Detection method: allelic discrimination, real-time PCR

The kit is intended for detection of C807T mutation in GPIa gene in human genomic DNA. Detection is based on realtime polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) using fluorescently labelled probes (allelic discrimination).

Clinical implications

Platelet glycoprotein GPIa forms a complex GPIa/IIa with glycoprotein GPIIa on the surface of blood platelets. One-nucleotide C807T mutation is one of the “silent” polymorphisms that do not change the amino acid sequence. However, the presence of the mutated form increases the gene expression.

Both, heterozygous and homozygous carriers of the mutated allele, have twice as many receptors on the platelet surface as compared to the wild type homozygotes, which causes an increased thrombocyte adhesivity to type 1 collagen. Under high shear stress in the arterial bed, increased thrombocyte adhesivity has thrombogenic potential. Both, heterozygous and homozygous carriage of the mutated allele, is considered to be a mild risk factor of myocardial infarction and stroke in younger people.

gb SG PCR Master Mix consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP, MgCl2, sybrgreen and additives that prevent PCR inhibition. 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.
