From: Molecular identification of Clonorchis sinensis and discrimination with other opisthorchid liver fluke species using multiple Ligation-depended Probe Amplification (MLPA)

Figure 1

Outline of the MLPA technique () After hybridisation to their target sequence in the sample DNA, the probe oligonucleotides are enzymatically ligated. One probe oligonucleotide contains a non-hybridising stuffer sequence of variable length. Ligation products can be amplified using PCR primer sequences X and Y amplification product of each probe has a unique length (130-480 nt). Amplification products are separated by electrophoresis.
