Detection of SNPs of T2DM susceptibility genes by a ligase detection reaction–fluorescent nanosphere technique

To establish a high throughput, low cost, and simple nanotechnology-based method for the detection of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Methods Multiplex ligase detection reaction (LDR) amplification was performed using fluorescently labeled magnetic nanosphere-bound upstream LDR probes and downstream probes labeled with a unique fluorescent group for each SNP locus. The amplified LDR products were separated by magnetic nanospheres and then scanned by fluorescence spectroscopy. Four SNP loci associated with T2DM were detected, including the rs13866634 locus in SLC30A8, rs10811661in CDKN2A/2B, rs1111875 in the HHEX gene, and rs7903146 in the TCF7L2 gene. The SNP genotype was also determined by DNA sequencing as a control. Results The SNP genotypes of the four gene loci determined by the nanosphere-based multiplex LDR method were consistent with the DNA sequencing results. The accuracy rate was 100%. Conclusion A method based on multiplex PCR and LDR was established for simultaneous detection of four SNP loci of T2DM susceptibility genes.
