LABORATORY PROCEDURES FOR ANIMAL & HUMAN CELL LINES

REFERENCE NO: AHC/1998/3/3.4/1.1


TITLE: PCR ANALYSIS FOR HIV


HIV DNA sequences integrated into the cellular genome (proviruses) are detected using the PCR amplification. DNAs from cell lines are extracted using proteinase K digestion followed by standard organic extractions. Specific oligonucleotide pairs from the gag region of HIV-1 (SK 38 and SK 39) (1) are used in a hot start PCR reaction. After 30 cycles at 95 C for 1 min, 55 C for 1 min and 72 C for 1 min the amplified products are identified by agarose gel electrophoresis and visualized by ethidium bromide intercalation.
