In practice, VNTR loci for evaluation are selected based on having highly conserved flanking sequences; a large number of repeat number sizes seen across the population of interest (in other words, high allelic diversity); and good amplification behavior (reliable amplification of true loci across a wide range of input concentrations, few or no spurious amplification products).
We used VNTR typing, targeted gene sequencing, and core-genome SNV analysis to compare M.
Special repeat numbers of three loci (MIRU-4, VNTR 1955, and MIRU 39) were discovered [Table 1].
For the amplification of PAH VNTR marker, a set of primers including 5'-GCTTGAAACTTGAAAGTTGC-3' (as forward primer) and 5'-GGAAACTTAAGAATCCCATC-3' (as reverse primer) were used.
DNA repair genes polymorphisms in multiple myeloma: no association with XRCCl (Arg399Gln) polymorphism, but the XRCC4 (VNTR in intron 3 and G-1394T) and XPD (Lys75lGln) polymorphisms is associated with the disease in Turkish patients.
Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a relationship between IL-1Ra VNTR variant and BD risk in a Turkish cohort.
IL-1RN (VNTR) and IL-10 (-511C/T) Polymorphism and HIV-Infected Individuals with Hepatotoxicity.
Estos estudios han permitido identificar polimorfismos (SNP y VNTR) localizados en la region codificadora y reguladora de genes candidatos, ubicados principalmente en las vias dopaminergica y serotoninergica, que se asocian con este trastorno (9,12,17,23,24).
Besides, for mini haplotype analysis, the regions of VNTR and STR were amplified with labeled primers which were obtained from Goltsov et al's studies (8,9).
