Detection method: allelic discrimination, real-time PCR

The kit is intended for detection of mutation G1691A (Leiden) in coagulation factor V in human genomic DNA. Detection is based on real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) using fluorescently labelled probes (allelic discrimination).

Clinical implications

Coagulation factor V is a plasmatic glycoprotein involved in the process of blood coagulation. In its activated form, factor V participates in the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin which contributes to the creation of blood clots. Mutation G1691A (so-called Leiden mutation) causes replacement of amino acid arginine by glycine in the position 506 of the factor V protein chain.

The frequency of the Leiden mutation in the healthy European population ranges between 3–5 %, whereas in patients who suffer from thromboembolic events (TEN) this frequency is about 20–40 %. The risk of venous thrombosis increases 3–10× in patients with heterozygote genotype and 20–80× in mutated homozygotes.

gb Easy PCR Master Mix consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP and MgCl2. 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.
