X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) is an inherited disorder characterized by axonopathy and demyelination in the central nervous system and adrenal insufficiency. Main X-ALD phenotypes are: (i) an adult adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) with axonopathy in spinal cords, (ii) cerebral AMN with brain demyelination (cAMN) and (iii) a childhood variant, cALD,(More)
Genomic technologies have the potential to greatly increase the efficiency of the drug development process. As part of our tuberculosis drug discovery program, we used DNA microarray technology to profile drug-induced effects in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Expression profiles of M. tuberculosis treated with compounds that inhibit key metabolic pathways are(More)
This paper uses cytotoxic and proliferative T cell clones specific for H-Y and restricted by MHC molecules to type mice and humans inheriting incomplete portions of the Y chromosome. The data have allowed us to map the H-Y antigen gene Hya in mouse to a position closely linked with, but separable from, Tdy on the Sxr fragment and thus presumably to a(More)
