Nested PCR for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex targeting IS6110 gene. Further Nested PCR was performed on the DNA template isolated from various specimens. This test is based on the principles of single-tube nested PCR method, which is a powerful and sensitive diagnostic tool for the identification of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis complex. This assay is a two-step sequential assay. In the first step, the Insertion sequence region of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex DNA sequence, a 220 bp is amplified by specific external primers. In the second step, the nested primers are added to further amplify a 123 bp amplification product. In this assay, false positive reactions that may be caused by previous amplicon contamination are prevented by the use of uracil DNA glycosylase (UDG) and dUTP instead of dTTP added in the premix [11, 12]. Nested PCR. An amplimer of size 123 bp is indicative of infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. The amplification product of internal control DNA is 340 bp which is used for the validation of the results (as depicted in…show more content…
