Asuragen is the established leader in clinical research technologies for the investigation of high homology repeat disorders with proven market deployed kits for FMR1 and C9orf72 research. The AmplideX PCR/CE TOMM40 Kit (RUO) expands our portfolio of neurogenetics tests into the AD space to provide an easy-to-use, robust and reliable kit that offers single base resolution for the AT-rich region of the ‘523 polymorphism.

The assay PCR-amplifies the TOMM40 poly-T repeat region from purified genomic DNA followed by fragment sizing on an Applied Biosystems Genetic Analyzer. The size of the PCR products is converted to the number of poly-T repeats using mobility conversion factors.

Reduced Complexity | Simplified analysis of the TOMM40 gene

  • First-ever kitted and distributed solution
  • Easy-to-interpret results

Optimized Workflow | Streamlined, rapid and reliable workflow

  • Validated protocol ensures reproducible results
  • Minimal hands-on and turnaround time (Figure 1)

Quality Performance | Greater sensitivity and accuracy than currently available methods

  • 1 base pair resolution for poly-T sizing ensures accurate results at key genotypic boundaries
  • Reliable and accurate results every time

Analytical Characteristics

  • Reproducible: Can be used to reliably compare research results across institutions and cohorts (Figure 2)
  • Accurate: Single base pair resolution ensures accurate results at key genotypic boundaries associated with the age of onset in Late-Onset AD (LOAD) (Figure 3)
  • Flexible: Compatible with a wide range of DNA input, including low amounts of DNA (Figure 4)

Figure 2. A synthetic 48mer was accurately sized 8/8 times within 1 bp (7/8 = 48 Ts; 1/8 = 47 Ts)

Figure 3. Corriell sample NG09714 accurately sized and categorized by the kit: Size 29,30 Ts; Category: L/VL (Long/Very Long)

Figure 4. Amplification of 16,29 T alleles at DNA inputs ranging from 5 ng to 100 ng: Even at the lowest input, the peaks are clearly visible above the background signal
