Hi everyone, I'm a lowly undergrad doing research underneath a Professor. Could someone help me out and tell me where I am going wrong? The professor told me she would always reply in a timely manner but this can mean anywhere from an hour to a day, and time is money friends!

I went to genome browser and looked specifically for the Mouse Gene TNFSF10, and copied the refseq into word. I then found the beginning primer at 1 to 263 nucleotides. I found the next exon, the reverse primer, at 8905-9043. So, I took the refseq into ncbi's primer blast tool. The settings of importance I think I should mention are: 2GC clamp (I require either 2 or 3 of these in primers) and primer must span exon-exon junction.

I'm also looking for primers with no more than 200 nucleotides in length, so unless if I misunderstood something which is very likely, how do I make it so my reverse primer isn't so big?

Thank you, and sorry for this mess.

Try this option.

Go to the primer design tool that you have found. Put RefSeq (NM_009425) accession for TNFSF10 in accession box. For the initial try just hit Get Primers button after selecting "show results in a new window" option. Once you take a look at the results (that may take 5 mins or so) go back and change any parameters you want to experiment with.

I see a couple of primer pairs in the default results that span exons but depends on what you are looking for.

Hi there, I did it like this but when I started messing with exon-exon junction spanning I got the same problem I was originally with.
