Table 5 Comparison of genotypes identified by SSCP and pyrosequencing

From: Detection of three closely located single nucleotide polymorphisms in the EAAT2 promoter: comparison of single-strand conformational polymorphism (SSCP), pyrosequencing and Sanger sequencing

  1. For the SSCP EAAT2F and EAAT2R primers were used and pyrosequencing was done with EAAT2PyroSeq1 primer (Figure 1 and Table 1). The genotypes that were correctly identified by both methods are indicated in bold. The genotype numbers indicated under pyrosequencing corresponds to those used in Table 2.
