  1. 1. Padlock probes : Circularizing oligonucleotides for localized detection of DNA sequence variants

    Author : Mats Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Medical Genetics; medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Present techniques for localized detection of DNA sequence variants have limitations due to problems with sensitivity, specificity, signal localization or ability to perform many analyses simultaneously.In this study a novel gene analytic reagent is presented - the padlock probe.

  2. 2. Padlock Probes and Rolling Circle Amplification : New Possibilities for Sensitive Gene Detection

    Author : Maritha Mendel-Hartvig; Pål Nyrén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Padlock probes; RCR; in situ hybridization; branched DNA; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Medical Genetics; medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : A series of novel methods for detection of known sequence variants in DNA, in particular single nucleotide polymorphism, using padlock probes and rolling circle replication are presented. DNA probes that can be circularized – padlock probes – are ideal for rolling circle replication. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic Analyses using Rolling Circle or PCR Amplified Padlock Probes

    Author : Johan Banér; Sanjay Tyagi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Molecular medicine; Padlock probes; rolling circle amplification; PCR; genotyping; microarray; expression analysis; Molekylärmedicin; Molecular medicine genetics and pathology ; Molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; Medical Genetics; medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Padlock probes are useful in a variety of genetic applications, some of which require that the probes are amplified in order to generate detectable signals. Two general padlock amplification methods, RCA and PCR, are discussed in this thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genotyping RNA and DNA using padlock probes

    Author : Dan-Oscar Antson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Padlock probe; enzymatic synthesis; PCR; in situ hybridization; RNA-templated DNA ligation; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Medical Genetics; medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Novel techniques are needed to investigate the genetic variation revealed in the first draft of the human genome sequence. Padlock probes are recently developed reagents, suitable for detecting single-nucleotide variations of DNA and RNA in situ or in solution. READ MORE

  5. 5. Padlock Probe-Based Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests : Point-of-care Diagnostics of Infectious Diseases

    Author : Sibel Ciftci; Mats Nilsson; Jonas Klingström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nucleic Acid Amplification; Isothermal Amplification Methods; Padlock Probes; Rolling Circle Amplification; Molecular Diagnostics; Infectious Disease Diagnostics; Virus; Point-of-Care; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Recent advancements in molecular biology and biotechnology have pushed the field of molecular diagnostics much further to benefit the society towards smart access for rapid and simplified health care. In this context, point-of-care (PoC) technologies that bring the inventions in diagnostics closer to bedside settings draw attention. READ MORE
