Genomic mutations caused by cytotoxic agents used in cancer chemotherapy may cause secondary malignancies as well as contribute to the evolution of treatment-resistant tumour cells. The stable diploid genome of the chicken DT40 lymphoblast cell line, an established DNA repair model system, is well suited to accurately assay genomic mutations. We use whole(More)
Loss-of-function mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes increase the risk of cancer. Owing to their function in homologous recombination repair, much research has focused on the unstable genomic phenotype of BRCA1/2 mutant cells manifest mainly as large-scale rearrangements. We used whole-genome sequencing of multiple isogenic chicken DT40 cell clones to(More)
Self-incompatibility of sweet cherry (Prunus avium L.) is controlled by the multiallelic S-locus. While many cultivars and wild accessions have been S-genotyped, only limited data are available on accessions native to the center of origin of this species. Therefore, this study was carried out to determine the S-genotype of 11 landrace cultivars and 17 local(More)
Breeding for higher levels of health-promoting components are among the priorities for many fruit crops. Such an approach requires breeding material displaying great variations in the trait to be improved. Commercial sweet cherry cultivars demonstrate only limited variability in fruit antioxidant parameters and hence this study was carried out to(More)
The draft genome sequence of a novel Mycoplasma strain, designated Mycoplasma sp. HU2014, has been determined. The genome comprises 1,084,927 nucleotides and was obtained from a mycoplasma-infected culture of chicken DT40 cells. Phylogenetic analysis places this taxon in a group comprising the closely related species Mycoplasma yeatsii and Mycoplasma(More)
