A method is described for HPV genotyping based on multiplex competitive hybridization (MUCH) combined with apyrase mediated allele-specific extension (AMASE). Two type-specific oligonucleotides were designed for each of the 23 investigated HPV types and directed towards two highly inter-type heterogeneous regions. The type-specific oligonucleotides were allowed to compete in the hybridization to an immobilized template resulting in a highly specific hybridization process. To increase further the specificity, a second step of type discrimination was used in which specific extension of 3'-termini matched oligonucleotides was performed. The 46 type-specific oligonucleotides each had a unique tag sequence to allow detection via an array of oligonucleotides complementary to the tags. To evaluate the genotyping assay, a total of 92 HPV positive samples were tested in this study. Twelve had double infections and five had three to five coexisting HPV types. The results show that MUCH-AMASE can readily detect multiple infections, whereas conventional dideoxy sequencing resulted in ambiguous sequence. Four samples with three to five genotypes detected were cloned and individual clones were sequenced. The cloning procedure verified the MUCH-AMASE results with indications that we can find minor infections (< 2% relative amounts). We can thus conclude that the developed assay is highly sensitive, with improved throughput and with excellent possibility to detect multiple infections.
