Sources of DNA are numerous and may be genomic, mitochondrial, recombinant, or microbial. For clinical testing, DNA is usually isolated from the nuclei or mitochondria of fresh, frozen, or formalin-ﬁxed parafﬁn-embedded tissue specimens; peripheral blood, bone marrow, body ﬂuids, genital tract, or ﬁne needle biopsy specimens; buccal cells; or microorganisms that may be present in any of these types of specimens. Leukocytes in blood are a common source of DNA for molecular testing. Formalinﬁxed specimens are generally suitable for PCR; however, the DNA is partially fragmented because of protein cross-linking to DNA, which can be problematic for some assays.
Other inhibitors that have been reported are heme, iron, immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, bile salts, calcium chloride, phenol, polyamines, calcium alginate, sodium polyanetholesulfonate, and eumelanins. Incomplete removal of ethanol from the nucleic acid wash steps during the extraction can also inhibit the PCR ampliﬁcation. Together with failure of the internal control or housekeeping gene control to PCR amplify, inhibition can be identiﬁed by the successful ampliﬁcation of these controls upon repeat PCR testing after the DNA sample has CHAPTER 4 41 Conventional and Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction been diluted to decrease the concentration of a potential inhibitor.
The vertical picture shows a cartoon image of the completed separation of an agarose gel. Fluorescence of the ethidium bromide dye identiﬁes the positions of the PCR amplicons in the gel. The lane on the right shows the bands from the molecular weight marker (MWM) or DNA ladder for sizing the PCR product. The expected 130 base-pair size of the PCR product sits between the 100 and the 200 base-pair bands of the DNA ladder. matrix or used in a solution to stain the gel after electrophoresis. Ethidium bromide molecules are planar and therefore intercalate between the bases of doublestranded DNA.
