A method for homogeneous color-compensated genotyping of factor V (G1691A) and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (C677T) mutations using real-time multiplex fluorescence PCR.


OBJECTIVES To set up an optimized multiplex polymerase chain reaction for real-time genotyping of the prothrombotic risk factors methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T and factor V Leiden on the LightCycler. DESIGN AND METHODS Novel primer and probe sets were designed on the basis of thermodynamic double-strand DNA stability calculations. Detection… (More)
