Leiomyosarcomas are spindle cell tumors showing smooth muscle differentiation. Until recently, most gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) were also classified as smooth muscle tumors, but now GISTs are recognized as a separate entity, defined as spindle cell and/or epithelioid tumors localized in the gastrointestinal tract. Using microarray-based(More)
With advances in next generation sequencing technologies and genomic capture techniques, exome sequencing has become a cost-effective approach for mutation detection in genetic diseases. However, computational prediction of copy number variants (CNVs) from exome sequence data is a challenging task. Whilst numerous programs are available, they have different(More)
We have cloned and sequenced the polA gene from Chloroflexus aurantiacus, a green nonsulfur eubacterium, and expressed the recombinant protein in Escherichia coli. One open reading frame encodes a protein with 942 amino acids showing 38% identity with DNA polymerase I from E. coli. Sequence alignments with other members of DNA polymerase family A and(More)
A practical method for collection and processing of mucosal secretion was developed to facilitate quantitation of its contents of secretory IgA (sIgA) and bacteria. Small discs were punched out from a commercially available synthetic electrophoresis wick. The discs absorbed a constant volume of saliva (52.4 +/- 3.9 microliters), and antibodies and(More)
