TLC of the solid (dissolved in water, eluted with a 70: 40: 10 by volume mixture of ethyl acetate-acetone-water and visualized by UV) showed uracil as a major component (Shyamaprosad et al, 2007)
The insertion of uracil derivatives in the micellar interior with their chromophores located at micelle- solvent interface absorb more light due to increase in local concentration.
In vitro removal of uracil bases from FFPE DNA using UDG before PCR amplification markedly reduces the artifactual C:G>T:A SNVs (40).
Fourth, the extra step required for capillary electrophoresis also increases the risk of contamination, which is minimized when using the qPCR assay because it is a closed-tube assay, and with uracil N-glycosylase technology, the possibility of cross-contamination is essentially eliminated.

The amplified product was purified by PCR purification kit following manufacturer's instructions (Qiagen, Germany) and cloned first in the TA cloning vector pTZ57R (Fermantas) followed by subcloning in the yeast shuttle expression vector pGal426 that contains the galactose inducible promoter Gall and uracil synthesizing gene (ura3) as selection marker (12,13).
