A new method of using molecular genetics for medical diagnosis. Fingerprinting genomes using PCR with arbitrary primers.

The use of long, dual primer PCR requires that there be extensive preexisting knowledge of the target sequences. This technique has been designated DNA amplification fingerprinting daf.

DNA amplification fingerprinting: Another diagnostic tool?

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The high sensitivity and specificity of properly targeted long chain primer pairs and the great variety of specimens amenable to PCR analysis, including nonculturable specimens such as paraffin embedded tissues, has generated numerous diagnostic applications 4.


The polymerase chain reaction: DNA amplification fingerprinting using very short arbitrary oligonucleotide primers. There is not such a requirement for daf. Welsh J, McClelland M.

DNA amplification fingerprinting using arbitrary oligonucleotide primers.

LCDC has begun the analysis of certain pseudomonads using this technology and we will shortly fingdrprinting reporting on its efficacy in our hands. Fast and sensitive silver staining of DNA in polyacrylamide fingerrprinting. DNA diagnostics — Molecular techniques and automation.

Another genetic approach has recently been suggested by two groups 56 in which PCR amplification of DNA polymorphisms was directed by single small primers only eight to 10 nucleotides in length.

DNA amplification fingerprinting using arbitrary oligonucleotide primers.

Particularly important are the specialized silver staining method 8 required for resolution of small, as opposed to large, amplicons, and the primer concentrations required for effective priming. U se of the polymerase chain reaction pcramplification of targeted nucleotide sequences as a means of vaf microorganisms for diagnostic and epidemiologic purposes 12has initiated a transformation in laboratory based approaches to infectious disease diagnosis and fingefprinting the subject of an earlier LCDC report 3.

N Engl J Med.

DNA polymorphism amplified by arbitrary primers are useful as genetic markers. Until then it would seem reasonable to predict that daf technology will provide high versatility while retaining the selectivity and sensitivity of long, dual primer PCR and will shortly be part of the diagnostic trade of clinical microbiologists.


Multiple priming sites on each DNA strand are amplified efficiently by short primers under relaxed conditions and the number of amplicons reproducibly obtained in daf is largely dependent on the short primer sequence rather than length, provided the number exceeds four 5 — 7.

There appears to be some particular advantages to daf compared to the more traditional PCR approach. An overview and development of diagnostic eaf at the LCDC. Following polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis pagethese demonstrate an array of amplicons dns yield a banding fingerprint that is characteristic for each combination of short primer and DNA source.

The conditions required for effective long chain, dual primer PCR are considerably more stringent with respect to hybridization and enzymatic conditions than for daf.
