A simple procedure for manufacturing microchips containing various gel-immobilized compounds is described. A gel photopolymerization technique is introduced to produce micromatrices of polyacrylamide gel pads (25 x 25 x 20 microm and larger) separated by a hydrophobic glass surface. A pin device for the manual application of a compound in solution onto the(More)
Patterns of histone binding to DNA of transcriptionally active D. melanogaster hsp70 genes within the nuclei have been analyzed by two methods of histone-DNA chemical cross-linking. When cross-linking is restricted to the central, "globular" regions of histones, it drops most for H1, to an intermediate extent for H2A and H2B, and least for H3 and H4 in(More)
A nucleosomal core particle is composed of two each of histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 located inside the particle with approximately 47 base pairs (bp) of DNA wrapped around the octamer in about 1.8 turns of a left-handed superhelix. The path of the superhelix is not smooth; the DNA is sharply bent, or kinked, at positions symmetrically disposed at a distance(More)
Several procedures have been described for fluorescent labeling of DNA and RNA. They are based on the introduction of aldehyde groups by partial depurination of DNA or oxidation of the 3'-terminal ribonucleoside in RNA by sodium periodate. Fluorescent labels with an attached hydrazine group are efficiently coupled with the aldehyde groups and the hydrazone(More)
Activated DNA was immobilized in aldehyde-containing polyacrylamide gel for use in manufacturing the MAGIChip (microarrays of gel-immobilized compounds on a chip). First, abasic sites were generated in DNA by partial acidic depurination. Amino groups were then introduced into the abasic sites by reaction with ethylenediamine and reduction of the aldimine(More)
The human mu opioid receptor (MOR) plays a central role in mediating the effects of opi-oids, both endogenous and exogenous. Epidemiological studies have shown that addiction in general, and especially opiate addiction, has a heritable component. Clinical and laboratory studies suggest that the MOR gene may contribute to the heritable component of(More)
The presence of histones in hsp 70 genes was studied by "protein-image" hybridization technique after crosslinking histones to DNA. With increasing transcription of the genes, the coding region was demonstrated to be depleted first of H1 and then of all histones. This probably accounts for unraveling the 25 nm silent chromatin fiber to moderately and(More)
The binding of lactose repressor to non-operator DNA was studied by the modification of several DNA's, including glycosylated DNA, with dimethyl sulphate, which affects the minor and major grooves of DNA and single stranded DNA regions. The non-specific binding of the repressor to DNA protected the minor groove but apparently not the major groove of the DNA(More)
