Construction of a multiplex allele-specific PCR-based universal array (ASPUA) and its application to hearing loss screening.

We demonstrate a new method, using a universal array approach termed multiplex allele-specific PCR-based universal array (ASPUA), and applied it to the mutation detection of hereditary hearing loss. Mutations in many different genes may be the cause of hereditary hearing loss, a sensory defect disorder. Effective methods for genetic diagnosis are clearly… CONTINUE READING
