Priklad ANTISENSE delivery
Using PCR to Detect for HIV RT-PCR (reverse transcriptase PCR). HIV has a ssRNA genome. Lyse plasma cells from the potentially infected person to release HIV RNA genome. The RNA is precipitated using isopropanol. Reverse transciptase is used to make a cDNA copy of the RNA of the virus. This cDNA is used as a template to make dsDNA.
RT-PCR Diagnosis of HIV
Using PCR to Detect for HIV Specific primers are used to amplify a 156 bp portion of the HIV gag gene. Using standards the amount of PCR product can be used to determine the viral load. PCR can also be used as a prognostic tool to determine viral load. This method can also be used to determine the effectiveness antiviral therapy.
