FIELD: biochemistry.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to biochemistry. Described is kit for DNA detection of bovine immunodeficiency provirus (BIV (bovine immunodeficiency virus)), containing pair of specific primers and DNA-probe, by PCR in real time. Primers and probe have following nucleotide composition (5′-3′-): pf - TAGGGTAGTGGGATCTCAGAAATC, pr - ACATCCGTAACATCTCCTACCATC, z - GAGGATGGTAGGAGATGTTACGGAT. Source of fluorescence at 5′ end of the probe used is dye ROX and fluorescence quenching fluorescence on 3′ end of BHQ2. Also described is diagnostic technique for BIV by PCR in real time using kit according to claim. 1. Reaction mixture is prepared by mixing buffer 10-fold for PCR - 2.5 mql, dNTP (25 mM) is 0.2 mql, pf and pr primers (10 pmol/mql) by 1 mql, probe z (10 pmol/mql) is 0.5 mql, Taq polymerase (5 units/mql) is 0.2 mql, MgCl2 (50 mM) is 2 mql, bidistilled water is 7.6 mql, and amplification is carried out as follows: denaturation 95°C is 5 minutes, cycling: denaturation (95°C - 20 s) - annealing (55°C - 20 s) - elongation (72 C - 20 s), wherein cycle of denaturation-annealing-elongation is repeated 10 times, cycling 2 with detection: denaturation (95°C - 20 s)-annealing (55°C - 20 s)-elongation (72°C - 20 s), wherein cycle denaturation-annealing-elongation is repeated 25 or 30 times. Fluorescence is measured over a Orange channel at temperature of 55°C. Intersection of fluorescence curve line threshold, set at level of 30% of maximum level of fluorescence in last cycle amplification testifies to provirus BIV presence in sample, at that, the less value of “Ct” indicator, the higher amount of provirus BIV in analysed sample, while absence of intersection of fluorescence curve line threshold testifies to absence of provirus BIV in sample.

EFFECT: invention can be used in scientific research for detecting genetic material BIV in animal blood lymphocytes by PCR in real time.

SUBSTANCE: inventions relate to the field of DNA-genealogy and deal with a method of determining haplogroups of human Y-chromosomes, a test-system and oligonucleotide primers. The characterised method is realised in two stages. At the first stage genetic typing is carried out by basic haplogroups R,N,J,I,Q,C,E,D,G,O of an Y-chromosome tree by multiplex PCR with the application of specific oligonucleotide primers of the first and second sets of the test-system. At the second stage, if mutation is detected, additional multiplex PCR for typing by subhaplogroups is carried out. If at the first stage mutation is not detected, multiplex PCR for typing by rare haplogroups A,C3,F,H,K,L,O3 and T is carried out. The area of annealing primers outside mutation zones within the limits of species specificity corresponds to sequences from the first set of the test-system. The area of annealing of the oligonucleotide primers, directly adjoining the mutation zone within the limits of species specificity corresponds to sequences from the second set of the test-system.

EFFECT: inventions can be applied for the determination of haplogroups of the human Y-chromosome.
