Hello,

I would appreciate if you can share your experience.

My MS-HRM PCR signal comes out very late, between 35 and 40th cycle. Otherwise looks fine, but it still doesn't feel right.

I have used 10-35ng bisulfite converted DNA, primers diluted to final concentration 0,3-0,75microM, all combinations. My products are about 150bp long.

I really don't have any idea, what to try further. Same thing happens with purchased bisulfite converted methylated DNA (Qiagen).

Did anyone have similar problems?

Regards,

lmg

Ok, I have finally found answer to my problem. Ghm, this late amplification is actually normal when using bisulfite converted DNA in MS-HRM. I have realised this when read through a bunch of articles, where they recommend 50-60 PCR cycles... Sometimes the answer is just in front of our nose...

;-)

Have a nice weekend,

Hi,

First of all your primer concentration must be 10 micromolar...

master mix=10
primer F:2 or 3
primer R:2 or 3
MgCl= if you put primer 2microL put mgcl=2, if you put primers 3 microL put the MgCl=2,5
H2O=1
DNA=10microM for 10ng

Try it
