We present a study on a non-consanguineous Irish family that includes two siblings (male and female) with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and chorioretinopathy. The children have been extensively investigated by the cardiac, metabolic and genetic teams but(More)
BACKGROUND Suicidal behaviour is known to aggregate in families. Patients with psychiatric disorders are at higher risk for suicide attempts (SA), however protective and risk genetic variants for suicide appear to be independent of underlying psychiatric disorders. Here we investigate genetic variants in genes important for neurobiological pathways linked(More)
DNA carrying inverted repeats was tested for transposition within the Drosophila genome. Five Bam HI segments containing related inverted repeats were isolated from D. melanogaster and analyzed by electron microscopy and restriction mapping. Southern blot experiments using single-copy flanking sequences as probes allowed the study of DNA arrangements at(More)
