24 DNA amplification Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR 1 Several modified PCR 2

25 1. PCR Introduction : The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a biomedical technology in molecular biology used to amplify a single copy or a few copies of a piece of DNA across several orders of magnitude, generating thousands to millions of copies of a particular DNA sequence.

26 PCR


28 DNA template: This is the DNA from which you amplify your fragment of interest. Primers: A pair of short single-stranded oligonucleotides that are identical to the 5’-end of the sense and anti-sense strands that will be amplified. Taq DNA polymerase: was isolated from the bacterium Thermus aquaticus, is stable at high temperatures, which means it is stable under the extreme temperature condition of PCR. dNTP: Just like in all other DNA sequencing reactions, the nucleotide building blocks must be present. PCR Components of PCR






34 PCR PCR efficiency Amplification decrease with increase in length Too long primer decrease efficiency. Annealing temp, play imp (higher than ideal reduces effi). Primer sequence: if primers have complementary regions, dimers will be formed and effi. Will go down. Sequence of target: GC rich will form 2ndary str. And hair-pin loop will be formed. Addtion of BSA enhance eff. By protecting DNA polymerase and by binding to PCR inhibitor. Certain inhibitors also affects the efficiency

35 Diagnodsis of genetic disorders. The genetic identification of samples such as hair, sperm, blood stain involved in criminal cases, maternal/paternal disputes, rape cases etc. Analysis of homologous genes in evolutionary biology. DNA polymorphism. Gene transfer detection. Location of gene. Genmerate ssDNA for sequencing. Formation of cDNA from mNRA. PCR General Application

36 PCR Advantages of PCR Large amount of amplification from small amount of DNA is possible. Nanogram (ng) amounts of DNA can be generated from a single template molecule. Technique is quick and simple. Technique is very sensitive. The biggest advantage is that the DNA need not be in pure form. Cheap. Versatile. Large number of modifications possible. Large number of modifications possible.

37 PCR Limitation of PCR Nucleotide sequence of boundary region must be known. Error rate has to be checked by proper conditions.. As PCR is very sensitive technique, it may generate false signals due to previous contamination. Sequence upto 3kb is possible...Ideal for < 1kb. Amplicon size is very important. There are several differences between PCR and gene cloning. Amplification is upto 30 cycles..If you increase cycle, errors in annealing and amplification.

38 2. Several modified PCR Real-time PCR Multiplex PCR Touchdown PCR Nested PCR Anchored PCR Inverse PCR Hot start PCR Asymmetric PCR Assembly PCR Reverse transcription PCR RACE- PCR …………………

39 PCR Real-time PCR Concept : A real-time polymerase chain reaction is a laboratory technique of molecular biology based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which is used to amplify and simultaneously detect or quantify a targeted DNA molecule.

40 Real time quantitative PCR uses fluorophores in order to detect levels of gene expression

41 PCR Inverse PCR Concept : Inverse polymerase chain reaction (Inverse PCR) is a variant of the polymerase chain reaction that is used to amplify DNA with only one known sequence.

42 Limitation : One limitation of conventional PCR is that it requires primers complementary to both termini of the target DNA, but this method allows PCR to be carried out even if only one sequence is available from which primers may be designed. PCR Inverse PCR


44 PCR Concept : Multiplex polymerase chain reaction (Multiplex PCR) is a modification of polymerase chain reaction in order to rapidly detect deletions or duplications in a large gene. Multiplex PCR Multiplex-PCR consists of multiple primer sets within a single PCR mixture to produce amplicons of varying sizes that are specific to different DNA sequences.amplicons

45 1. Pathogen Identification 2. High Throughput SNP Genotyping 3. Mutation Analysis 4. Gene Deletion Analysis 5. Template Quantitation 6. Linkage Analysis 7. RNA Detection 8. Forensic Studies 9. Diet Analysis PCR Applications : Multiplex PCR

46 PCR Reverse transcription PCR Concept : Reverse transcription PCR is used to clone expressed genes by reverse transcribing the RNA of interest into its complementary DNA (cDNA) through the use of reverse transcriptase.

47 Protocol of Reverse Transcription- Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) In the one-step protocol, the components of RT and PCR are mixed in a single tube at the same time. The one-step protocol generally works well for amplifying targets that are reasonably abundant. Alternatively, RT-PCR can be done in two steps, first with the reverse transcription and then the PCR. The two-step protocol is usually more sensitive than the one-step method; yields of rare targets may be improved by using the two-step procedure. We recommend the two-step protocol for this class.

48 TD-PCR employs an initial annealing temperature above the projected melting temperature (T(m)) of the primers being used, then progressively transitions to a lower, more permissive annealing temperature over the course of successive cycles. Any difference in T(m) between correct and incorrect annealing will produce an exponential advantage of twofold per cycle. PCR Touchdown PCR

49 Concept : The hot start PCR is a modified form of Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) which avoids a non-specific amplification of DNA by inactivating the taq polymerase at lower temperature. PCR Hot start PCR

50 Principle : In this dsDNA is denatured by heating the sample at its denaturing temperature and then the temperature is suddenly reduced to 55 ℃ at which primer and Taq-polymerase is added, but here the difference arises i.e. specific antibodies are used to block this Taq-polymerase at annealing temperature. PCR Hot start PCR

51 Concept : Nested polymerase chain reaction (Nested PCR) is a modification of polymerase chain reaction intended to reduce non-specific binding in products due to the amplification of unexpected primer binding sites. PCR Nested PCR


53 Preferentially amplifies one DNA strand in a double-stranded DNA template. It is used in sequencing and hybridization probing where amplification of only one of the two complementary strands is required. PCR Asymmetric PCR


55 Concept : Assembly PCR is a method for the assembly of large DNA oligonucleotides from shorter fragments. PCR Assembly PCR


57 Concept : Anchored PCR is a technique used in molecular biology to obtain the full length sequence of an RNA transcript found within a cell. PCR Anchored PCR
