BACKGROUND Basal epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS) is a group of blistering genodermatoses mostly caused by mutations in the keratin genes, KRT5 and KRT14. Recessive mutations represent about 5% of all EBS mutations, being common and specific in populations with high consanguinity, where affected patients show severe phenotypes. OBJECTIVES To accomplish(More)
The HFE gene and its mutations C282Y and H63D cause hereditary haemochromatosis (HH). Among 54 affected individuals from North-East Scotland, 91% were homozygous for C282Y and 5.5% were compound heterozygotes for C282Y and H63D. The general population allele frequencies were high (8% and 15.7% for C282Y and H63D respectively). Although it is likely that HH(More)
A bacterial strain, designated RA6T, was isolated from the rhizosphere of Cistus ladanifer. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequence placed the isolate into the genus Delftia within a cluster encompassing the type strains of Delftia lacustris, Delftia tsuruhatensis, Delftia acidovorans and Delftia litopenaei, which presented greater than 97 %(More)
