Summary for Patent: 5,876,927
Title: Nucleic acid diagnostic assay for Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B
Abstract:The present invention provides compositions, methods and kits for the detection of genetic polymorphisms or mutations related to Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B. The polymorphism or mutations generally occur in the protein P0 gene in chromosome 1. Also provided are mutant forms of protein P0 and methods for screening compounds to identify compounds that enhance binding between mutant P0 proteins.

Application Number:08/091,336
Patent Litigation and PTAB cases: See patent lawsuits and PTAB cases for patent 5,876,927
Patent Claims:1. A method for detecting the presence of a genetic polymorphism or associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B in a sample of patient nucleic acid, comprising:

amplifying a myelin protein zero (protein P0) gene subsequence in the patient nucleic acid to produce an amplification product; and

identifying the presence of a Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B associated polymorphism in the amplification product.

2. A method as in claim 1, wherein the sample of patient nucleic acid comprises chromosomal DNA.

3. A method as in claim 2, wherein the chromosomal DNA is chromosome 1.

4. A method as in claim 1, further comprising digesting the amplification product with a restriction enzyme to produce restriction fragments.

5. A method as in claim 4, wherein the restriction enzyme is BstBI.

6. A method as in claim 4, further comprising separating the restriction fragments by gel electrophoresis.

7. A method as in claim 1, wherein the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B polymorphism is identified by sequencing the amplification product.

8. A method as in claim 7, further comprising digesting the amplification product with a restriction enzyme and identifying the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B polymorphism is identified by sequencing a restriction fragment.

9. A method as in claim 8, wherein the restriction enzyme is BstBI.

10. A method as in claim 1, wherein the amplification is performed by polymerase chain reaction.

11. A method as in claim 1, wherein the protein P0 subsequence is an exon.

12. A method as in claim 11, wherein the exon is exon 3 of the human myelin protein zero gene.

13. A method as in claim 1, wherein the human myelin protein zero subsequence is an intron.

14. A method as in claim 10, wherein the polymerase chain reaction is performed in the presence of a pair of primers, wherein the first primer is

and the second primer is

15. A method as in claim 10, wherein the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B polymorphism is identified by the migration pattern of the restriction fragments on the gel.

16. A method as in claim 15, wherein the gel electrophoresis is polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.

17. A method for detecting the presence of a genetic polymorphism or associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B in a sample of patient nucleic acid, comprising:

employing polymerase chain reaction to amplify a subsequence of a myelin protein zero (protein P0) gene of the patient nucleic acid to produce an amplification product;

digesting the amplification product with a restriction enzyme to produce restriction fragments;

separating the restriction fragments with polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis; and

identifying separated restriction fragments containing the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B associated polymorphism.

18. A method as in claim 17, wherein the restriction enzyme is BstBI.

19. A method as in claim 17, wherein the polymerase chain reaction is performed in the presence of SEQ ID NO:1 and SEQ ID NO:2.

20. A method as in claim 17, further comprising determining the nucleic acid base sequence of restriction fragments containing the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1B polymorphism.
