PCR with different primer combinations
• Genomic DNAs were used as templates to amplify different regions of DNA including the taste SNP
1. Product size: 510bp [gaF + Gfb(R)]
2. Product size: 510bp [gaF + Cfb(R)]
3. Product size: 522bp [Gff(F) + gaR]
4. Product size: 522bp [Cff(F) + gaR]
5. Product size: 235bp [Cfb(F) + Gfb(R)]
6. Product size: 235bp [Cfb(F) + Cfb(R)]
7. Product size: 161bp [Gff(F) + Cff(R)]
8. Product size: 161bp [Cff(F) + Cff(R)]
• [gaF+Gfb(R) and gaF+Cfb(R)] : Allele specific reverse primers showed bands with the corresponding templates just above 500bp.
• [Gff(F)+gaR and Cff(F)+gaR] : Allele specific forward primer produced an expected specific band only with non-taster template but not with the taster one. Rather a thick bright band was seen at 100bp with taster template.
• [Cfb(F)+Gfb(R) and Cfb(F)+Cfb(R)] : Allele specific reverse primers also worked with a different forward primer producing shorter bands (235bp)
• [Gff(F)+Cff(R) and Cff(F)+Cff(R)] : Allele specific forward primers produced similar bands with both templates and were unable to distinguish between the two.
• Allele specific reverse primers when combined with a non-specific common forward primer are able to differentiate the SNPs.
• There might have been pipetting error for different results seen with allele specific forward primers or they might not be the right primers to differentiate the taste SNPs.
