Primate genetics: CYP2C76 PCR test for macaques

primate genetic test data sheet

Genotyping of cynomolgus macaque DNA by PCR fragment analysis

Test code:
GP102 - This assay identifies genetic origin of a cynomolgus macaque sample by microsatellite marker analysis. It uses five Macaca fascicularis genomic markers to determine the relatedness of two animals, or to attribute a sample to a source animal.

Cynomolgus macaques (Macaca fascicularis) are valuable animal models for linkage studies of genetic diseases. Colony management of these nonhuman primates therefore requires careful characterization of the genetic relationships among them. Microsatellite markers are often used to assist in colony management, conservation work, and paternity testing of nonhuman primates (Raveendrana et al., 2006).

Microsatellites are short tandem nucleotide repeats (STR) of 2-6 nucleotides, most commonly a repeating CA pattern, usually occurring in non-coding parts of the genome. They are abundantly present in the genomes of almost all organisms, and are highly variable in number of repeats. Since these markers are inherited in Mendelian fashion, they are especially suitable for linkage analysis because of the high degree of polymorphism among individual animals.

Utilities:

  • Identify paternity relationship between two cynomolgus macaques
  • Linkage analysis for inherited disease management
  • Colony management of inbreeding

Specimen requirement: 0.2 ml whole blood in EDTA (purple top) or ACD (yellow top) tube, or buccal swab, or 0.2 ml fresh, frozen or fixed tissue.

For specimen types other than those listed here, please call to confirm specimen acceptability and shipping instructions.

For all specimen types, if there will be a delay in shipping, or during very warm weather, refrigerate specimens until shipped and ship with a cold pack unless more stringent shipping requirements are specified. Frozen specimens should be shipped so as to remain frozen in transit. See shipping instructions for more information.

Turnaround time: 5 business days
