Chapter 4. Figure 6. Effect of dNTP variation on qPCR. Low, medium, and high dNTP concentrations are shown. In this case, low dNTP concentrations (0.12 mM each dNTP, green) result in earlier Cqs (probably because of more magnesium availability). Medium dNTP concentrations (0.20 mM each dNTP, red) cause slightly delayed Cq values but also slightly higher end fluorescence. High dNTP concentrations (0.28 mM each dNTP, blue) fail to amplify, presumably due to lack of magnesium availability. Total Mg2+ concentration is 2mM final.
