Chromosome 6 is a metacentric chromosome that constitutes about 6% of the human genome. The finished sequence comprises 166,880,988 base pairs, representing the largest chromosome sequenced so far. The entire sequence has been subjected to high-quality manual annotation, resulting in the evidence-supported identification of 1,557 genes and 633 pseudogenes.(More)
In vitro selection techniques are useful means of dissecting the functions of both natural and artificial ribozymes. Using a self-cleaving conjugate containing the Escherichia coli ribonuclease P RNA and its substrate, pre-tRNA (Frank DN, Harris ME, Pace NR, 1994, Biochemistry 33:10800-10808), we have devised a method to select for catalytically active(More)
Losses of ammonia by volatilization from ammonium sulphate and urea applied to soil were studied in field conditions. Losses from ammonium sulphate generally were not large; ammonia volatilization is thus unlikely to be an important pathway of nitrogen loss from cropped soils, and does not explain the low responses to nitrogen fertilizer of wheat grown in(More)
The advantages of purification by denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) are speed, simplicity, and high resolution. Although yields tend to be low (<50% of applied sample), the amount of material recovered is usually far in excess of that required for most molecular biology applications (e.g., cloning and sequencing). Denaturing PAGE can(More)
