20 Tests to Detect Unknown Mutations Used when a specific mutation has not been previously identified in a family DNA sequencing is most informative method Simpler scanning tests also may be used, usually followed by limited sequencing to characterize the specific mutation DNA Single Strand onformational Polymorphism (SSP) Normal Mutated DNA is denatured into single strands Single strands fold; shape is altered by mutations Mobility of mutant and normal strands differ in gel Gel mutation 20

21 Evaluating SSP Pros Rapid, simple, and widely available for many genes Detects 60% 95% of mutations in short DNA strands ons Subsequent DNA sequencing needed to characterize mutation Sensitivity drops with longer DNA sequences DNA Normal Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (DGGE) Mutated DNA denatured into single strands Single strands reanneal into normal and mutant homoduplexes and heteroduplexes Hetero- and homoduplexes denature at different points in gradient gel Denaturing gradient gel 21

22 Denaturing Gradient Gel BRA1 mutation carrier 1 normal homoduplex band 2 heteroduplex bands 1 mutant homoduplex band Evaluating DGGE Pros Highly sensitive (>90%) Better resolution than SSP ons Not efficient for analyzing large DNA fragments Subsequent DNA sequencing needed to characterize mutation Labor-intensive set-up 22

23 Heteroduplex Analysis (SGE) Amplify and denature DNA Single-strand DNA old Reannealed DNA Mutated bands Normal band Pros Evaluating Heteroduplex Analysis >90% sensitivity Rapid, simple assay Easily automated for high throughput use ons Subsequent sequencing needed to characterize mutation 23

24 Tests to Search for Known Mutations Used when a specific mutation is known or suspected to occur in a family Methods focus on detection of one or a few specific mutations (eg, Ashkenazi Jewish panel ) Methods include ASO, SGE, restriction site digestion, others Allele Specific Oligonucleotide (ASO) Hybridization Amplify DNA and hybridize to membranes Add radio-labeled normal DNA probes Add known mutant DNA probes Patients #1 #2 #3 #1 #2 #3 24

PR and gel electrophoresis essential for diagnostic tests. DNA polymorphisms are best defined by frequency. Screening for DNA sequence differences is performed by direct sequencing or other techniques that are selected based on whether the mutation is known or unknown. Introduction to gene transfer provides a framework for learning about gene therapy and methods for recombinant drug development. 27
