This research is aimed to establish a DPO-PCR method for rapid detection of wheat component in foods. A pair of highly specific DPO primers was designed using the wheat housekeeping gene GAG56D as the target gene. By optimizing the PCR reaction system, the DPO-PCR detection method for wheat component in food was established, and the specificity and sensitivity of the method were determined. The established DPO-PCR method was highly specific, and there was no cross-reactivity to 22 control samples. The sensitivity was high, and the minimum detection limit was 1 ng/uL. Tests on commercially available product samples showed that the method can effectively detect wheat component of foods. The DPO-PCR method established in this study is simple and accurate, and provides an effective detection method for wheat component in foods.

In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.
Methods for using more than one primer set in a polymerase chain reaction to amplify more than one segment of the target DNA sequence in a single reaction.
Methods used for detecting the amplified DNA products from the polymerase chain reaction as they accumulate instead of at the end of the reaction.
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques used in the diagnosis of disease. Included are such techniques as IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION of chromosomes for CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS; OLIGONUCLEOTIDE ARRAY SEQUENCE ANALYSIS of gene expression patterns in disease states; identification of pathogenic organisms by analysis of species specific DNA sequences; and detection of mutations with POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION.
