Telomere Length Analysis (qPCR assay)

Telomeres represent the nucleotide repeat sequences at the ends of chromosomes and are important for chromosome stability. They can shorten at each round of DNA replication mainly because of incomplete DNA synthesis of the lagging strand. Reduced relative telomere length is associated with aging and a range of disease states.

Creative Bioarray employs qPCR assay to measure absolute telomere length, which is a simple and reproducible method. The primers, conceived to create a brief, fixed-length product, can attach only one fluorescent group to each amplicon produced in the experiment, distinguishably different from the mentioned SYBR green-based methods. We achieve this by using our distinctive primers for both telomeric repeat amplification and the amplification of a single-copy gene reference sequence. Consequently, this leads to elongated linear ranges for our calibration curves used in this technique and a more precise length determination for shorter telomeres.
