Denaturing high performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC) is generating increasing interest in clinical genetics as a reliable tool for the analysis of genetic alterations. In the work presented here our intentions were to optimize primer design and DHPLC analysis conditions for a qualitative detection of BRCA1 and BRCA2 variations. The BRCA1 and BRAC2 genes display a high proportion of polymorphisms. Sequencing efforts geared towards the distinction of tumor-related mutations and benign… CONTINUE READING
