Example text

Sequencing primers are designed to be within a few bases of the targeted mutation, and hybridize to the ssDNA in presence of the enzymes DNA polymerase, ATP sulfurylase, luciferase, and apyrase and substrates adenosine 5’phosphate and luciferin. Light is produced only when the correct complementary nucleotide bases are incorporated onto the template. This incorporation releases pyrophosphate (PPi) stoichiometrically. The adenosine triphosphate (ATP) sulfurylase quantitatively converts PPi to ATP, which in turn acts as an energy donor of the luciferase-mediated conversion of luciferin to oxyluciferin.

In principle, this combines real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) followed by a slow melt analysis. Probes covering a mutation of interest are included with PCR. Hybridization assays first were described using fluorescent resonance energy transfer (FRET). The most commonly used chemistry is dual adjacent hybridization probes, each labeled with a single fluorophore. One probe is designed to hybridize to the region of the mutation or variant and is referred to as the mutation probe or detection probe.

However, poor metabolizers were excluded from this study, and therefore applicability to warfarin dosing has not been established. Measurement of circulating vitamin K levels might also be useful in determining the amount of drug necessary to inhibit VKORC1. Although circulating vitamin K levels might yield some information regarding anticoagulation, the intracellular concentration of vitamin K relative to the amount of VKORC1 (and the amount of warfarin) would seem to be the more important measure.
