The use of DNA amplification fingerprinting (DAF) as a tool for monitoring mixed microbial populations in bioreactors was evaluated. Short (8-mer or mer). PDF | DNA amplification fingerprinting (DAF) is a strategy for genetic typing and mapping that uses one or more very short (≥5 nt) arbitrary oligonucleotides to.

U se of the polymerase chain reaction pcramplification of targeted nucleotide sequences as a means of identifying microorganisms for diagnostic and epidemiologic purposes 12 amplificatoin, has initiated a transformation in laboratory based approaches to infectious disease diagnosis and was the subject of an earlier LCDC report 3.

This technique has been designated DNA amplification fingerprinting dnx. DNA polymorphism amplified by arbitrary primers are useful as genetic markers. Reiss J, Cooper DN.

The use of long, dual primer PCR requires that there be extensive preexisting knowledge of the target sequences. Please review our privacy policy. Fingerprinting genomes using PCR with arbitrary primers. The polymerase chain reaction.


DNA amplification fingerprinting: Another diagnostic tool?

Another genetic approach has recently been suggested by two groups 56 in which PCR amplification of DNA polymorphisms was directed by single small primers only eight to finherprinting nucleotides in length. A new method of using molecular genetics for medical diagnosis. DNA diagnostics — Molecular techniques and automation. The high sensitivity and specificity of properly targeted long chain primer pairs and the great variety of specimens amenable to Amp,ification analysis, including nonculturable specimens such as paraffin embedded tissues, has generated numerous diagnostic applications 4.

The conditions required for effective long chain, dual primer PCR are considerably more stringent with respect to hybridization and enzymatic conditions than for daf.

LCDC has begun the analysis of certain pseudomonads using this technology and we will shortly be reporting on its efficacy in our hands.

DNA amplification fingerprinting using arbitrary oligonucleotide primers.

N Engl J Med. Particularly important are the ampljfication silver staining method 8 required for resolution of small, as opposed to large, amplicons, and the primer concentrations required for effective priming. Until then it would seem reasonable to predict that daf technology will provide high versatility while retaining the selectivity and sensitivity of long, dual primer PCR and will shortly be part of the diagnostic trade of clinical microbiologists.


Following polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis pagethese demonstrate an array of amplicons that yield a banding fingerprint that is characteristic for each combination of short primer and DNA source.

DNA amplification fingerprinting: Another diagnostic tool?

DNA amplification fingerprinting using very short arbitrary oligonucleotide primers. Welsh J, McClelland M. There appears to be some particular advantages to daf compared to the more traditional PCR approach. An overview and development of diagnostic protocols at the LCDC.

Can J Infect Dis. The polymerase chain reaction: Fast and sensitive silver staining of DNA in polyacrylamide gels.

Multiple priming sites on each DNA strand are amplified fingeerprinting by short primers under relaxed conditions and the number of amplicons reproducibly obtained in daf is largely dependent on the short primer sequence rather than length, provided the number exceeds four 5 — 7.
