A homeobox sequence has been used to isolate a new Xenopus cDNA, named XIHbox6. A short probe from this gene serves as an early marker of posterior neural differentiation in the Xenopus nervous system. The gene recognized by this cDNA sequence is first transcribed at the late gastrula stage and solely in the posterior neural cells. The gene is expressed(More)
BACKGROUND The National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) cancer registries have been collecting data regarding estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) status in breast cancer since 1990. The current study reports on some of these data for eight racial/ethnic groups. METHODS Stratified by ER and PR status,(More)
Xenopus XlHbox 1 produces two transcripts during early development. One encodes a long open reading frame (ORF) and the other a short ORF sharing the same homeodomain, but differing by an 82 amino acid domain at the amino terminus. The long protein amino terminus is conserved with many other homeodomain proteins, and its absence from the short protein could(More)
A cDNA clone (p52) that contains all the protein-coding region from the maternally expressed XlHbox 2 locus of the frog Xenopus laevis has been isolated and sequenced. A probe containing the exon preceding the homeobox detected transcripts which arise from a splicing event in which the homeobox-containing exon is replaced by another exon lying 5' to it in(More)
Multiple kinds of clones and restriction fragment polymorphisms are frequently encountered when analyzing genes of the tetraploid frog Xenopus laevis. Two types of cDNA clone have been isolated for homeobox gene 2. Analysis of their corresponding genomic clones confirmed the existence of clearly distinct restriction maps; in addition the nearby presence of(More)
The accumulation of protein and RNA components of small nuclear U-ribonucleoprotein particles is non-co-ordinate during oogenesis and early embryogenesis in Xenopus laevis. Northern blot hybridization of a cloned Xenopus U2-RNA gene to oocyte and embryo RNAs demonstrates that the amount of small nuclear U2-RNA per oocyte reaches a plateau early in oogenesis(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the research was to provide a review of the efficacy of the TVT-O technique for the surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and to assess surgical and postsurgical complications related to this technique. STUDY DESIGN An initial assessment was carried out on 44 women who underwent TVT-O surgery between 16 September(More)
An unusual Ph 1 translocation in a woman, 65 years old, with chronic myelocytic leukemia is reported. Cytogenetic analysis performed on 150 mitoses examined with Q-, R-, and C-banding revealed evidence for an unusual translocation involving the insertion of a segment of chromosome #9 into chromosome #22, thus masking the presence of a Ph 1. The anomaly can(More)
We report the isolation of six different homeobox-containing genes in Xenopus laevis which are expressed during early embryogenesis. cDNA clones of all of them were partially sequenced including two from previously isolated Xenopus genomic loci and found to contain homeodomains which share a high degree of homology with the Antennapedia protein (50 to 59(More)
