High-throughput genotyping of repeat polymorphism in the regulatory region of serotonin transporter gene by gel microchip electrophoresis.

Large-scale genotyping of the repeat polymorphism in the regulatory region of the serotonin transporter gene (5-HTTLPR) was attempted by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification followed by gel microchip electrophoresis analysis. The multilane (96) format of the gel microchip system allowed parallel separation of a large number of samples. The separation and visualization of the PCR amplicons from either the 5-HTTLPR short allele (number of repeats are 14) or the 5-HTTLPR long form (16 repeats) was completed in a few minutes. Genotyping of healthy Caucasian individuals showed that the short allele had a somewhat lower frequency (0.42) than the long form (0.58), and the genotype frequencies fulfilled the criteria of the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (chi = 0.012, p = 0.994). Based on these results, gel microchip electrophoresis system proved to be a powerful tool for high throughput genotyping of repeat polymorphism.[1]
