PROTOCOL TYPE:
Protocol Document
SYNOPSIS:

These protocols describe the process to genotype for the RaDR transgene in mouse ear punches. RaDR mice were developed in the Engelward lab at MIT, and they allow detection of sequence rearrangement mutations arising from aberrant homologous recombination in situ. Please see the paper below for more information on RaDR.

The first protocol describes a quick tissue lysate procedure and the PCR recipe utilizes the commercial Platinum Supermix.

The second protocol in the document describes a tissue digestion procedure that yields purified DNA, and it provides a PCR recipe using individual ingredients that may be more cost-effective.
