Analysis of a p53 mutation associated with cancer susceptibility for biochemistry and genetic laboratory courses.

Abstract

We have devised and implemented a module for an upper division undergraduate laboratory based on the amplification and analysis of a p53 polymorphism associated with cancer susceptibility. First, students collected a drop of peripheral blood cells using a sterile sting and then used FTA cards to extract the genomic DNA. The p53 region is then PCR amplified… (More)
