Simple sequence repeats (SSRs), also referred to as microsatellites, represent a PCR-based marker system that has been described in mammalian and plant genomes in recent years. In self-pollinating crop plants they have been shown to be superior to other DNA markers with respect to their level of polymorphism. The technical advantages compared with RFLP(More)
Null-mutations of the Arabidopsis FKBP-like immunophilin TWISTED DWARF1 (TWD1) gene cause a pleiotropic phenotype characterized by reduction of cell elongation and disorientated growth of all plant organs. Heterologously expressed TWD1 does not exhibit cis-trans-peptidylprolyl isomerase (PPIase) activity and does not complement yeast FKBP12 mutants,(More)
Treatment of EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer patients with the tyrosine kinase inhibitors erlotinib or gefitinib results in high response rates and prolonged progression-free survival. Despite the development of sensitive mutation detection approaches, a thorough validation of these in a clinical setting has so far been lacking. We performed, in a(More)
