Predictive ability of DHPLC profiles. Identical profiles were observed at the predicted oven temperature for both a 1009 C>T substitution (A) and a 965 G to A substitution (B) in exon 6 of the hMSH2 gene. These profiles were different to those obtained for a 984 C to T substitution (C) and no substitutions (D) in the same fragment. PCR products (5 μl) were separated on a Helix DHPLC column under partially denaturing conditions using a flow rate of 0.45 ml/min and an increasing linear acetonitrile gradient.
