males
Detection sensitivity of MB-PCR. (a) MB-PCR analysis using different amounts of input DNA, cycle numbers of the PCR amplification, and NaCl concentration in the stringency washes. (b) MB-PCR analysis of the DNA samples simulated as mosaic FXS by mixing 0.5 ng of DNA sample from an FXS male with varying amounts of DNA sample from a non-FXS male. (–): Control DNA with universally unmethylated sequences; (+): control DNA with universally methylated sequences; (M): molecular-size markers.
