Primer-directed enzymatic amplification of DNA with a thermostable DNA polymerase.
A thermostable DNA polymerase was used in an in vitro DNA amplification procedure, the polymerase chain reaction, which significantly improves the specificity, yield, sensitivity, and length of products that can be amplified. Expand
Enzymatic amplification of beta-globin genomic sequences and restriction site analysis for diagnosis of sickle cell anemia.
Two new methods were used to establish a rapid and highly sensitive prenatal diagnostic test for sickle cell anemia. The first involves the primer-mediated enzymatic amplification of specificExpand
Specific enzymatic amplification of DNA in vitro: the polymerase chain reaction.
An alternative method for the synthesis of specific DNA sequences is explored that involves the reciprocal interaction of two oligonucleotides and the DNA polymerase extension products whose synthesis they prime, when they are hybridized to different strands of a DNA template in a relative orientation such that their extension products overlap.

Enzymatic amplification of ?-globin genomic sequences and restriction site analysis for diagnosis of
ExoSAP-IT offers quick, one step PCR clean-up with 100% recovery of both short and long PCR products, and is completely scaleable for manual or automated use. Expand
Genome-wide association study and meta-analysis find that over 40 loci affect risk of type 1 diabetes
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a common autoimmune disorder that arises from the action of multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. We report the findings of a genome-wide association study of T1D,Expand

In addition to its many applications in basic molecular biological research, PCR promises to play a critical role in the identification of medically important sequences as well as an important diagnostic one in their detection. Expand
Generation of single-stranded DNA by the polymerase chain reaction and its application to direct sequencing of the HLA-DQA locus.
This work has studied the allelic diversity at the HLA-DQA locus and its association with the serologically defined Hla-DR and -DQ types and revealed eight alleles and three additional haplotypes. Expand
Influence of combinations of human major histocompatibility complex genes on the course of HIV–1 infection
An HLA profile was produced that predicted time from HIV–1 infection to the onset of AIDS and support current theory about control of antigen processing by HLA genes and have implications for immunopathogenesis of HIV-1 and other infections. Expand
PCR Technology: Principles and Applications for DNA Amplification
This introductory guide covers the basic methodology, research applications, and medical applications of PCR technology, emphasizing the practical aspects of the technique. Every chapter is writtenExpand
Recent advances in the polymerase chain reaction
Progresses ranging from the identification of novel genes and pathogens to the quantitation of characterized nucleotide sequences and some recent developments in instrumentation, methodology, and applications of the PCR are presented. Expand
