Allele Specific PCR and Multiplex PCR

  • A PCR using 4 primers (@ outer and 2 inner primers) was performed
  • Forward inner primer ends in G and reverse inner primer ends in C
  • Expected band sizes for taster: 992bp and 510bp
  • Expected band sizes for taster: 992bp and 522bp




• No bands are seen at 992bp which tells that amplification with the outer primers was not successful

• Faint bands are seen at about 500bp in both the taster and the non-taster

• As observed in previous PCRs, a thick bright band is seen below 100bp. But there is also another band at approximately 150bp.


• Since the expected products are of similar lengths, this PCR is unable to distinguish between the two variants and other set of primers could be used
