To identify novel potassium channel genes expressed in the retina, we screened a human retina cDNA library with an EST sequence showing partial homology to inwardly rectifying potassium (Kir) channel genes. The isolated cDNA yielded a 2,961-base pair sequence with the predicted open reading frame showing strong homology to the rat Kir2. 4 (rKir2.4).(More)
PURPOSE To delineate the profile of genes expressed in the adult human retina and assign chromosomal location of cDNA clones. METHODS The end-sequence of random clones from an enriched human retinal cDNA library was analyzed by NCBI database search. Expression profile was established by northern blot analysis, database search, or both. Selected cDNA(More)
PURPOSE Large copy number variations (CNV) can contribute to increased burden for neurodegenerative diseases. In this study, we analyzed the genome-wide burden of large CNVs > 100 kb in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), a neurodegenerative disease of the eye that is the largest cause of irreversible blindness. METHODS Genome-wide analysis of CNVs > 100(More)
INK4 locus at chromosome 9p21 has been reported to be associated with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and its subtypes along with the associated optic disc parameters across the populations of European, Japanese and African ancestries. The locus encodes three tumor suppressor genes namely CDKN2A, ARF, CDKN2B and a long non-coding RNA CDKN2B-AS1 (also(More)
For future low-priced electronics, high performance thin film transistors (TFTs) are highly desirable. One possible way towards device optimization is the downscaling of the channel length (L) which allows higher device density, smaller device configuration and better performance. In this paper, we present a simulation study of bottom gate TFTs based on ZnO(More)
Glaucoma is the largest cause of irreversible blindness affecting more than 60 million people globally. The disease is defined as a gradual loss of peripheral vision due to death of Retinal Ganglion Cells (RGC). The RGC death is largely influenced by the rate of aqueous humor production by ciliary processes and its passage through the trabecular meshwork(More)
Somatic variation in DNA can cause cells to deviate from the preordained genomic path in both disease and healthy conditions. Here, using exome sequencing of paired tissue samples, we show that the normal human brain harbors somatic single base variations measuring up to 0.48% of the total variations. Interestingly, about 64% of these somatic variations in(More)
