qBiomarker Somatic Mutation PCR Array: Human Tyrosine Kinases and Cell Signaling Pathways Panel 384HT
The Human Tyrosine Kinases and Cell Signaling Pathways Panel qBiomarker Somatic Mutation PCR Array is a translational research tool that allows rapid, comprehensive, and accurate profiling of the somatic mutation status of 34 key genes in tyrosine kinases and cell signaling pathways. Genes covered on this panel are among the most frequently mutated in major signaling pathways (including tyrosine kinase signaling) and therefore warrant extensive investigation to enhance the understanding of carcinogenesis and identify potential drug targets. Numerous research studies have demonstrated the utility of individual and multiple somatic mutation status information in identifying key signaling transduction disruptions. For example, the mutation status of the EGFR and KRAS genes can predict the physiological response to certain drugs targeting these molecules. The Human Tyrosine Kinases and Cell Signaling Pathways Panel qBiomarker Somatic Mutation PCR Array, with its comprehensive content coverage, is designed for the study of mutations in all major signaling pathways and has the potential for discovery and verification of drug target biomarkers for a variety of human cancers. This array includes 348 DNA sequence mutation assays designed to detect the most frequent, functionally verified, and biologically significant mutations in genes involved in tyrosine kinase signaling and other major signaling pathways. These mutations were chosen from curated, comprehensive somatic mutation databases and peer-reviewed scientific literature. The simplicity of the product format and operating procedure allows routine somatic mutation profiling in any research laboratory with access to real-time PCR instruments. Researchers with interest in in-depth mutation analysis for a specific pathway or disease are encouraged to explore relevant pathway- or disease-specific somatic mutation PCR arrays. Additional mutation assays (not included in this array) for the majority of the genes are also available.

Overview of the qBiomarker Somatic Mutation PCR Array / Assay Protocol

Overview of the qBiomarker Somatic Mutation PCR Array / Assay Protocol.
The procedure involves DNA extraction (QIAGEN QIAamp DNA Mini Kit or FFPE Tissue Kit is recommended), an optional amplification (QIAGEN REPLI-g kit or REPLI-g UltraFast kit is recommended) step for DNA isolated from fresh samples, qPCR detection on qBiomarker Somatic Mutation PCR Arrays or Assays, and data analysis (using the qBiomarker Somatic Mutation Data Analysis Template). An optional DNA sample QC step immediately before the detection array or assay setup allows the user to qualify the DNA samples.
