Rapid single nucleotide polymorphism analysis by primer extension and capillary electrophoresis using polyvinyl pyrrolidone matrix.

Rapid molecular diagnosis of 21-hydroxylase deficiency by detecting the most common mutation in the 21-hydroxylase gene is presented using primer extension and capillary electrophoresis with a polyvinyl pyrrolidone matrix. DNA samples were subjected to polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in order to amplify a 422 bp fragment of the CYP21 gene containing the… (More)
