What makes dominant allele dominant?

... in binding of miRNAs. On the protein level, there are several options, you can have premature STOP codon and the resulting peptide is too short to do its work. Or you can have change of a crucial residue to turn off your protein, like in case of Asp to Asn mutations in receptor which impair ...

Annealing Temparature

The primers obviously contain added restriction sites and the matching part is quite short. I would anneal the first cycle at 50°C and the rest at 65°C. Denaturation for 10s will be enough, but a bit higher temperature 95-98°C might be better. Elongation depends on ...
