gb GENETIC Gilbert

Detection method: melting analysis

This in vitro diagnostic kit is intended for detection of polymorphism TA (allele 7TA) in gene UGT1A1 in human genomic DNA. Detection is based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with analysis of melting curves using fluorescently labelled probe.

Clinical implications of the CE IVD kit

The gb GENETIC Gilbert diagnostic kit is used to detect changes in the number of TA repetitions in the promoter of the UGT1A1 gene. This gene encodes the enzyme UDPglucuronosyltransferase, which is responsible for the conjugation phase of biotransformation of bilirubin.

The unmutated gene variant contains 6 TA repeats in the promoter, the mutated variant most frequently 7 TA repeats. Detection of this mutation is useful before starting treatment with medications whose limited biotransformation can result in development of toxic effects. Genotyping enables timely dose reduction or selection of alternative therapy.

gb Easy PCR Master Mix consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP and MgCl2. The Taq polymerase is chemically modified DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus. This polymerase is completely inactive at room temperature but it is rapidly activated during the initial denaturation step of PCR. The product falls into a group of TaqMan Real-Time PCR Master Mixes to provide probe-based qPCR.

Background Probiotics are defined as live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. For instance, probiotics can be used in the treatment and prevention of infections and chronic inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Due to their health attributes, probiotics generate considerable interest in the area of functional
