PCR Human Papillomavirus Detection Set
This primer set is designed for detecting human papillomavirus (HPV), specifically viral DNA of HPV16, 18, and 33. These HPV types have all been detected in cervical carcinoma. Included in this set are specific amplification primers for the E6 region of HPV16, 18, and 33, and control templates. Amplification product sizes are 140 bp for HPV16 and 18, and 141 bp for HPV33. HPV type-specific probes for subsequent hybridization are also provided. The PCR Human Papillomavirus Detection Set works very efficiently when used in conjunction with TaKaRa Taq DNA Polymerase.
- Human papillomavirus (HPV) detection
- HPV PCR
The PCR Human Papillomavirus Detection Set includes three control templates to verify the presence of PCR-amplified DNA fragments. Amplification reactions using control templates HPVT16, HPVT18, and HPVT33, and primer pairs HPVpF/HPVp16R, HPVpF/HPVp18R and HPVpF/HPVp33R, respectively, yield 70-bp DNA fragments. Because the control templates contain sequences complementary to the probes provided in the PCR Human Papillomavirus Detection Set, they can be used as positive controls for each HPV type via dot hybridization.
