  1. MLH1 UF and MLH1 R concurrently amplify deaminated and undeaminated MLH1 promoter. MLH1 DF and MLH1 R amplify deaminated MLH1. MLH1 UDF and MLH1 UDR amplify undeaminated MLH1 promoter. A common molecular beacon (MLH1 beacon) was used for detection of the 3 products. RASSF1A MF and RASSF1A MR amplify methylated RASSF1A. RASSF1A UMF and RASSF1A UMR amplify unmethylated RASSF1A. Methylated and unmethylated products were detected by RASSF1A M beacon and RASSF1A UM beacon, respectively. MEST MF and MEST MR amplify methylated MEST, whereas MEST UMF and MEST UMR amplify unmethylated MEST. Methylated and unmethylated products were detected by MEST M beacon and MEST UM beacon, respectively. To ensure high specificity the probes designed to discriminate between methylated and unmethylated products contain LNA nucleotides at positions marked with +.
