Аннотация: Several polymorphisms in the melanocortin-1 receptor gene (MC1R) have been associated with melanoma risk. In particular, rs1805007, rs1805008, and rs1805009 mutations, which result in R151C, R160W, and D294H amino acid substitutions, respectively, and are associated with the phenotype of red-hair mutations, have also been connected with melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancer risks. This work describes a method of detecting these polymorphisms using primer extension with subsequent dual bioluminescent assay. Model plasmids carrying polymorphic MC1R fragments, as well as several clinical DNA samples, were tested using the proposed technique. The results agreed well with those obtained by Sanger sequencing.
