Mixing of samples with each other instead of with a wild-type sample was feasible because of the scarcity of homozygous mutated STGD patients [<3% in our population (4)], which makes the probability of mixing two samples homozygous for the same mutation low enough to be negligible.
Additionally, DHPLC profiling singled out the presence of the mutations D108V (323A>T) in exon 4, V767D (2300T>A) in exon 15 (7), R2030Q (6089G>A) in exon 44 (8), and 6817-1G>A and a 3329-25G>A polymorphism in five STGD patients that DG-DGGE had failed to detect.
In fact, retrospective DHPLC analysis of samples from 23 STGD patients not only detected all sequence variations previously identified by DG-DGGE but also revealed five additional changes that DG-DGGE had missed.
