A 267 base pair region encompassing nt 1,691 of FV was PCR-amplified using a primer pair originally described by Bertina and collegues with a 5'sense primer of sequence 5' TGCCCAGTGTTAAACAAGACCA 3' (primer PR-6967, nt 1,581 to 1,602, exon 10) and a 3' antisense primer of sequence 5' TGTTATCACACTGGTGCTAA- 3' (primer pr-990, nt (-)146 to (-) 127, intron 10).

I know that the factor v leiden mutation is at the 1,691 location, so where do the primers go, and what is (-) 146 to (-) 127? Does that mean the forward primer starts at 127 to 146 and the reverse at 1581 to 1602?
