Method Detail
Submitter Method Handle: KRIBB_YJKIM
Submitter Method ID: AFFYMETRIX
Submitted method description:
The Mapping 500K Array Set is comprised of two arrays, each capable of genotyping on average 250,000 SNPs.
One array uses the Nsp I restriction enzyme (~262,000 SNPs), while the second uses Sty I (~238,000 SNPs).
Total genomic DNA (250 ng) is digested with a restriction enzyme (Nsp I or Sty I) and ligated to adaptors that recognize the cohesive four base-pair(bp) overhangs.
All fragments resulting from restriction enzyme digestion, regardless of size, are substrates for adaptor ligation.
A generic primer that recognizes the adaptor sequence is used to amplify adaptor-ligated DNA fragments.
PCR conditions have been optimized to preferentially amplify fragments in the 200 to 1,100 bp size range.
The amplified DNA is then fragmented, labeled, and hybridize to a GeneChip Human Mapping 250K Array.
Each consisting of more than one milion copies of a 25-bp oligonucleotide probe of a defined sequence.
Two reagent kits were developed and validated for use in conjunction with the Mapping 500K Array Set.
One kit is specific to the Nsp I restriction enzyme while the other is designed for the Sty I restriction enzyme.
Both kits contain validated and qualified reagents for the most critical steps in the GeneChip Mapping Array.
This includes the PCR primer and adaptor necessary to selectively amplify a portion of the human genome, reagents to fragment and label the PCR product, and several control reagents.
Kits are available for either 30 or 100 reactions.
