RT-PCR Conditions for a bunch of genes implicated in Bipolar Disorder


DAOA (D-amino acid oxidase activator, aka G72)

DISC1 (disrupted in schizophrenia 1)

NRG1 (neuregulin1)

DTNBP1 (dystrobrevin binding protein 1)

PALB2 (partner and localizer of BRCA2)

NDUFAB1 (NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone) 1, alpha/beta subcomplex, 1)

DCTN5 (dynactin 5)

Sense primer (F: 5’-GGTTAACTGAGAGGGGAGTGAA-3’)

Antisense primer (R: 5’- CCATAGTTGTGGATGACCTCTG-3’)

designed from the sequence conserved in cDNAs encoding human, mouse, rabbit, and pig D-amino-acid oxidases.
