Congenital malformations are contributing greatly to the perinatal morbidity and mortality of the infant of the diabetic mother. Can we discover the cause or causes of these lesions? Can they be prevented? Are they consistently detecable? The answers to these questions will significantly benefit all pregnancies as well as those complicated by diabetes(More)
The Fis protein of Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium stimulates several site-specific DNA recombination reactions, as well as transcription of a number of genes. Fis binds to a 15-bp core recognition sequence and induces DNA bending. Mutations in Fis which alter its ability to bend DNA have been shown to reduce the stimulatory activity of Fis in(More)
Site-specific recombination reactions involve the joining or rearrangement of discrete DNA segments in a highly precise manner. A site-specific DNA inversion regulates the expression of flagellin genes in Salmonella by switching the orientation of a promoter. Analysis of the reaction has shown that, in addition to DNA sequences at the two boundaries of the(More)
ABCB1 (adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette transporter B1) mediates cellular elimination of many chemotherapeutic agents including paclitaxel, which is commonly used to treat ovarian cancer. A significant association between common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in ABCB1 and progression-free survival has been reported in patients with ovarian(More)
