Title: Genotyping of human cytomegalovirus using non-radioactive single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis
Author: de Albuquerque, DM
Costa, SCB
Abstract: Genetic variation in the glycoprotein B (gB) gene may play a role in human cytomegaloviruses (HCMVs) pathogenesis. Using restriction analysis of the gB gene product (PCR-RFLP), amplified by the nested polymerase chain reaction, the HCMV strains can be compared and classified into at least four HCMV groups. PCR single-strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) is one of the techniques used to identify a mutant sequence or a polymorphism in a known gene. SSCP analysis has the advantage over RFLP analysis on detection of DNA polymorphisms and point mutations at a variety of positions in DNA fragments. However, the original SSCP protocols using the incorporation of radioactive label and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis for detection are labour intensive and time-consuming. A simplified SSCP protocol is described to identify HCMV strains and the gB genotype, allowing the detection of sequence variations not residing in the endonuclease recognition sites.
