Use it or lose it? Researchers investigate the dispensability of our DNA

... forces at work. "With this in mind, we set out to examine the genomic data, much as someone would examine archaeological data, in search of similar deletion events that have happened naturally, and more importantly, were retained in the wild." "An analogy I like to entertain is that of plate tectonics: ...

While 2D6 genotyping is complex, the performance characteristics of the Invader technology, most notably its specificity, reduce or ...

SNPs Powerful Tools for Association Studies

... recessive, or sex-linked patterns. Mutation A change in the DNA sequence. A mutation can be a change from one base to another, a deletion of bases, or an addition of bases. Typically, the term mutation is used to refer to a disease-causing change, but technically any change, whether it ...

Direct Monitoring of Solid-Phase Peptide Synthesis by MALDI-TOF MS

... step would have been diagnosed. Figure 2 shows some of the minor peaks in the spectrum taken after step 13. Small amounts of deletion peptides are seen in addition to small peaks representing residual Pbf (Arg-protecting group). These are due to released Pbf attacking, for example, ...

Protein Truncation Tests Using the DCode System

... fact that no normal product is observed in this lane usually indicates a homozygous mutation. Sequencing of cDNA indicated a deletion of 174 bp, corresponding to the entire exon 26. Because this cDNA mutation would result in an in-frame deletion, the final ...

Rapid detection of genomic duplications and deletions using the Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer

... the DNA sequence is altered, (ii) changes of order e.g. translocations and inversions, and (iii) quantitative changes, involving the deletion or duplication of a stretch of DNA. Sequencing has long been the gold standard for qualitative changes, and fluorescent in situ hybridization ...

Cloning Based on Efficient Three-Fragment Assembly DNA Ligation

... of them were due to contamination resulting from incompletely cleaved and self-ligated phage DNA backbone. A relatively small proportion of deletion mutants and clones containing a doubled phage backbone was also found. The excellent performance of the ...

Fluorescence-Based Single-Tube Assays to Rapidly Detect Human Gene Mutations

... three single-tube assay kits, based on molecular beacon technology, to quickly detect three common human gene mutations: One is a three-base-pair deletion in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene, and the other two are single nucleotide substitutions in the coagulation ...

Production of Full-Length, Biologically Active MEK1WT and MEK1CA

... MEK activators. Substitution of the two phosphoacceptors (Ser-218 and Ser-222) in MEK1 WT with glutamic acid, in combination with an internal deletion (from amino acid 32 to amino acid 51), produced a mutant MEK that is more active than wild type. 4-6 This mutant, made by site-directed ...
