A total of 301 colorectal carcinoma (CRC) archival samples were analysed using the amplification-refractory mutation system (ARMS). Each sample was examined to determine the mutation status of codons 12 and 13 of the K-ras oncogene. The results from direct DNA sequence analysis carried out on 30 of the samples differed from the ARMS result in almost 50% of(More)
We have developed a novel double Amplification Refractory Mutation System (double ARMS) using a highly polymorphic region 5' to the human delta-globin gene as a model system. The double ARMS approach involves using two allele-specific ARMS primers simultaneously during DNA amplification by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The resulting system is highly(More)
