I have a good PCR products with a good sensitivity with this T.D.PCR cycle.....
95c - 6mins
67c-1min - 3 cycles
67c-1min - 8cycles (reducing cycle, 1c decreament in each cycle, so it reaches 60c)
67c-1min - 29 cycles (normal)
My question here is, I'm running the PCR again with a high annealing temperature of 67c, usually in a T.D PCR it should be the lowest temp that was achieved in the decreamenting cycle, which would be 60c in my case. On the contrary, if I do the same samples with the final 29 cycles with annealing temperature at 60c, I have less sensitivity. My samples are dilutions of PURE DNA. Say for example, I get product formed up to 10^6 in the previously modified T.D. PCR cycle, but in the regular T.D.PCR cycle, I was able to get only 10^4.
Would some one explain this T.D.PCR phenomena.....
