Single stranded conformational polymorphism

single stranded conformational polymorphism

technique for detecting point mutations in genes by amplifying a region of genomic DNA (using asymmetric pCR) and running the resulting product on a high quality gel. Single base substitutions can alter the secondary structure of the fragment in the gel, producing a visible shift in its mobility.
