single-stranded conformational polymorphism


single-stranded conformational polymorphism
(= SSCP)
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.
