The PCR kit is designed to detect C677T mutation in the gene for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) by the real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). The method is based on amplification and detection of the target sequence using allele specific fluorophore labelled probes. The target sequence is the single nucleotide cytosine/thymine polymorphism in site 677 (C677T). Presence of wild-type allele (C677C) is detected in the FAM fluorescent channel and mutant allele (T677T) in the HEX fluorescent channel. In case of heterozygous genotype (C677T) a signal is detected in both channels. Detection kit contains Ready to Use MasterMix and takes advantage of the “hot start” technology, minimizing non-specific reactions and assuring maximum sensitivity. Kit is designed for in vitro diagnostic.
